The Timberwolves will try to deal Derrick Williams and No. 9 pick to move up in the draft, according to Charley Walters of the Pioneer Press. It's not known who the Timberwolves might be targeting, however.
This certainly isn't the first time that the Wolves have explored a trade for Williams and finding a solid return for him could prove to be difficult. The former No. 2 overall pick hasn't lived up to his potential in Minnesota, averaging 10.5 PPG with 5.1 RPG in his first two seasons.
A change of scenery might do Williams some good, however, as he's just a couple years removed from his status as a promising prospect. The forward attacked the basket in his days at Arizona and did well with his opportunities on the free throw line by converting 75% of the time. The 22-year-old boasts above-average raw strength but often times has found himself outmuscled by larger opponents in the NBA.
