NBA Trade News: San Antonio Spurs Keldon Johnson Minnesota Timberwolves Trade Deal Under Consideration

The San Antonio Spurs’ forward Keldon Johnson might get traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves this summer. The Spurs signed the generational talent Victor Wembanyama through the lottery system, and they would like to build a quality squad around him. They also have the option to exploit the lottery system again, just like this time, but it is very unlikely since that would risk having the services of Victor.

On the other hand, the Timberwolves are struggling, and the management is going to make some changes there as well. Their duo of Karl Anthony Towns and Rudy Gobert did not work, and now one of the two players’ departure is imminent. Can the Timberwolves replace them with the Spurs’ 23-year-old forward this summer? Here is all the information you need about the trade between the San Antonio Spurs and the Minnesota Timberwolves involving Keldon Johnson.
