Minnesota Timberwolves: Top 30 Scorers in Franchise History

17 of 31

#15 – Ricky Davis

Around the turn of the millennium, the Timberwolves front office was, for whatever reason, enamored with Ricky Davis. When he was a restricted free agent, the Wolves signed Davis to an offer sheet before it was matched.

Eventually, the Wolves got their man, acquiring him in the first of a couple of blockbuster deals with the Boston Celtics. He arrived in Minnesota prior to the trade deadline in 2005 and proceeded to average 17.6 points per game in a Wolves uniform, shooting 36.5 percent from long-range with a true shooting percentage of 54.6.

He was actually a good scorer, and while it’s true that he never met a shot that he didn’t like, he was efficient enough that he didn’t ultimately hurt the team much at all on that end of the floor. And the fact that he wasn’t a good defender can’t factor into this particular list, so let’s set that aside.

The attitude and polarizing nature by which Davis went about his business soured the Wolves and their fans on him rather quickly, however, and he moved on after just 1 1/2 years in Minnesota. He played just three more seasons in the NBA and was out of the league after his age-30 season.
