With the NBA Draft less than a month away, here are 3 players the Minnesota Timberwolves could target with the 11th overall pick.
It is that time of the year again. With The Finals beginning this week, another vivacious NBA season is almost over. While two teams still remain in the NBA Playoffs, the other 28 teams already find themselves looking ahead to next season.
There are many different issues these teams may address during the offseason, but almost all of these teams share one, underlying question: “How do we make our team better?” The Minnesota Timberwolves are one such team that finds themselves asking this question.
After another disappointing regular season, the Timberwolves finished 36-46, good for 11th in the Western Conference. They followed up last year’s first playoff appearance in 14 years with another missed postseason. This has led to the Timberwolves addressing many issues this offseason, such as finding a new President of Basketball Operations, filling the vacant head coaching position, and building the right team around their young superstar, Karl-Anthony Towns.
With the first two of those issues already addressed, the Timberwolves’ attention now turns to the latter. With Minnesota not being a big free agent destination, the Timberwolves best course of action to improve its team is either through trade or the upcoming NBA draft.
After recently securing the 11th overall pick at the NBA Draft Lottery, the Timberwolves are in a great position to find a player who can contribute to the team immediately. Let’s look at three players Minnesota should consider on draft night.
