Casspi has played in just 23 games this season, 22 with the Kings and then he was part of the DeMarcus Cousins trade, but played just one game with the Pelicans in which he got injured and was then waived. Ever since, Casspi has been on the mend and keeping an eye out for a new team. The Clippers and Grizzlies were also reported as teams who were interested in Casspi.
The Timberwolves are out of the playoff picture (4.5 games back of the Nuggets for the eighth seed) so acquiring Casspi might be more of a long-term move for the youthful team. Casspi averaged 6.1 points and shot 39.4 percent from three this season, so the 28-year-old can make a nice role player if the fit is right.
