This time, Wolves' makeover seems to have purpose


All of these players should be in the league for a while, and depending what happens to Love when he opts out of his contract in 2015, it’s a group that could stay here and develop together.

It’s not uncommon for NBA teams to remake the roster, but it can’t be an annual tradition. Under David Kahn, there were too many transactions, though the team is more talented than when he took over.

Now, it seems like the moves being made have a purpose, adding young players throughout all five positions, giving the team some flexibility and stability.

Wouldn’t in be something if that Timberwolves jersey you bought for your kids one Christmas didn’t become obsolete by the next season?
