The Timberwolves took another significant step forward this past season by reaching the Western Conference finals. Minnesota finished with the third-best record in the Western Conference behind a 56-26 mark.

In his first four seasons, he has accumulated a 160-127 regular-season record. The Timberwolves have become a powerhouse in the Western Conference behind their young and veteran mixed team, which has put forth a strong core group.

Anthony Edwards is the guiding force while Karl-Anthony Towns and Rudy Gobert have provided stability in the frontcourt. Meanwhile, Mike Conley has been a stabilizing veteran piece in the backcourt. As well as that, Naz Reid has emerged as one of the best scorers off the bench.

The next order of business will likely be Gobert’s long-term future as he heads into his final year.

Beyond that, the Timberwolves have already secured Edwards, Towns, and Jaden McDaniels all through the next several seasons.

Minnesota is hoping to take the next step toward becoming a legitimate title contender behind their talented core group.
