Orignal story: 

The Timberwolves have traded up in the NBA Draft, sending forward Dario Saric and the 11th overall to the Phoenix Suns, in exchange for the sixth overall pick in Thursday's NBA Draft, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

There's been rumblings all week that Minnesota could move up in the draft. 

It’s unknown yet who the Wolves are targeting Darius Garland and North Carolina’s Colby White could be targets.

Saric was acquired by the Wolves in the Jimmy Butler trade last year and played in 68 games, averaging 10.5 points on 45 percent shooting from the floor. 

Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports the Wolves wanted to give up to No. 4 but weren’t able to do so.
