The Minnesota Timberwolves have one of the most interesting offseasons ahead. Along with the pending restricted free agencies of Malik Beasley and Juan Hernangomez, the Timberwolves have the most draft capital of any team in the NBA.
The Minnesota Timberwolves currently have three picks in the draft: one projected to be a top-5 selection, another expected to be just after the lottery, and an early second-round pick. Building a team through rookies can be a difficult endeavor, however, Gersson Rosas has a solid vision for what he wants in a team, and quality young talent is hard to come by.
While it is certainly unlikely the Timberwolves maintain all three of their draft picks (whether it be via trade or Brooklyn playing their way into the lottery), Minnesota will absolutely have a plethora of options.
In terms of team needs, the Timberwolves need any and all talent. While they have some solid players (Russell, Towns, Beasley, Okogie, Johnson), they need to find more consistent two-way role players. Having players such as Naz Reid play a handful of minutes, while promising, ultimately may not be the best long-term option.
Improving the overall rotation for guards, wings, forwards, and bigs are absolutely crucial. The Timberwolves need players that can play defense, shoot, and just have overall complementary skillsets.
Note: This is a big board based on who would be a good fit for the Timberwolves’ roster, not the general NBA.
