The Minnesota Timberwolves have undergone quite a bit of chaos this offseason, and most of it has been due to the antics of Kevin Love. Hopefully this summer's NBA draft will act as a healing salve for fans of the franchise, and it should be a lot of fun to watch Flip Saunders walking the sidelines again. His next stint with the Wolves will show how he did not get a fair shot (no pun intended) with the Washington Wizards.
I know that a pairing of Dante Exum and Ricky Rubio might sound appealing, but it would not work. Just not enough shooting. Obviously, the Wolves are probably losing one of their better shooters in Kevin Love, and they will need to replace his production somehow. It would be pretty funny if the power forward left, and then the Wolves ended up making the playoffs next season.
I do not know that a player's stock has dropped more than James Michael McAdoo's over the last couple seasons. The former UNC Tar Heel had a tough time in his last season, and Marcus Paige eventually had to step up as their crunch time scoring option. The Wolves could grab him with one of their three second round selections, because McAdoo is not a first round prospect anymore.
It probably seems like I am biased against international prospects, but I swear it is not so. Dario Saric probably has a place in the NBA; however, I question whether the T-Wolves would benefit from taking him on. A lot of teams will be looking at the forward in the second round.
It hurts me to put a Daniels on this list, but it had to be done. The Wolves would be looking at DeAndre with one of their second round picks, and it will be interesting to see who they end up going with. They have three picks in that round; so do not be surprised if one or two get traded.
Syracuse point guard Tyler Ennis won games against elite compeitition throughout high school and college. The only reason I put him on this list is because of the fit. I think that Ennis should be a starting point guard in the league, and he would obviously have to come off the bench for the T-Wolves.
