Brandon Williams – Guard (unrestricted free agent)

Have you ever heard the term shot out of a cannon? Because that is perhaps the only way to describe Brandon William’s game. Williams has an explosive first step, and when packaged with his finishing and pocket pass ability it’s easy to see why he scored 20ppg in the G-League last year.

Well hello there Brandon Williams, are you available this October-April? Because in a day marked with excitement over Leonard Miller and Josh Minott, Williams stole the show. This guy can flat-out score. Don’t blink in transition, because if you do you’ll miss him.

Williams has made an early statement as a guy to watch to give Matt Ryan a run for the third two-way spot. Going forward, I will be looking out for how his jumper looks, and if he can be a facilitator offensively. Regardless, what a first impression Williams has left the Wolves nation with.

Could Brandon Williams carve out a spot on the Minnesota Timberwolves roster?

Brian Bowen II – Forward (Iowa Wolves)

Bowen has previously spent time with the Wolves organization, as in 2021-22 he donned the Iowa Wolves across his chest. He’s a tough wing who can play guard in a pinch. He isn’t afraid of contract and can be seen mixing it up defensively. As a 24-year-old, Bowen is fighting for his NBA dream this summer.

While he wasn’t the star of the show, Bowen played his role in game 1 and played it extremely effectively. He connected on a triple and left everything on the court defensively diving for loose balls and showing high levels of activity on the glass.

It’s hard to see him landing with one of our roster spots, but continued strong performances and three-point makes could see him extend his career in Iowa or land an opportunity on another team.
