The Wolves were on the phone discussing potential trade scenarios right down to the wire, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski (via Twitter).

In his first and only college season, Edwards averaged 19.1 PPG, 5.2 RPG, and 2.8 APG on .402/.2.94/.772 shooting in 32 games (33.0 MPG) for the Bulldogs.
