The Nets have been involved in discussions of a trade that would send MarShon Brooks to the Timberwolves, multiple sources told the Daily News.
Minnesota has shown interest in the third-year guard out of Providence, calling around the league for feedback and initiating trade discussions. Talks have not escalated to anything serious or imminent at the moment, according to a source. However, another source said that a proposal is on the table waiting for the Timberwolves' approval.
The Wolves have been pursuing shooting guard options for a while. Moving Brooks' salary doesn't do them much good in pursuing free agents or saving on the luxury tax.
You can't imagine the Wolves sending a draft pick with any value for Brooks, so a second-rounder would have to be the favorite in terms of give back from Minnesota. The Wolves had hoped that Brandon Roy would be the answer for them at shooting guard, but he was unable to play once again this season due to knee injuries.
Brooks averaged five points and one rebound last season for Brooklyn, playing just 13 minutes per game.
