The Minnesota Timberwolves are in the midst of a rudderless season that has seen a once-promising roster sink straight to Cheap Karl-Anthony Towns Jersey the bottom of the NBA standings. A smattering of injuries, positive COVID-19 tests, a coaching change, on-court chemistry problems, and general franchise malaise have all factored into Cheap Minnesota Timberwolves Jerseys a league-worst 9-30 record. No other player on the roster seems to encapsulate the struggles this season has offered more than second-year wing Jarrett Culver.

The 22-year-old has been all over the lineup in the first half of the season. Culver came off the bench at first. After Karl-Anthony Towns injured his wrist, he started a string Cheap Ricky Rubio Jersey of games at power forward. It was a tall task for the wiry 6’6”, 195-lb guard. While Culver showed some promise Cheap Jarrett Culver Jersey early in the season – a penchant for flying in and stealing rebounds from much taller players – he’s struggling once again this season, averaging 7.2 points per game along with 4.7 rebounds and 0.8 assists while shooting a paltry 22.9% from three.

To add injury to insult, Culver sprained his ankle on Jan. 25th against the Golden State Warriors and subsequently Cheap Josh Okogie Jersey missed 17 games. During his absence, Ryan Saunders was replaced by Chris Finch in a midseason move that drew the ire of many around the league.

Culver came back to a new system that seemingly didn’t have much time for him. The former sixth overall pick played just 37 minutes Cheap Naz Reid Jersey over the next three games in which he shot 3-for-17 (17.6%) from the field and scored a total of seven points, and he’s missed the three games immediately following the All-Star break with a toe injury.

A return to the court is imminent. Now the question is: Where does he fit on this team?

At the moment, the Timberwolves are surprisingly flush Cheap Jordan McLaughlin Jersey with young backcourt and wing talent thanks to the meteoric rise of Anthony Edwards, Jaden McDaniels, and Jaylen Nowell to add to the better-known commodities like D’Angelo Russell, Malik Beasley, Josh Okogie, and Culver.

Edwards is thriving in Finch’s offensive system, averaging 22 points in the eight games since Finch took over.
Nowell has found his niche as a sixth man off the bench and has a very similar game to Beasley — Minnesota’s best offensive Cheap Jake Layman Jersey player this season.
McDaniels has impressed fans and coaching staff alike with his versatility on defense, ability to handle the ball, and space the floor on offense.
Russell is expected to return from Cheap Jaylen Nowell Jersey his knee injury sometime in the next two to three weeks, and Beasley is halfway through his 12-game league suspension.
Okogie fills the role of wing defensive stopper in Minnesota’s rotation, which leaves little room for Culver when everyone is healthy and back from suspension. Culver and Okogie cancel each other out on the floor, both skilled Cheap Malik Beasley Jersey defenders (Okogie the superior ball-stopper) with limited impact on the offensive end of the floor. Add in Towns, Ricky Rubio, Naz Reid, and Jarred Vanderbilt as rotational stalwarts, and Culver is no higher than 11th in the rotation. He’s the odd man out and will have to fight with Jordan McLaughlin, Jake Layman, and Juan Hernangómez for spot minutes.

In his 19 games this season, Culver ranks seventh on the Timberwolves in minutes per game at 19.8. But that figure is just decimal Cheap Jarred Vanderbilt Jersey points ahead of McLaughlin, McDaniels, and Okogie.

There is a possibility that, upon his return, Culver eats significantly into Nowell’s minutes. But Nowell is averaging 14 points per game under Finch’s tutelage while shooting a blazing 50% from three over the last eight games. It seems increasingly unlikely that Nowell will relinquish his spot in the offensive coach’s rotation.

One avenue to fix the current logjam on the wing is to trade Culver. His athleticism, youth, and upside could be intriguing Cheap Anthony Edwards Jersey for potential trade partners, while the Wolves would be happy to flip the project for immediate frontline help (*cough John Collins cough*). Because Culver has had a rough sophomore season, the Wolves would likely have to add another young prospect or draft picks to any trade involving Culver.

Perhaps President of Basketball Operations Gersson Rosas opts to try to trade Okogie, Nowell, McDaniels, or a combination of Cheap Jaden McDaniels Jersey the three to try and land an impact player. Such a trade would allow Culver to return to his accustomed spot in the backcourt, but it does seem like the Wolves have big plans for McDaniels, and Nowell is a better fit than Culver off the bench.

The next few weeks without Russell and Beasley is possibly a make-or-break stretch for Culver. Excel and he will continue on his path to becoming an impact player in the NBA. Falter and he could quickly find himself on another team — or, far more grimly, out of the rotation altogether on the NBA’s worst team.

Minnesota Timberwolves training camp is underway, and the Wolves have also announced a series of new hires and promotions.
The Minnesota Timberwolves began training camp on Sunday. They also announced several new hires and promotions on their coaching staff and in the front office.

Let’s catch up on the most notable staffing changes, plus pass along some notes coming out of training camp.

Minnesota Timberwolves add Rudy Tomjanovich, others to team’s payroll
We noted the (virtual) presence of soon-to-be Hall-of-Famer Rudy Tomjanovich back during the pre-draft process.

The article by ESPN’s Royce Young focused on Rudy T’s thoughts related to a potential frontcourt pairing of current Wolves star Cheap Karl-Anthony Towns Jersey and prospect James Wiseman, but evidently, Tomjanovich’s presence went beyond his take that one potential scenario.

The Wolves have now officially announced the addition of Tomjanovich to the front office as a player personnel consultant, along with a host of other moves.

Tomjanovich, of course, won back-to-back championships in 1994 and 1995 as head coach of the Houston Rockets. He had a 503-397 record over 12 seasons in Houston and coached a half-season with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2004-05. He will be inducted into the Hall of Fame this year.

The Wolves also added Joseph Blair to the coaching staff as an assistant. He was with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, G League affiliate of the Houston Rockets, for several seasons and was the head coach in 2018-19.

Minnesota Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns is still grieving the death of his mother, Jacqueline Cruz-Towns, and opened up about the losses his family has experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Speaking to reporters Friday, Towns said he “hasn’t been in a good place” since his mom was hospitalized with COVID-19. She died from complications of the virus April 13.

In addition to his mom, Towns said he’s had six other family members die from COVID-19: “I’m the one looking for answers to try to keep my family well informed and make all the moves necessary to keep them alive.”

He said he doesn’t think playing will be a form of therapy for him because having his mom and other family watch him play basketball brought him a joy that will no longer be there:

In their statement announcing Cruz-Towns’ death, the Timberwolves noted she had been suffering from COVID-19 “for more than a month” when she died:

“Jackie was many things to many people—a wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. The matriarch of the Towns family, she was an incredible source of strength; a fiery caring, and extremely loving person, who touched everyone she met. Her passion was palpable and her energy will never be replaced.”

Towns has spoken openly about how difficult it has been for him and his family in the eight months since she died at the age of 59.

“I think for me, I think if I was to say how am I coping and how am I healing from this, I’m trying to heal myself through others,” he told Eric Todisco of People last month.

Even before his mother’s death, Towns was using his platform to help during the pandemic. The two-time All-Star announced March 15 a $100,000 donation to support the Mayo Clinic’s rollout of a test used to detect COVID-19.

There were several other additions as well, both in the basketball operations department and in other areas of the front office.

Ryan Saunders talks about Minnesota Timberwolves frontcourt rotation
The Minnesota Timberwolves suddenly have myriad combinations to consider in their frontcourt. As training camp got underway on Sunday, head coach Ryan Saunders spoke to the possibilities.

For those asking about Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: I think RHJ wasn’t named by Saunders because he is on a non-guaranteed contract.

Personally, if RHJ makes the team, I see him in more of a 5 role — maybe 4.5 next to KAT.

We’ve talked here at Dunking With Wolves about the likelihood of Cheap Jake Layman Jersey playing quite a bit at the 4, providing more defensive versatility and athleticism than Juancho Hernangomez.

The idea of Cheap Josh Okogie Jersey playing the 4 isn’t something we’ve heard before, but it isn’t shocking. Okogie’s height and wingspan will play, and his ability in transition and as a cutter on offense and versatility on defense will give him a chance to earn some minutes there.

Saunders also implies that Cheap Ed Davis Jersey will play more behind Towns at the 5 than alongside KAT at the 4. Surely, it will depend greatly on matchups, as will minutes for both Cheap Naz Reid Jersey and Cheap Jarred Vanderbilt Jersey.

Perhaps we’ll get a better sense for Saunders’ rotation as early as this Saturday when the Wolves open their preseason schedule against the Memphis Grizzlies.
