When the Minnesota Timberwolves shake things up, there is no one better to talk through the changes with than Britt Robson of The Athletic. Before Britt wrote his offseason reaction column, the two of us discussed the big questions that have now presented themselves — and came down on different sides of the equation on just about every key topic.

- A dive into the various levels of optimism surrounding the Ricky Rubio acquisition and the inherent opportunity cost that comes with adding a player of Rubio’s status — on the floor and within the fanbase.
- What is the risk proposition of re-signing Malik Beasley — a talented player who has question marks and was signed to a rather expensive contract?
