NBA Draft Preview 2011: 5 Guard Prospects Minnesota Timberwolves Should Target

The remainder of the 2011 NBA season is, and has been, a period of growth for the current Minnesota Timberwolves team. With power forward Kevin Love becoming an All-Star talent and the face of the franchise, general manager David Kahn must do what it takes to build a contender in the Twin Cities.

Some think Ricky Rubio is the answer at point guard, but that is definitely debatable as he might not ever wear a Timberwolves jersey. Rubio would prefer to play for a bigger market and also on the East coast, neither of which is Minnesota. It would be better to trade away his rights and pursue an elite point guard in this years' draft. 

The guard position will be addressed in the 2011 draft and there are several studs waiting to play in the NBA. Kahn will need to make the correct decisions as he tries to improve the team, rather than make the team worse.
