Brendan Hedtke of Canis Hoopus joins the pod today to discuss the potential paths for the Minnesota Timberwolves to take this summer to become a respectable defense next season. What can Gersson Rosas add to this roster and what can Chris Finch adjust to make the Wolves’ defense good enough to make the playoffs? We discuss:

  • The Wolves history of being a below-average defensive team, specifically over the six seasons Karl-Anthony Towns has been on the roster
  • Where do the Wolves need to rank defensively to make the playoffs next season?
  • Should the Wolves consider adding a true rim-protecting center? What are the paths to doing that?
  • Why Jaden McDaniels’ best position may be small forward instead of power forward
