The Minnesota Timberwolves had a dire need, and that need was for more shooting.
Kevin Martin and Chase Budinger largely addressed that, and Nikola Pekovic was retained as well. But where does that really leave the Timberwolves? A fringe playoff team with a great offense and very little defense?
Rick Adelman is a fantastic coach, and this will be a fun team that will score a lot of points, but it's hard to imagine it'll give anyone a real scare in the playoffs.
While it's understandable that Minnesota wants to win now to keep Kevin Love in a uniform, what kind of progress will he really be looking for? How will the Wolves get better going forward with a core that's pretty much locked up?
Granted, they had little choice but to do what they did, but I don't know how many of the bigger problems this offseason really solved.
