2. Eric Gordon - 37.1%

Now, we move into the more lethal-shooting free agents on this list. As Minnesota scours the free agent market for good fits, they may have to give serious consideration to Eric Gordon. The long-tenured wing is a gritty, playoff-tested veteran that has been in many battles against some of the best teams of the last decade in the NBA.

During his time with the Rockets, Gordon competed against the 2017 Spurs, 2018 Warriors, 2019 Warriors and 2020 Lakers, all considered to be some of the top teams in the 10 years in this league. More recently, he suited up for the Suns in the 2024 playoffs as the Timberwolves completed a four-game sweep of Phoenix. Now, he could be a great fit in Minnesota if he is willing to both sign for the minimum as well as join the team that defeated him in the postseason.

Some may wonder what the value of adding another aging player to an already relatively old roster would be, but the answer lies in Gordon's experience. We saw the massive impact that Mike Conley's leadership had in this Wolves locker room all season, and Gordon could give this group a similar type of boost.
