Minnesota Timberwolves 2014-2015 Outlook
The Minnesota Timberwolves sent away Kevin Love for a couple of No. 1 overall picks in Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett. This was not a minor pivot in the franchise’s effort to build a winner; it was a tire-squealing 90-degree turn.
Notable holdovers Ricky Rubio and Nikola Pekovic are probably best known to fans outside the Twin Cities, though Gorgui Dieng may be the most promising returner. Also still in place is Kevin Martin, mainly because the Wolves found no takers for a summertime trade.
Make no mistake, this season is about the developing the youngsters. Wiggins, Bennett, Dieng, rookie Zach LaVine and second-year guard Shabazz Muhammad won’t get this team to the playoffs, but they’ll form the foundation of a new era.
Minnesota doesn’t attract stars, and we’ve now seen that it struggles to keep the ones it drafts. Ensuring this crop of talent actually amounts to something is absolutely critical.

The Minnesota Timberwolves joined the ranks of the NBA in 1989 as an expansion team as part of a 4-team, 2-tier expansion. Along with the Orlando Magic, the Minnesota Timberwolves joined the NBA for the 1989-1990 season, while the Miami Heat and the Charlotte Hornets joined the NBA for the 1988-1989 season. As with most expansion teams, the Minnesota Timberwolves struggled during its early existence. During its first 7 years in the NBA, the Minnesota Timberwolves never won more than 29 games and never advanced to post-season play. The tides began to turn in favor of the Minnesota Timberwolves in 1995, when the franchise selected Kevin Garnett with its first pick in the 1995 NBA draft. Garnett and Tom Gugliotta helped the Minnesota Timberwolves reach the playoffs for the 1st time in franchise history following the 1996-1997 season. The Minnesota Timberwolves then recorded its first ever winning record in 1997-1998 with a 45-37 record. From 1996 through 2004, the Minnesota Timberwolves advanced to playoffs each and every year, but for the 1st 7 of those playoff appearances, the Minnesota Timberwolves were eliminated in the 1st round. Following the 2003-2004 season, the Minnesota Timberwolves defeated the Denver Nuggets and Sacramento Kings to advance to the franchise’s first ever Western Conference Finals. But the dream of a trip to the NBA Championship Series ended with a heart-breaking 6-game series loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. The team has not advanced to the playoffs since that finals loss. During the summer of 2007, the Minnesota Timberwolves traded Kevin Garnett to the Boston Celtics for draft picks and numerous players, signaling the turn towards a youth movement.
