Buh-bye, Kevin Love.

Hello, future.

With Love officially a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, tomorrow starts today for the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Work needs to be done on the heels of acquiring Andrew Wiggins, Thaddeus Young and Anthony Bennett. Rotations must be solidified. Roles need to be hashed out.

The ideal starting lineup must be built.

Figuring out who the Timberwolves must start on opening night isn't incredibly difficult. Short-term goals demand they field the right blend of talent, experience and potential to play beside one another.

Long-term aims might manipulate that focus later on, but for now there are five guys—new and old—ready to give Minnesota a taste of the ideal.
