3. Josh Richardson - 36.4%

Another area the Timberwolves could seek to improve this summer is at point guard. Mike Conley will still be this team's starting ball-handler for the foreseeable future. He may be getting up there in age, but Minnesota Mike has kept up a high level of play and continues to contribute in meaningful ways with knockdown catch-and-shoot ability along with serviceable defense and a strong mind for the game.

But as the Wolves consider the future of that position, they will likely hope to acquire at least a more solid backup point guard. The midseason acquisition of Monte Morris was far from a failure, but he was more of a placeholder for when Conley was off the floor and was not able to do much to elevate his teammates while he was on the floor. Minnesota will have a few solid options on the free agent market.

One is Josh Richardson. With a player option on his contract with the Heat this summer, Richardson could choose to make a move to a contender. If he does, he could be an excellent fit in the Timberwolves' backcourt. Coming off the bench would give him an opportunity to move without the ball and knock down spot-up threes like he is so used to doing.
