The Minnesota Timberwolves have struggled mightily defensively over the course of, well, forever. There's been few glimmers of defensive fortitude that didn’t involve Kevin Garnett.

Brendan breaks down the options and finds who is the (obvious) choice to start alongside the “Core Four” on the latest episode of the Bleav in Timberwolves Podcast. After a bunch of fun lineup talk, including Brendan’s “Length Lineup”, he goes on to break down the contracts signed by Jarred Vanderbilt and Jordan McLaughlin and why they will turn out to be team friendly deals rather quickly.
