The Minnesota Timberwolves have found themselves in the middle of a lot of NBA rumors recently. They were going after Nicolas Batum, but that seems to have stopped. OJ Mayo has been on the radar but it seems that he has been replaced by Courtney Lee.
I would think Mayo would be a better fit than Lee, but both would help solve a need for the TWolves. They are going to have a very surprising team next year. I think they could threaten for a playoff spot if everything works out the right way. They need a shooting guard and Lee is a very underrated one.
The best thing that Lee brings to the table is his defense. His offense isn’t overwhelming but his defense can help any team. If he is the best option on the table for Minnesota, they need to go after him and get him. I am shocked he does not have a deal right now, which means that teams are holding off on giving up money until the big names are taken care of.
Lee should draw interest from a lot more teams in the coming days, so the NBA rumors about his future team are going to be flying fast and furious. If you want to find a guy to fit into a winning team, it would be a guy like Courtney Lee. You might be able to get him for cheap too, which is another big thing when building a team.
