2022-2023 Season Preview

Projected Record: 49 – 33

The Timberwolves have a lot of young talent, and they’re led by three-time All-Star Karl-Anthony Towns. Towns is one of the best big men in the league, and he’s only getting better. Alongside Towns is fellow All-Star Rudy Gobert, who was acquired in a major trade this offseason. Gobert is one of the best defensive players in the league, and he’s a great complement to Towns on offense, allowing KAT to play on the perimeter. Rudy will also anchor the new look defense Coach Chris Finch is looking to install.

The Timberwolves also have a couple of young players who are looking to take their games to the next level. Anthony Edwards  showed glimpses of his potential during his sophomore season leading the team to the playoffs. He’s an explosive scorer who can get to the basket at will, and he has unlimited range on his jump shot. If he can continue to develop his all-around game, he has a chance to be special. D’Angelo Russell hase struggled to find his place with the team, mostly due to injury He’s a talented scorer who can create his own shot, but he hasn’t been able to put it all together so far in his career. If he can figure things out, he could be a key piece for the Timberwolves this season.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have a lot of talent, and they’re looking to make a run at the playoffs this year. With Karl-Anthony Towns and Rudy Gobert leading the way, they have a chance to be special on both ends of the court. If their young players can develop as planned, they could be dangerous come playoff time.
