On this week’s episode, Jonathan Tjarks of The Ringer joins to discuss his article on how possessing the No. 1 pick could alter the Timberwolves’ trajectory as a franchise. Dane and Tjarks parallel the Denver Nuggets’ recent growth led by Nikola Jokic and Jamal Murray to what could develop around Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell. The two also discussed the importance of Minnesota finding their own version of Paul Millsap and how that type of acquisition could catapult the team’s current rebuild.
If the Timberwolves truly are to become the next Denver Nuggets, how do they round out the roster to similarly empower KAT and DLo? What role does the No. 1 pick play in that roster construction? Anthony Edwards? LaMelo Ball? Trade the pick (either by trading back or completely out of the draft)?
