    Default The Minnesota Timbewolves

    The Timberwolves still have some growing to do as a team, that much is for sure. But they're a young franchise (maybe as young - in their core - as the Sacramento Kings) and they're showing a ton of promise. Franchise point guard Ricky Rubio is already constantly featured in NBA.com's Top Ten Assists countdown on a daily basis, usually more than once. Derrick Williams is a nice complementary player to their other Franchise Cornerstone, Kevin Love, a bruising rebounding presence who can light up his threes. Center Nikola Pekovic is an all around glue guy - he's not afraid to get down and dirty and do what his team needs of him on a nightly basis*.

    In a couple of years, once they grow together on the court and pick up a decent SG, (best case scenario, they get Wiggins, scary.) they could be perennial contenders for years to come.

    PG: Rubio
    SG: Drafted Player (maybe trade up to get Ben McLemore - maybe their 1st and one of the myriad of PGs they have)
    SF: Derek Williams (a scrappy player, who's show to have some moves cutting to the basket and can also play the 4)
    PF: Kevin Love (a versatile PF/C, can shoot the three and bruise, which facilitates his teammate's play, see above)
    C: Nikola Pekovic (see above *)

    They won't get wiggins. They will have to start winning next season or K.Love is gone

    Pekovic is better than just a glue guy. The guy is a averaging like 16 & 10 and it's only his third year. Plus he's a big man that can actually score the basketball, there's only like 5 guys in the league who could be called centers that have a good offensive game

    They still have lots of promise with Rubio, Dieng, Wiggins, Bennett and Young.

    Exactly. I'm not gonna take credit for seeing these trades coming (which I totally did, if anyone asks :P ) but u did think they'd be an exciting team and damnit, they are!
