1. Seth Curry - 43.1%

We all saw how the Timberwolves' offensive struggles led to their ultimate downfall against the Mavericks. The team struggled against the defense of big wings like PJ Washington and Derrick Jones Jr., and Minnesota simply did not have enough firepower to break them out of slumps. Oftemtimes, Anthony Edwards was the Wolves' only reliable shot creator.

For the playoffs as a whole, the Timberwolves ranked 8th out of the 16 playoff teams in terms of three-point percentage. They connected on 35.9% of their three-point shots in the postseason, which is a decent mark, but one that will need to be improved on if they are to create more matchup advantages and make a deeper run next year. Both teams currently competing in the NBA Finals ranked higher than the Wolves in this crucial category.

One big-time shooter Minnesota can bring in to help with this issue is Seth Curry. The brother of the greatest shooter of all time, Seth has more than a decent shot himself. He can boast at least a 40% three-point shooting percentage in eight of his 11 professional seasons to this point, including four seasons with at least a 45% mark. His dead-eye shooting would be a big lift to the Timberwolves, and he would be a great option if Charlotte does not keep him around past this summer.
