The Minnesota Timberwolves have been stockpiling draft picks and young players since the Kevin Garnett trade and it has taken some time for those players to grow up. As a result, the Timberwolves have had three consecutive dismal seasons and a three lottery picks to show for their efforts. Even through the tough-to-watch seasons and head-shaking roster mistakes, the Timberwolves have a good core of young players that could take them to the playoffs in the near future.
The Timberwolves will have two first round picks in the upcoming NBA Draft, one being a lottery pick and the other being the Memphis Grizzlies' first round pick. General Manager David Kahn hasn't done the best job in terms of drafting players, but the incredible talent depth in this years' draft will make it difficult to make mistakes.
Depending on whether or not you believe that Ricky Rubio will play a game for the Timberwolves, the only things missing for this team are a stud point guard, a defense, and worthy bench players, all of which could be found through this draft if Kahn makes the right moves. Finding quality forwards in this draft are key and these are some prospects that should catch Kahn's eye.
