Finch to work together to unlock the potential of the Timberwolves’ defense Finch has experience coaching Gobert in Utah and will need to find a way to maximize his impact on that end of the floor. The addition of defensive-minded players like Patrick Beverley and Torrey Craig should also help improve the team’s defensive efficiency.
Offensively, the Timberwolves have a solid core with Edwards, Towns, and D’Angelo Russell. Edwards showed flashes of brilliance in his rookie season and will look to build on that momentum. Towns, when engaged, is one of the most skilled big men in the league and can dominate on any given night. Russell provides playmaking and scoring ability from the guard position.
One area of concern for the Timberwolves is their lack of depth at the wing position. While they have some promising young players like Jaden McDaniels and Leandro Bolmaro, they may need to rely heavily on Edwards and Russell to carry the scoring load.
Overall, the Timberwolves have the potential to be an entertaining team to watch. With the combination of Edwards’ explosive scoring ability, Towns’ unique skill set, and the leadership of coach Finch, they could make significant strides this season. However, consistency will be key for this team as they look to compete in a loaded Western Conference.
In the grand scheme of the league, the Timberwolves may not be in the top tier of competitive teams just yet, but they have the pieces in place to make noise and can be a team that fans will want to tune in to watch. As they continue to develop their young talent and build chemistry, the Timberwolves could become a team on the rise in the near future. Only time will tell if they can live up to their potential and climb the League Pass Rankings.
