Well, good news, you’re in the right place.
I’ve done some research and have found players who played for both the Timberwolves and the Pacers.
Selected in the second round of the 2010 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers, Lance Stephenson spent the first four seasons of his career in Indiana. His best season came in 2013-14 when he averaged 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 4.6 assists per game, and led the NBA in triple-doubles (5).
He was a significant contributor to the Pacers teams that made back-to-back Eastern Conference Finals appearances in 2013 and 2014.
Stephenson later played for several other teams, including the Hornets, Clippers, Grizzlies, Pelicans, and Lakers. Despite bouncing around the league, his dynamic playstyle and sometimes flamboyant on-court antics have made him a memorable figure in the NBA.
Jeff Teague, an NBA veteran with a career span of over a decade, was selected 19th overall in the 2009 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks. Known for his quickness and playmaking ability, Teague quickly rose to prominence as the Hawks’ starting point guard.
Perhaps his best season in Atlanta (and possibly career) was in 2014-2015 when he averaged 15.9 points, 7.0 assists per game, and was named an NBA All-Star.
Teague’s career, though characterized by frequent team changes, has been consistent in terms of his contributions on the court with career averages of 12.2 points and 5.6 assists per game.
Teague Key Stats
- All-Star (Hawks)
- 5+ Assists/Game Season (Hawks, Pacers, Timberwolves)
Al Jefferson was drafted straight out of high school as the 15th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics. He played three seasons in Boston before being traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a package deal for Kevin Garnett in the 2007 offseason.
In Minnesota, he had some of his best years, averaging over 20 points per game in multiple seasons. In 2010, Jefferson was traded to the Utah Jazz, where he continued to be a reliable offensive threat.
After three seasons in Utah, he signed as a free agent with the Charlotte Hornets (known as the Charlotte Bobcats in his first season with the team) in 2013. His first season with the Hornets was a standout, with Jefferson earning All-NBA Third Team honors.

After a standout freshman year at Georgia Tech, Thaddeus Young declared for the NBA Draft and was selected 12th overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in 2007.
In Philadelphia, Young emerged as a consistent scorer and solid rebounder, playing seven seasons there before stints with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Brooklyn Nets, Indiana Pacers, Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors.
He has often been praised for his work ethic and leadership, particularly in mentoring younger players. Young has career averages of 12.4 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game in the NBA.
