NBA Trade Rumors: Minnesota Timberwolves Involved In 3-Way Trade With Lakers, Blazers?

The latest NBA trade rumors indicate that the Minnesota Timberwolves are once again involved in a three-way trade. Unlike the rumored deal on Tuesday night that was mostly involving minor players, Wednesday afternoon's deal involves sending Michael Beasley to the Los Angeles Lakers in a deal that would send Jamal Crawford from the Portland Trail Blazers to the Wolves.

Pieces of this deal have been talked about quite a bit for the past month and, while they have been rumored to be on and off several times, the trades have been made into a three-team trade that will apparently satisfy everyone involved. Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski broke the renewed talks on Twitter, saying "they're gathering momentum."

It's unclear what the Blazers would receive as part of the trade or what the Lakers would need to give up, but the Wolves have been involved in numerous deals in hopes of finding a starting shooting guard.

Whether unloading Beasley straight up for Crawford is worth it is a whole other column, but it appears that Crawford will join the likes of Jason Richardson and whoever else is out there as Minnesota trade possibilities in the final 24 hours before the NBA trade deadline.
