Dane Moore NBA Podcast: The Wolves and Logic + Observations From Hawks-Wolves

Photo by Hannah Foslien/ Another blowout Minnesota Timberwolves against the Atlanta Hawks got me thinking about how crazy it is that Tom Thibodeau is having more success with the New York Knicks than the Wolves are having without him, despite New York having a far cheaper payroll. So on today’s pod, we get into how the Wolves are just not living up to what their payroll suggests they should be. (Did you know that if you deleted Karl-Anthony Towns, Juancho Hernangomez and Ricky Rubio from the Timberwolves books that the Wolves would still be paying the rest of their...

NBA Rumors: Karl-Anthony Towns Could Be Traded To Hawks For Package Centered On John Collins

As they continue to struggle in the 2020-21 NBA season, rumors have started to swirl around All-Star center Karl-Anthony Towns and his future with the Minnesota Timberwolves. If they fail to return to the winning column and suffer another huge disappointment, there’s a strong possibility that Towns would follow in the footsteps of other superstars and find his way out of Minnesota. The Timberwolves haven’t shown any single indication that they are planning to part ways with their franchise player but if he demands a trade, they would be left with no choice but to listen to offers for him...

Minnesota Timberwolves (3-10) host the Atlanta Hawks (7-7)7:00 CST After the disastrous loss against the Orlando Magic, the Wolves have the opportunity to give themselves a sliver of breathing room if they can beat the Atlanta Hawks. It is no longer a surprise that the Wolves are a terrible basketball team without Karl-Anthony Towns, the question now remains of how bad of a team are they and to what end that is a reflection of the coaching staff, players, or roster construction. The blame game has begun as the team has a sole...

Minnesota Timberwolves: 3 things the Wolves actually do well

The Minnesota Timberwolves entered the 2020-21 NBA season with mild expectations for success. The building blocks were in place. Karl-Anthony Towns was healthy and motivated to play alongside his friend and fellow All-Star D’Angelo Russell.

The Importance of Karl-Anthony Towns Has Never Been More Evident

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports An early-season slump without their star center has reinforced Towns’ value to the Timberwolves. I miss watching Karl-Anthony Towns play basketball and you probably do, too. Towns has played all of 39 games between this and last season because of suspension, injury or illness. To be clear, there is no faulting Towns for missing games for injury or illness. This is just to say the NBA is a better place when Towns is on the floor. The fact Towns is playing for the Minnesota Timberwolves at all this season is truly remarkable. Going back...

NBA Rumors: Warriors Could Get Karl-Anthony Towns For Three Players & Two First-Rounders

Despite losing Klay Thompson for the entire 2020-21 season, the Golden State Warriors are very much in the thick of things in the Western Conference, where they currently ranked seventh with an 8-7 record. The Minnesota Timberwolves, meanwhile, have continued to struggle despite the presence of superstar center Karl-Anthony Towns, and have only won three out of their 13 games. Both teams, however, could help address each others’ weaknesses by swinging a deal ahead of the March 25 deadline, according to a newly published list of trade ideas. As explained on Friday by Bleacher Report’s...
