The Memphis Grizzlies continued their wheeling and dealing on Tuesday, reportedly trading veteran point guard Patrick Beverley days after acquiring him.
Beverley, who was part of the return the Grizzlies received from the Clippers in exchange for Eric Bledsoe over the weekend, won’t be suiting up for Memphis. He was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves this morning.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Minnesota sent big man Juancho Hernangomez and wing Jarrett Culver to the Grizzlies for Beverley. The Phoenix Suns previously made Culver the No. 6 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft before trading him to the Timberwolves for Cameron Johnson and Dario Saric.
Hernangomez, meanwhile, has played five seasons in the NBA with Minnesota and Denver, averaging 5.7 points and 3.5 rebounds per appearance.

The 33-year-old Beverley averaged 8.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game in 177 appearances for the Clippers over the last four seasons. In that time, he further established himself as a defensive pest and blue-collar role player.
Beverley was an NBA All-Defensive Second Team selection with LA in 2020 after previously earning All-Defensive First Team honors with the Houston Rockets in 2014 and 2017.
