2. Taurean Prince

The first player on the list to play two full seasons in Minnesota is Taurean Prince. The former Baylor Bear called Minneapolis home from 2021 to 2023. In two seasons with the squad, Prince averaged 8.1 points and drilled 160 three-pointers.

The 6-foot-6 wing brings value as a combo forward. Prince has spent the majority of his time as a small forward but also played some power forward and even a blip at shooting guard. Adding Prince to a reserve unit consisting of Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Reid is picturesque. The 30-year-old could play next to Reid at the four, or bump down to the three if the Wolves retain Anderson or bring in another big.

From the start of the season to the finish, the Wolves have needed additional perimeter shooters—and that's what Prince offers. More than half of Prince's field goal attempts were no-dribble 3-pointers this past season. Of such field goals, the veteran forward held a 39.4 percent clip.

Prince also canned 37.0 percent of his pull-up threes despite primarily operating as a catch-and-shoot player. Unlike many off-ball wings in today's league, Prince isn't uncomfortable putting the ball on the floor to get a better look.

The highly sought-after 3-and-D label doesn't commonly describe Prince's game, but he holds up on the less glamorous end. Sans one professional season, Prince's opponents' shooting percentages have remained near average when defended by the 6-foot-6 wing.
