Towns is a good offensive piece. I never said he isn't a good player I said he isn't a winner. For the amount of money he and D Lo are being paid they just aren't getting it done.
If the team isn’t significantly better, it could be a very interesting trade deadline.

Even if they are doing ok, they really need to dump Prince for anything. He is worthless. I like Okogie but he's worthless as well. Same for Layman and Newell. Get anything you can.

Agree with everything except the last sentence. That seems to have been the Wolves M.O. for a long time now. Culminating in Thibs fanatical "get rid of everybody but Jimmy Butler! I don't care who I get for them!"

And they didn't get much in return. Even looking at the trade that sent Butler to Philly. Got a couple of decent players but looking at how they were used here and how quickly they were traded away? Gees. Same with most of the trades since Thibs was sent packing.

You certainly know that it's way easier to find Timberwolves trades that didn't work out then ones that did. The absolute worst was the ones made when they thought they had to trade someone away no matter what.

Nope would suggest that unless a player is a cancer on the team keep him. Unless they can get a deal of equal or better yet, more value. Then please make the trade.

Right now they have to try and convince Edwards, Towns and Russell that if the 3's aren't falling they need to take the ball to the hoop. The tough part will be convincing them that if they are fouled they'll at least get free throws out of it

Monday night's first 3 Quarters at least, told them otherwise.

I'm not sure why they don't give Nowell bigger run. He's a tough kid who is versatile.

It sucks, but this team is lottery bound yet again.

Just watch Ant, hope he continues to develop, and pray he wants to stay here.

No one else on this roster will be here if they are to ever get good. This roster sucks balls.

I see we are already at the "my Twitter was hacked" part of the season. This must mean we are only a week or so away from the first "players only" meeting.

per the Athletic:

Timberwolves star Karl-Anthony Towns apologized to Minnesota fans after practice Thursday in response to the liking of a tweet that said "#FreeKAT" within, saying his Twitter account got hacked while he was asleep.

"Sorry to the Wolves fans. I ain’t want to cause no hysteria or anything like that. But just know I’m very happy," Towns said. "I know we’re on a skid so it came at the worst possible time, that little hacking. I’m excited to hopefully build more years here, not just this year."

Earlier Thursday morning, screenshots circulated on the social media platform that appeared to show Towns, or someone from Towns' account, liking the tweet. Towns — who said only three people, including himself, have access to his account — has since changed the password.


Howl Wolves!!

If not for the Detroit lions the twolves would be the worst franchise in professionals sport. They are completely inept.

Timberwolves 46 Clippers 29 at the 8:09 mark of the 2nd Quarter. Wolves are shooting 56.7% Clippers 42.3. Free throws are 2 to 9 but still.

Enjoy it while you can. Those that would like to see them win at least. ;)

They got it up to 49-29 right after this before allowing the Clippers the next 12 points. End up 57-47 at half. Now down by five as they've been outscored 19-4 in the third quarter. That's nine minutes into the quarter. Four points.

I hope KAT’s Twitter doesn’t get hacked again tonight.
KAT is a good player and of course he want's out.

The shit he is surrounded by each and every year is quite astonishing.

Every time he touches the ball, it is an instant double team and no one on this roster can make the other team pay. He was just being honest.

This team is so weak physically, it's an embarrassment.

They can't shoot, are physically outmanned ever single night, and have a losing culture. Other than that, things are looking up. LMAO

at Memphis
at LA Lakers
at Golden State
at LA Clippers

3-9 is so, so, so wolves like.

Yeah KAT is a 25 year old man in his 7th season of basketball as a former #1 pick. While some of it may be poor team building he better look himself in the mirror. His disappearing act in the second half against Denver cost them the game.
It also doesn’t help that he complains and whines to the refs every time he thinks he’s fouled or when he fouls someone.

He hasn't said a thing in 3 straight games..........0-3

He got 11 shots tonight and put up 20 points. That was after getting doubled on every single play he got the ball. He has shit all around him.

Entire team disappears for long stretches of the game. Still lots of time to turn it around.....but damn....when the shots aren't dropping....this team stops playing defense too.

Shocking stat, almost frightening: Jayden McDaniels, who starts most all games as the person to play big next to Towns is averaging 4 points per game, and 4 rebounds per game.

And the real kick in the nuts...........he hasn't shot one free throw all year.

They have to trade for even a warm body, big. McDaniels is a stick man out there. He should be in G league.

Really he just like a tweet that said free KAT. His Twitter account didn’t get hacked that’s just an excuse everyone uses.

The Wolves are a black hole at the 4. It's beyond bad.

Up 16 with 7 minutes to go and a complete choke job. Just fucking pathetic.

Outscored by 19 in 7 minutes before the prayer. Why do all of our sports teams not only suck, but just choke and choke and choke? It's just surreal.

5 in row.

Vikings up 14 twice yesterday.......just fucking pathetic

Gophers leading the West and at home put up 7 points........just fucking pathetic.

Embrace the SUCK everyone! No state does it better.

You should try meditation or something. You aren't going to make it to Thanksgiving. We are only five and a half or so months awway from the Timberwolves' real season opener. You can look forward to that.

I watched most of the second half last night. When DLo start hitting 3's, unless it's in the last two minutes, it's always fools gold. We know the pattern. Late in the game, when the defense tightens up, he can't direct the offense, makes sloppy passes and dribbles late into the possession. A disaster souffle. DLo, KAT and Ant can get by on their individual skills early in games but the lack of ball movement kills them when it counts.
I honestly thought Rosas had assembled enough talent, depth and composure, with a higher caliber coach now in place, to achieve a 7th or 8th seed this year. Even without a real power forward. This team remains too fragile and too incomplete to handle any serious pressure. My outlook was obviously wrong.
At this point in time, the overriding concern is each season that goes by without the success on the court that builds fan interest, is a step in the wrong direction for keeping the team in this market.

Grizzlies rally, defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves in overtime​

Ja Morant couldn't recall a game with such twists and turns in the final minutes. After the Memphis Grizzlies won 125-118 in overtime Monday night over the Minnesota Timberwolves, his body was spent as he leaned back.

"I'm ready to go get in the bed, man," he told reporters.

Morant tried to end things with seven points in the final 56.3 seconds of regulation. His two free throws with 2.5 seconds left should've capped a win after the Grizzlies trailed by 16 points in the fourth quarter.

But Karl-Anthony Towns responded with a 39-foot bank shot at the buzzer to force overtime. The Timberwolves celebrated but the Grizzlies (6-4) had the final say when Brandon Clarke - who hadn't played non-garbage time minutes since Oct. 27 - made two late tip-in layups to seal the win..

The Grizzlies allowed the Timberwolves to go on a 30-10 run in the final 7:59 of the third quarter. It highlighted their worst defensive tendencies, including poor closeouts and slow rotations on shooters as Minnesota shot 6-for-8 on 3-pointers.

It was the exact opposite in the fourth where the Grizzlies held the Timberwolves to 31.8% shooting. Melton had two steals and Jackson added two blocks in the period, including one of D'Angelo Russell's potential game-winning layup that was initially ruled goaltending..

The Wolves need to get their permanent GM in place.

When that happens, the GM needs to trade away DLO and Towns. Build around Ant.

Blow this thing up.

Do anybody think Morey would be stupid enough to trade Simmons for DLo, McDaniels and two #1's?

I'd do that trade in two seconds.

Unload DLO's awful contract. McDaniels is a stick figure and offers little. Two first round picks mean little.

Anybody? Probably, but they would be in a distinct minority.

Besides, it's doubtful that Simmons would report to them or anybody else outside of the West Coast.
