NBA Minnesota Timberwolves Anthony Edwards (David Berding-USA TODAY Sports) /

1. Minnesota Timberwolves

This is an easy one. I don’t think there’s much arguing against this fact – the Minnesota Timberwolves are in the best situation out of any team that is sitting at the bottom of the NBA standings at the moment. Even though this team is having another season to forget, this is one of the most talented young rosters in the league.

With Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell, and Anthony Edwards, it’s actually a riddle why this team sits with less than 10 games remaining in the regular season with the third-worst record in the NBA. Nevertheless, if this team does well in adding another top 3 or 4 pick, it’ll be hard not to feel good about where this team is heading into next season.

I’m not sure what it is for the Wolves, but they have talent. That’s not the issue and hasn’t been the issue in the recent past. Something has to click, and I’m not sure if that onus falls on management or head-coaching. Something has to change, though.
