Sources: Minnesota Timberwolves acquire Patrick Beverley from Memphis Grizzlies

The Memphis Grizzlies will trade point guard Patrick Beverley to the Minnesota Timberwolves for forward Jarrett Culver and power forward Juancho Hernangómez, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Grizzlies had acquired Beverley from the LA Clippers in the trade that sent Eric Bledsoe to Los Angeles.

The 33-year-old Beverley was a popular player with the Clippers, with whom he spent the last four years of his career. He lost his starting job to Reggie Jackson in the Western Conference playoffs.

Beverley was a fan favorite in Los Angeles due to his defense and hustle and was an emotional leader for the Clippers when they exceeded expectations and surprisingly made the postseason in 2018-19. Beverley, however, was only able to play in 37 games last season due to injuries.

In nine seasons with the Houston Rockets and Clippers, Beverley averages 8.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 468 regular-season games.

The 22-year-old Culver was the sixth overall pick in the 2019 draft and averaged 5.3 points and 3.1 rebounds in 34 games last season. Hernangómez, 25, averaged 7.2 points and 3.9 rebounds in 52 games last season.
