Timberwolves depth chart: C

Minnesota has arguably the best center rotation in the NBA. Rudy Gobert is back to being one of the best defensive anchors in the league. The Timberwolves can switch up with Karl-Anthony Towns taking over or insert Naz Reid, who would start at the five on multiple teams.

Starter: Rudy Gobert

Gobert is averaging 13.6 points, 12.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 2.1 blocks per game this season. He is not going to stretch the floor, but the three-time All-Star is one of the best rim protectors and rebounders in the world. Gobert is anchoring the best defense in the league and is having one of his best seasons.

Backup: Naz Reid

The 6’9 big man is shooting 41.3 percent from 3-point range this season while averaging over 12 points per game. Minnesota needs his scoring and floor spacing in their second unit. Reid is happy with the Timberwolves and is under contract for two more years after this season.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are one of the best teams in the Western Conference, and adding Monte Morris improves their depth. Can they make a deep playoff run in 2024? That is the goal, so stay tuned to see how it all plays out.
