The opportunity in Minnesota might be better than in Philadelphia, which used the No. 1 pick in the draft to select Markelle Fultz and then brought several other point guards, including Trimble, to summer league.
The Timberwolves traded their starting point guard, Ricky Rubio, to the Utah Jazz on draft night for a first-round pick in 2018 as well as guards Kris Dunn and Zach Lavine in the deal that brought shooting guard Jimmy Butler from the Chicago Bulls.
Minnesota currently has two point guards, Jeff Teague and Tyus Jones, on a roster of 13 players.
Both are former first-round draft picks and Teague was an NBA All-Star in 2015 with the Atlanta Hawks. Jones was the team's No. 1 pick in 2015, and has averaged a little under 14 minutes a game in his first two years.
The Timberwolves have one two-way contract left that will pay the player more than they would normally make in what is now called the G-League. Minnesota signed Anthony Brown, who started 29 games as a rookie in 2015-16 for the Los Angeles Lakers, to its Iowa-based G-League team Tuesday.
