This roster was assembled under former general manager David Kahn, who has had many a fan questioning the logic behind a few of his moves. Kahn made head-scratching draft decisions (drafting Rubio and Jonny Flynn in the same draft), traded for an injured Martell Webster, and has overpaid average-level players.
The current roster has been mired in mediocrity for years. The team had relative success under Kevin Garnett, and had hoped for more of the same under Kevin Love. But one Kevin was not like the other.
The Wolves now have a chance to press the “reset” button, and put the troubled past behind them.
The Wolves may have to spend a year licking their wounds, but you can bet that they’ll be back hungrier than ever.
