How’d We Get Here?
The Wolves rid themselves of their Jimmy Butler problem and new POBO Gersson Rosas tried to reshape the team in his image. That meant lots and lots of turnover, with the Wolves trading away Andrew Wiggins, Robert Covington, Jeff Teague, Shabazz Napier, Gorgui Dieng, Keita Bates-Diop, Noah Vonleh, Jordan Bell and Treveon Graham this season. Some of those moves were bigger than others, but it was all part of the plan to clear the deck and nab D’Angelo Russell, who the team has been chasing for years.
Beyond Russell, the Wolves also welcomed in an entirely new bench group featuring Malik Beasley and Juan Hernangomez. Despite some growing pains from Jarrett Culver and an injury-riddled season from franchise player Karl-Anthony Towns, the Wolves are feeling optimistic about the future. The jury’s still way out on a KAT & D’Lo pairing, but Minnesota finally feels like they have some real direction, and that’s not nothing. With Ricky Rubio and top pick Anthony Edwards furthering the roster overhaul, the Wolves have the look of a potent offensive squad.
