The Timberwolves lost Derrick Rose who was a big part of their 36 wins last season, not to mention Gibson and Saric. Though Saric never really fit there after being traded from Philadelphia. For the most part they have been replaced and then some. Minnesota traded Phoenix for rookie Jarrett Culver who could have a bright future in the the league. They signed Oregon big man, Jordan Bell, along with three ex Trail Blazers in, Noah Vonleh, Shabazz Napier and Jake Layman (who they sign and traded). They also signed undrafted Naz Reid.

They are a little better than last year, though it won’t amount to much change in their season, because the most of the rest of the west got better too. The Progress is there, at least on paper. We will  see how it plays out. Star Karl Anthony Towns hasn’t been the greatest leader, and has hurt his team at times more than he has helped. The Twolves will find themselves once again in the middle looking down. They will likely fight with Dallas for the 10th spot, but lose out. Not that either of those spots will get them into the playoffs.
