The Minnesota Timberwolves have become one of the most frustrating franchises in the NBA over the past few seasons. With Blake Griffin's star on the rise in L.A., they may have already replaced the Clippers as the team the team least likely to inspire it's fans with hope for the upcoming season.
Sure, Kevin Love is good, and will probably be an All-Star candidate for years to come. But outside of him and possibly Ricky Rubio, most fans wouldn't even be able to give the names of the rest of Minnesota's projected starting five.
It's sad to think that just a few years back, Kevin Garnett was leading to this team to the playoffs every single season, culminating in a trip to the Western Conference Finals in 2003-04. But a lot of things have gone wrong since, and the T-Wolves haven't been back.
Just like any other team, they could be good again very soon, if the right moves are made and the right pieces are either kept or sent elsewhere to bring in new talent. Here are a few moves that, if somehow accomplished, could impact this teams fortunes in a very positive way in the very near future.
