The Minnesota Timberwolves are going to need to pursue buy-low-high-upside players via trade this offseason due to a limited number of movable assets in addition to the 60-some-percent chance they don’t retain their draft pick in the lottery.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have been bad – actually, that’s an understatement. They have been horrendous this year. They were not competitive through several months of the NBA season.
As of recent, they have begun to turn things around – at least – as much as they can in a season which they’ve already been eliminated from playoff contention. Minnesota has won four of their previous ten games – a step up from the middle months of the season – the part which Karl-Anthony Towns was in and out of the lineup as well as Malik Beasley/D’Angelo Russell being hurt.
There aren’t many ways for the Timberwolves to improve this offseason. But getting guys that could potentially become high-level role players would dramatically help a team that has basically known four pieces on their current core: KAT, Russell, Beasley, and Edwards.
