The Timberwolves extending Patrick Beverley’s contract is a win-win

The Timberwolves acquired veteran guard Patrick Beverley from the Memphis Grizzlies in August at an absurdly low cost: embattled power forward Juancho Hernangomez, who has since been traded three times, and out-of-the-rotation former lottery pick Jarrett Culver, who remains out of Memphis’ rotation. Beverley will undoubtedly shoot the ball better moving forward, and the games lost due to injuries here and there are somewhat baked in with Beverley.

The contract makes sense for Beverley, as the $13 million he’ll get next year is only a small step back from the $14.3 million he’s making next year and in line with the average annual value of the $40 million he was paid over the last three years. The Wolves have a veteran leader and fantastic perimeter defense locked up for another year, and if things go completely south for whatever reason, Beverley will be an expiring contract at next year’s deadline.
