With the trade, Minnesota gets the toughness and leadership of Beverley for its young, developing roster. Timberwolves president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas is familiar with Beverley after their time together with the Houston Rockets.
Memphis, meanwhile, continues to add talent along the margins. Culver, 22, was the sixth overall pick in the 2019 draft and averaged 5.3 points and 3.1 rebounds in 34 games last season. Hernangomez, 25, averaged 7.2 points and 3.9 rebounds in 52 games last season.
He was a fan favorite in L.A. because of his defense and hustle and was an emotional leader for the Clippers when they exceeded expectations and surprisingly made the postseason in 2019. He was able to play in only 37 games last season because of injuries, however.
In nine seasons for the Rockets and the Clippers, Beverley averaged 8.8 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 468 regular-season games.
