Timberwolves depth chart

The Timberwolves depth chart, or the depth chart for any NBA team, is merely a guide. There are no hard and fast rules over who can end up where in any given rotation. Depending upon how players perform on any given night, who is the opposing team, and which lineups are most effective, the Timberwolves could deploy either a small ball or a tall ball lineup.

And that is the beauty of versatile players. They give the team the ability to transform into the optimal configuration for any given game-time circumstances. So what does the Timberwolves depth chart look like?  Let’s examine and discuss:

Timberwolves depth chart

  • Point guards:  Mike Conley Jr. | Shake Milton | Jordan McLaughlin (Exh 10) Javonte Cooke
  • PG Summary: Unlike the start of last season, the Timberwolves have a solid stable of point guards who can facilitate, shoot from the perimeter, and defend the perimeter as well.
  • Shooting guards: Anthony Edwards | Nickeil Alexander-Walker |  Wendell Moore Jr | (Two-Way) Jaylen Clark
  • SG Summary: The Timberwolves have to love their SG depth this year. Led by 22-year-old Anthony Edwards, there is plenty of gritty defense among this group, and they are all young and getting better all the time.
  • Small forwards: Jaden McDaniels | Troy Brown Jr. | Leonard Miller
  • SF Summary: It’s clear that the Timberwolves have stressed defense in this position this season. But if the Timberwolves are truly going to advance in the NBA Playoffs, this group will need to be the engine. The Timberwolves need perimeter shooting, defense, and many more rebounds.
  • Power Forwards: Karl-Anthony Towns | Kyle Anderson | Josh Minott
  • PF Summary: The Timberwolves need a healthy KAT to compete this season, but he is not the only player who needs to step up. Young PF Josh Minott must show signs of earning more playing time as well this year.
  • Centers: Rudy Gobert | Naz Reid | (Two-Way) Luka Garza
  • C Summary: The Timberwolves will interchange centers and power forwards this year, which is exactly how the team rotated last season. While Rudy Gobert remains a starter, the Timberwolves have a pair of exciting young centers behind him who will need more playing time this season.
  • Open roster spots – (1) 15-man roster, (1) Two-Way contract

The Timberwolves have reason to be optimistic. The Timberwolves front office was very selective over who was added to the Timberwolves roster, much like someone assembles the image from a 1000-piece jigsaw puzzle. Now, the final task is assessing how well this new Timberwolves depth chart might perform this season.
