Although the lockout has officially started, and there may not be a season next year, that doesn't mean we can't speculate about where this year's free agents will end up.
It's no secret that the Timberwolves desperately need a playable center. Anthony Randolph is rumored to have put on some serious weight this offseason, and if that's true he could prove serviceable. However, I doubt Randolph will be ready to start at center this year leaving the Wolves with a hole at the position.
Minnesota is absolutely loaded at forward, but right now Darko Milicic and Brad Miller figure to get most of the minutes at center. Some believe Kevin Love will play center on occasion, but in reality his defensive skills aren't up to par.
The best way for the Wolves to address this need is through free agency, and there are a few different options at center that I believe could be an effective way for the Wolves to solve their problem.
