Derrick Williams is off to a rather mediocre start to his second NBA season with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Despite his high draft selection in the 2012 NBA draft, Williams has had to struggle to remain in the rotation with the Timberwolves, who have kept him on the bench in favor of more experienced alternatives, namely Kevin Love and Andrei Kirilenko.
Though Williams’ potential is tantalizing, it has become increasingly clear that Minnesota is not the right fit for him to start his career. As such, it seems likely that the Timberwolves will continue to explore trade options for the young forward.
Five such trade options, all verified through the ESPN NBA Trade Machine, can be found here.
