Timberwolves trade rumors: Utah Jazz forward Paul Millsap for Derrick Williams discussed

Millsap and Love to be teammates? - Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Minnesota has been very active thus far, at least in the rumor mill, as the trade deadline nears.

The Minnesota Timberwolves and Utah Jazz have been in discussions to swap forwards in Derrick Williams for Paul Millsap, per Chris Broussard of ESPN. The Wolves and general manager David Kahn have been exploring all sorts of deals as the NBA trade deadline is approaching on Feb. 21st. Here is the tweet from Broussard:

Could Millsap coincide with Kevin Love in the frontcourt for the Wolves? Millsap is a physical player and has been playing power forward throughout much of his career. However, Millsap can stretch the floor as he shoots 48-percent from the field and 35-percent from three-point range. His biggest assets are his rebounding and solid defense, but he's a very skilled offensive player that would work well next to Love.

In a crowded Utah frontcourt, Millsap is still averaging 15 points and 7.4 rebounds this season. The biggest obstacle in a deal for Millsap would be re-signing the talented forward. He's currently playing out the last year of his deal for $8.6 million and the 28 year-old should be able to command a raise for what could be his last big NBA contract.
