FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Former Razorback guard Patrick Beverley is headed to Salt Lake City.

The Pro Hog was part of a blockbuster trade Friday that centers around the Utah Jazz sending All-Star center Rudy Gobert to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

In return, Minnesota is sending Beverley, Jarred Vanderbilt, Malik Beasley, Leandro Bolmaro, recent first-round pick Walker Kessler, and four first round picks to Utah.

The deal was first reported by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Beverley is coming off of a season in which he helped lead the Timberwolves to the playoffs for the first time since 2018. In his only season in Minnesota, the former Hog averaged 9.2 points, 4.6 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 25.4 minutes per game, starting 54 of the 58 games he played in.

Utah is set to be the third team for Beverley in as many years, having spent last season in Minnesota, after playing for the Los Angeles Clippers for the four previous seasons.

Beverley will be entering his 11th season in the NBA.
