    This team will be nice in 2/3 years really curious on who they draft this year tho Bc this draft class is mainly gaurd dominant and they already have dlo and Edwards and they don’t really need a big with towns and naz Reid and then they also drafted McDaniels so I’m really curious to see what they do with their pick this year

    As being a Minnesotan. The wolves are just as bad, worthless and embarrassment as the Minneapolis city council, Gov. Walz and Omar. A absolutely a dumpster fire here in Minnesota. Edwards is going to leave because that’s the history of the wolves and treating their players. KAt is weak and Russell hasn’t really played. We got a bunch of scrubs on the court who many can’t even name ... even Ray Charles could see how bad the team and state of MN are going

    How is it difficult to work Russell and Edwards in together when they have like 7 wins without Russell? And since when is a small forward considered part of the back court?

    Dlo played a lot of off ball on the Nets with Dinwiddie and led us to the playoffs playing that way... he can easily do that in Minnesota with Edwards

    They should have did whatever they had to To keep Jimmy Buckets he brought that toughness and leadership Although I think Jimmy made the right choice for himself to leave I still think Minnesota should have did more to try to keep him

    its not difficult cuz edwards can defend. Get him to master defense and threes have him dominate without handling the ball then second year after dlo established trust as primary pg have him run a devin booker role or have him run occassional pg

    I Think these guys could have something special but Kat has to be the guy he has to get tough and and start balling again how he did his second year ....get the right coach and the right supporting cast and I think they could be contenders gotta get some vets tho

  • ChrisbeFoSerious

    Next year- 1. Russell 2. Beasley 3. Edwards 4. McDaniels 5. Towns This NEEDS to be a monster offense at the very least healthy next year.

  • Edward Lee
    Edward Lee

    I’m sorry. But why r we still acting like KAT is a great big man. I don’t ever see greatness. He puts up numbers against teams with no true center. Soft body. Soft mentally. Not a winner. Fun how the media portrays DMC. Vs KAT. They love me some KAT. I doubt KAT will play passed his contract bc of the losses in his family. I remember at one point nba gms voted KAT as first player picked to start a franchise. But still after not making the playoffs let alone a .500 record. This is why I can’t trust the media anymore

    Ant,KatDlo & hopefully a top pick will be nice.... most likely 3 guy....

  • Justin Wilson
    Justin Wilson

    Easy DLO at the one, Ant at the 2, and KAT at the 5 like always

    • James DiAls
      James DiAls

      @Justin Wilson true I guess it just depends on the matchups really. I just think spreading some of the offense into the bench and bringing some of the defense into the starting lineup will be a better balance

    • Justin Wilson
      Justin Wilson

      @James DiAls maybe maybe. But maybe try both because small ball starting to work more

    • James DiAls
      James DiAls

      @Justin Wilson it’s too small I would have Beasley come off the bench as six man.

    • Justin Wilson
      Justin Wilson

      @Hoshang Merza feel like Beasley and Ant could both either be at the 2 or 3

    • Hoshang Merza
      Hoshang Merza

    It’s okay to have multiple ball handlers. In fact, that’s a good problem to have. Benefits: Injury insurance. Most championship teams need more than one handler.
