On today’s episode of The Gastroenteritis Blues, Steve and Dan are joined by The Athletic’s Jon Krawczynski. Jon is a senior NBA writer who covers the Minnesota Timberwolves more closely than anyone else in the league. Within their conversation, Jon tells Dan and Steve why he feels more confident than ever that the Wolves could end up trading for Ben Simmons, how this situation parallels to the Jimmy Butler situation the Wolves recently faced, what realistic options are still really on the table for Daryl Morey, and how it seems Simmons and Klutch would respond to a trade to Minnesota.
Plus: what is the Sixers’ play if they still ultimately want Damian Lillard or another star? Which other teams should we keep an eye on in these negotiations? And what could Minnesota offer Philadelphia that Jon thinks is immensely valuable?
