    -In games that Karl-Anthony Towns started for the Wolves, the team had a record of 10-25 compared with 9-20 in games that Towns did not play

    -Malik Beasley was able to enter the standard league radar once he joined the Wolves, producing 8th/7th round per-game value in 14 games with the Wolves compared with the 23rd/22nd round per-game value that he had while playing for the Nuggets for the first 41 games of the season

    -After producing standard league value over his last eight seasons, the 2019-20 campaign was the first year since Jeff Teague’s second season in the league in which he was outside the top 150 in 8/9-cat leagues

    -Ryan Saunders remains the youngest active head coach in the NBA at 33 years old and is only one of two head coaches below the age of 40 (Taylor Jenkins, who coaches the Grizzlies, is 34)

    -Jordan McLaughlin finished the season as the highest ranked two-way contract player in terms of per-game value, finishing the season with 16th/15th per-game value
