If there is anything certain about the 2018-19 season for the Minnesota Timberwolves, it’s that there will be no shortage of drama on and off the court. Franchise cornerstones Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins are signed long term, while the trade request and impending free agency of Jimmy Butler looms large over the franchise. Despite Butler publicly requesting a trade, he is still in Minnesota and helping the team win games on the floor. If healthy and clicking on all cylinders, the Wolves have enough talent to make some noise in the Western Conference playoffs.
Last year the Wolves broke their 13-year playoff drought, sneaking in as the 8th seed on the last day of the regular season. Despite an early exit to the top seeded Houston Rockets, there is plenty of reason for optimism. Minnesota finished just 2 games back of the #3 seed, and most of their losses in the second half of the season came while Jimmy Butler was sidelined with an injury. Even with the drama surrounding Jimmy Butler, the Wolves are a very good team with tons of potential.
Jimmy Butler is undoubtedly a top-15 player in the league, and as long as he is in Minnesota, he will be a major asset for the Wolves. His scoring ability, defensive talent, and overall versatility make him a complete two-way player. After Butler, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins will need to take on bigger leadership roles this season. Towns is one of the most talented big men in the league, and he is just a few steps away from becoming the NBA’s next superstar. A gifted scorer and athlete, Andrew Wiggins needs to prove he can live up to the huge contract that the Timberwolves gave him last year.
Head Coach and President of Basketball Operations Tom Thibodeau has crafted a roster of veterans surrounding the big three. Jeff Teague and a resurgent Derrick Rose will handle most of the point guard duties, while Gorgui Dieng and Taj Gibson add depth in the frontcourt. Rose looks like he isn’t done just yet, with plenty left in the tank.
