The Minnesota Timberwolves started to put it all together this season. Anthony Edwards showed that he is going to fulfill the promise of being the number-one draft pick while Karl-Anthony Towns continued to be stellar on offense, which has been the hallmark of his career.
The Timberwolves scored more points than anyone else in the NBA but unfortunately, they still had issues with their defense. The addition of Patrick Beverley certainly helped in that area, which was one of the main reasons they made it to the playoffs this season.
They added two first-round picks, they selected 7’1″ forward Walker Kessler out of Auburn with the 22nd pick and 6’5″ forward Wendell Moore out of Duke with pick 26th pick. Now, let’s take a look at the further roster moves the Timberwolves need to make this offseason.
4 roster moves the Minnesota Timberwolves need to make this offseason: 1. Guarantee Naz Reid
Currently, the best option that the Timberwolves have to back up Towns is Naz Reid. The 6’9″ center played 77 games last season, averaging 8.3 points and 3.9 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game. He was able to space the floor for the reserve unit, shooting 34.3 percent on 2.2 attempts per game from the perimeter.
Currently, there is a level of noise about the Timberwolves looking to upgrade their reserve center position with a defensive-minded veteran. The good thing about that is if the Timberwolves can’t make a move in the offseason, Reid’s deal is only worth $1.9 million. This is easily tradeable, or the Timberwolves could waive him if they manage to get their veteran.
