Minnesota made its way into the League’s Top 10 best defenses, posting a nice 103.8 points averaged over 100 possessions. It’s better than Utah, Miami, or the defending champion!
And Patrick Beverley is no stranger to this new face displayed by Wolves, The Athletic ensuring that the franchise of the Minnesota has already started talks in order to secure as quickly as possible the future of the 33-year-old leader, who sets the tone on this side of the floor.
“Defensively, we had no identity. When Pat Bev arrived, we got a vocal and demanding player. He demanded a lot from the guys, in terms of energy “, recently recalled D’Angelo Russell about the contribution of his teammate.
Currently injured in the adductor, Pat Beverley spares no effort from the bench to reframe and encourage his teammates. In his final year of contract, at $ 14.3 million a season, he is therefore eligible for a contract extension which he can sign as soon as the two sides come to an agreement.
Note that the Wolves would also consider surveying the market for a possible exchange, in order to seek the playoffs, and that a player would particularly interest the “front office”: Myles Turner.
