Minnesota gets the toughness and leadership of Beverley for its young, developing roster. Gersson Rosas had Beverley on his team with Rockets and knows what he brings. Memphis continues to add talent along the margins, including Culver, who’s only 22 and a former No. 6 pick.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) August 17, 2021
Culver was acquired by the Timberwolves on a draft-night trade in 2019. He was taken with the No. 6 overall pick in the draft.
He spent two years in Minnesota, scoring 9.2 points per game as a rookie in 2019-20 and 5.3 points per game in 2020-21. He was limited to 34 games with ankle injury last season.
Before turning pro, Culver spent two years at Texas Tech. He starred for a Red Raider team that reached the 2019 NCAA National Championship Game. He hails from Lubbock originally and graduated from Coronado High School in 2017.
