The Timberwolves have made quite the statement regarding their future, and have made three big decisions that will alter the upcoming future of the franchise.
First off, they dealt for Michael Beasley, a player who couldn't seemed to find a true niche playing alongside Dwyane Wade in South Beach. David Kahn practically stole the B-Easy away from the Heat, and he looks to become a mainstay in the Land of 10,000 Lakes as his play has dramatically improved this season. Think about how dynamic of a player he would become if he developed defensively.
Secondly, management was given quite the complication in the summer of 2010. They had two great power forwards in Al Jefferson and Kevin Love and needed to decide which one to build around. Ultimately they went with youth and less experience, but so far it has paid off as Love is having an MVP-like campaign for the otherwise dismal season.
Finally, the Pups were destined to make a move for the versatile Anthony Randolph this February as the trade deadline approached. Eventually, the team gave up Corey Brewer, the best lockdown defender the team had since Trenton Hassell years ago. In return they got the ever so athletic Randolph, a guy who can play three positions.
These three moves will ultimately define the next piece of their history, and I expect each one to be around here for quite awhile. At 22 years old apiece, it makes sense of behalf of management.
