Report: Timberwolves have discussed acquiring No. 4 pick from Pelicans
There have been lots of rumors regarding which teams may be pushing the most to grab the top five pick from the Pelicans, and the Timberwolves are another one that can be added to the list.
Minnesota currently has the No. 11 overall pick, and it seems as though the front office is staying busy when it comes to finding potential trade partners.
And one option could be making a deal with the Pelicans for the No. 4 pick, according to Marc Stein of the New York Times.
The Timberwolves have been aggressive in their attempts to move up in the draft from No. 11 and are among the teams that have discussed acquiring No. 4 from New Orleans, league sources say

It makes sense why lots of teams are intrigued by the possibility of getting the pick from New Orleans, as the franchise has lots of options after trading Anthony Davis to the Los Angeles Lakers.
As for who the Timberwolves could be targeting, there are some interesting options considering that most expect Zion Williamson to land with the Pelicans at No. 1 overall, Ja Morant to go the Memphis Grizzlies with the No. 2 pick, and RJ Barrett to join the New York Knicks with the No. 3 pick.
That could make players like DeAndre Hunter, Jarrett Culver, and Cam Reddish potential options for the Timberwolves if they can give the Pelicans enough incentive to make a trade.
