NBA Trade Rumors: Is Michael Beasley Going To Be The Biggest Name Traded?

NBA trade rumors have been flowing all around the Minnesota Timberwolves for the past few weeks, but they'll all come to a halt with Thursday's NBA trade deadline. Prior to that happening, however, it seems the Wolves will be without forward Michael Beasley.

Beasley is coveted by quite a few teams, as we've reported in this StoryStream, and that puts him in rare air. According to ESPN's Marc Stein, the Wolves forward is likely going to be the biggest name dealt by March 15.

Given the leaguewide skepticism about Howard, Rondo or Gasol getting dealt -- ditto for Nash and Josh Smith, too -- Minnesota's Michael Beasley might well rank as the player of prominence most likely to be moved at this stage.

And that's only if Beasley's status as the No. 2 overall pick from the 2008 draft can still enable us to get away with calling him prominent.

Whether it's to the Los Angeles Lakers, Orlando Magic, New Jersey Nets or anyone else, it seems like there are just six days remaining until Beasley jerseys are put on the clearance rack in the Timberwolves team store.
