Areas of Strength:
Not many. Jefferson and Love form a serviceable frontline due, and Flynn had solid rookie year at point guard. Brewer had breakout season coming back from injury.
Name it. Wolves are among very worst in the league at both ends of the floor. Roster woefully short of solid NBA players.
Two Stats That Matter:
2 -- Wins when scoring less 100 last season against 44 losses
1,094 -- Points by Flynn, third-most for rookie in franchise history
The way to go:
Bringing over Ricky Rubio from Spain is Job 1. The ping-pong balls didn't do Minnesota any favors, as the league's second-worst team is picking fourth. But that's where Sacramento selected Tyreke Evans, the reigning Rookie of the Year. Second-year general manager also has the 16th and 23rd picks. Don't expect a three-point guard repeat this time out. Wolves need an explosive wing to pick up scoring slack. A defensive-minded big, along with added depth at every spot is important. Kahn wants to bring back Milicic. Love or Jefferson could be part of blockbuster deal.
