The Minnesota Timberwolves have a relatively uneventful offseason ahead of them, considering the amount of transactions (and draft picks) that they had in 2020. That said, there are still various ways general manager Gersson Rosas can go about improving upon the current roster.
The Minnesota Timberwolves were one of the worst teams in the NBA this past season – a lot of which was due to the injuries sustained by the main core of players (Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell, Malik Beasley all missing large amounts of time).
Consequently, the team should be naturally better due to getting a fully healthy roster in addition to the natural progression from players such as Anthony Edwards, Naz Reid, Jaylen Nowell, as well as every other young player on the roster.
Minnesota has a lot to look forward to next NBA season – and it will be EVEN more if they retain their draft pick through the NBA lottery – adding one of Cade Cunningham, Evan Mobley, or Jalen Suggs.
Additionally, it will be interesting to see whether Gersson Rosas trusts the roster he has already constructed or if he looks to made additional moves.
There is a strong possibility the Timberwolves don’t do anything this offseason. Minnesota might not have any draft picks and as it stands now, are coasting alongside the luxury tax line. The Timberwolves, even with the loss of Ed Davis and Jarred Vanderbilt, are going to be paying more in payroll in 2021-22 due to the salary increases across the remainder of the roster.
