The NFL season is officially over and baseball is still a few weeks away, so that can mean only one thing: it’s time for the NBA trade deadline! The NBA is a gift that never stops getting, but the chaos created by both the trade deadline and the July free agent period is peak sports entertainment.
Last season, there was certainly speculation about Anthony Davis’ future. This year, however, it is very unlikely that any prominent former Wildcats will be on the move. There are rumors, however, that the Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to make some big moves in order to get Karl-Anthony Towns some help. Perhaps bigger moves than Tuesday’s acquisition of Jarred Vanderbilt.
It should be an exciting day, so clear your calendar around 3 p.m. to catch up on which former Kentucky players got moved, got help, or got screwed over.

Should Karl Anthony Towns ask for a trade? @KendrickPerkins says it's on KAT to be playing better, but it's hard to compete when pieces are getting traded around him. Here's where things stand with the Timberwolves: pic.twitter.com/6EIRNF9IVG— Rachel Nichols (@Rachel__Nichols) February 5, 2020
KAT is not happy with what the Timberwolves are doing.
The running back/wide receiver is drawing Lynn Bowden comparisons.
Jarred Vanderbilt is headed to Minnesota to join KAT! Also, 11 other people were traded.
The Cats could certainly use some depth right now.
Will the hit king ever get into the Hall of Fame? Or has he done too much over the years to damage his case?
Vandy’s AD has been living “high on the hog,” as we say in eastern Kentucky.
This EJ is the EJ that Big Blue Nation deserves.
Anthony Epps is making a name for himself as a coach.
Perhaps he ran out of student sections to scream at.
This really stinks for Joe. This also may have a large impact on the SEC POY race.
USA Today lists Kentucky as a 5-seed in the big dance. Sounds about right.
