The Minnesota Timberwolves ran a very mature 2011 Draft with a clear strategy.
After ruining the 2009 campaign and failing to impress with the 2010 selections, GM David Kahn needed to prove his worth.
Minnesota listened to every offer that was thrown at them before the Draft. Rather than accepting a mediocre deal to attain a veteran, they held out for a great offer that never came.
Instead, they selected the best player available.
Minnesota has added Derrick Williams, Malcolm Lee, a future first rounder, two future second-rounders, and loads of cash.
If Kahn follows through on his claim that they will pursue veterans in free agency, he shows that the team is finally headed in a clear direction. They are no longer collecting assets without knowing how they will use them.
Finally, 'Wolves fans see the light at the end of the tunnel, and this draft definitely helped that light appear.
