This was the year the Minnesota Timberwolves were to finally break through the rugged Western Conference and make a name for themselves. They not only failed to make that jump to the elite, they have put themselves in a position where they could lose their franchise player. They must sell Kevin Love on the big picture and that is improving their roster.
Here are five free agents the Timberwolves should target this offseason.
This will be Granger's chance to shine in another small-market city. The weight won’t be on his shoulders so he should be able to just concentrate on basketball. The presence of Love and Ricky Rubio will do wonders for his game. His range will make the Timberwolves quite possibly the best offense in the NBA.
A great wing defender who also has the ability to get into the paint to either score or draw the foul, Deng will compliment both Love and Rubio.
I’m not too convinced that Rubio is the answer in Minnesota. Lowry has a great handle with the ball, plays good defense and is quite capable of knocking down a perimeter shot.
The Timberwolves could use Kevin Martin as a sixth man and let Stephenson start at the shooting guard position. His ball handling paired with Rubio’s will give the Timberwolves one of the faster backcourts in the league. His defense will be well received as Martin is a liability on that end of the floor.
Pierce is old and on the last leg of his career, but he could be a valuable backup and a great locker room guy for a team trying to get over the hump. His range and driving ability, along with his defense will be well received on this young team.
