Minnesota Timberwolves: Top 30 Scorers in Franchise History

14 of 31

#18 – Chuck Person

Person averaged 19 points per game over six seasons with the Indiana Pacers before joining the Timberwolves for the 1992-93 campaign. If he’d put those numbers up in Minnesota, he’d surely rank higher than #18 on our list.

But over two seasons with the Wolves, Person only averaged 14.2 points per game while shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc. The decline in production was due in part to age (he played his age-28 and age-29 seasons in Minnesota and never averaged more than 10.8 points per game in his career) but also due to a lackluster supporting cast with the lowly Wolves.

Person was a good spot-up shooter and solid all-around player, but he was a mediocre free throw shooter who struggled to get to the line in the first place. He was an average-sized wing who simply lost his value when he stopped being athletic enough to get himself open, and playing alongside the likes of the 1993-1995 Wolves certainly didn’t lend itself to lots of quality shot attempts.

Overall, Person was a tad overrated for much of his 13-year career, largely due to his limited offensive versatility. But in the grand scheme of things for the Timberwolves, that’s good enough for 18th in franchise history.
