The Minnesota Timberwolves' roster is beginning to take shape as Gersson Rosas and Ryan Saunders brought in players to better fit their vision for this team. Here's how some of the new guys have fared thus far.

The Minnesota Timberwolves made a flurry of moves at the trade deadline that effectively ended the Tom Thibodeau era as Josh Okogie and Karl-Anthony Towns are the only players left from those years.

Gersson Rosas was aggressive in acquiring players who had some upside for the future and were better fits for the new pace-and-space system that he and Ryan Saunders have brought to Minnesota.

In the first edition of this two-part series, we examined how D'Angelo Russell, Malik Beasley, and Juancho Hernangomez have performed during their first month in a Timberwolves uniform as they hopefully begin a long and prosperous tenure in Minnesota.

Rosas was also able to pick up a few more important pieces for both the present and future in that series of trades including James Johnson, Jacob Evans, Omari Spellman, and Jarred Vanderbilt.

To close out this series, we'll take an in-depth look at how each of those players have looked in their new home and whether they will be a part of the organization's plans moving forward.
