28. Minnesota Timberwolves

With the Minnesota Timberwolves squarely out of the playoff picture in the Western Conference at this point in the season, the biggest story for this franchise this week happened to be that Alex Rodriguez will purchase a stake in the team’s new ownership.

Followed up by the fact that the team’s talented rookie, Anthony Edwards, didn’t even know who Rodriguez was before the transaction.

The Timberwolves, heading into the offseason, have some interesting decisions that they need to make. I am not sure how the DNA of this roster is going to look at the start of next season, but there’s no question that this team can’t remain as it was this season.

There has to be some sort of improvement end it might have to come externally.
