I'm the exact opposite. I love the direction they are going. I'm excited to see how the team comes together. Guys like Gibson and Rose were not taking us anywhere, plus they steal minutes from anyone we want to develop. We signed a lot of young, bouncy, athletic types to 1 year deals (when players have most to prove) plus drafted perhaps the 3rd best player in the entire draft (Culver). Jake Layman is a great signing, plus Bell and Vonleh provide good youth in the post to take pressure of Towns. The roster is finally being constructed with a goal towards building around Towns. Teague also has a very movable contract, so we can definitely add more during the season and its obvious we are trying to create cap space for adding another star to go with Towns.Couple guys get banged up and he could make the T Wolves. I have never been less excited for a T Wolves season. Name two guys on the roster besides Towns and Wiggins?
All the guys I liked over the last several years are gone. Rubio, Jones, Gibson, Levine...even the Rose story was interesting.
Great our coach doesn't think you can teach rebounding....per Shooter:
Coach Ryan Saunders, on the Timberwolves’ signing of 6-foot-7 Jordan Murphy for training camp: “He’s competitive. It doesn’t matter how big he is — he’s going to find a way to get to loose balls. He has a knack for rebounding, and that’s something you can’t teach.”
Murph’s got some new ink! Glad to see these kids spend their earnings wisely.
