On today’s pod, Jack Borman of Canis Hoopus joins the pod to chat about our Minnesota Timberwolves-related thoughts that have been triggered while watching these playoffs. We’re calling it “watching the playoffs through a Timberwolves lens.” And, in that, we discuss:
- The idea of this playoff role player-type of John Collins being on the Wolves next season
- Buy-low guys that could be acquired via trade this summer by the Wolves who are playing in these playoffs. Guys like Daniel Gafford of the Wizards
- The power forwards the Timberwolves pursued this offseason — like Derrick Jones Jr., Paul Millsap and JaMychal Green — having relatively small playoff impacts. How does this impact our view of the midlevel exception?
- The similarities in offensive structure between what Brooklyn has built to what the Timberwolves have on their roster — three strong isolation players and one shooter
