4. Seth Curry

On the surface, this doesn’t seem like that smart of a signing. The Wolves are already loaded at the shooting guard spot, and adding Seth Curry to that mix could cause some unwanted tension between him and Jarrett Culver, which could just lead to both of them being unhappy.

However, Culver can play multiple positions, and Curry showed his skills at the point guard position in the playoffs against the Golden State Warriors and his older brother, Stephen Curry.

The younger Curry made great strides in his contract year. He took on a diminished role with the Portland Trail Blazers, which led to lower stats, but he proved to be more efficient there and was a nice relief for either CJ McCollum or Damian Lillard when they needed it.

Curry would ideally fill the same role with the Timberwolves, giving a break to any of their guards when called upon while being able to keep the momentum going.

Convincing Curry to join the Wolves will be the hardest part of this deal. He’d most likely have to take another reduced role, and possibly even accept a pay cut compared to what other teams could offer him.

There is a small hope that he might want to connect with fellow Duke alum Tyus Jones, but outside of that, there’s really nothing else, which means the Wolves will have to go a little above what they’d like to pay him. The talent and shooting he’d provide might be worth it.
