You can’t simply stockpile talent to build a contender in the NBA. That talent has to fit.
A well-balanced roster always has a better chance of winning. Players with complementary skill sets are more likely to develop chemistry. Obviously, they need to be talented – but they also need to stay out of each other’s way.
The Minnesota Timberwolves may have missed that memo. Most significantly, their twin towers pairing of Rudy Gobert and Karl-Anthony Towns may be too collectively slow to play together successfully.
Still, the Wolves have other problems too. For example, D’Angelo Russell may be too ball-dominant to compliment Anthony Edwards. All told, this roster has several issues to fix.
Mike Conley of the Utah Jazz is one option linked to the Timberwolves in recent NBA trade rumors. The veteran will be a name to watch ahead of the midseason deadline.
Could the Timberwolves get a deal done for Conley?
