NBA Offseason Team Needs:
1. Power Forward:
The Timberwolves made a trade-deadline move in acquiring Adreian Payne to help plug a massive hole at power forward. I can't see either he or Anthony Bennett being the long-term answer at power forward though. Luckily, the ping-pong balls bounced Minnesota's way, and the team should have this need addressed when it is time to select Kentucky's Karl-Anthony Towns. That is assuming the Timberwolves don't draft Jahlil Okafor instead, which if that is the case, they will likely look to deal Nikola Pekovic for a power forward.
2. Three-Point Shooter:
Finishing 25th in the NBA in three-point shooting, Minnesota must find a deep threat besides Kevin Martin to complement all the club's athletes and drivers on the wing. The Timberwolves should be able to find a cheap, Gary Neal-type sharpshooter in free agency to bring off their bench.
3. Shop Veterans:
Guys like Martin and Pekovic aren't a part of Minnesota's long-term future, so the Timberwolves should see if there are any suitors out there in hopes of getting some future cap flexibility, draft picks or young assets. Pekovic might be hard to trade since has three years left on his deal worth about $35.7 million. Ricky Rubio's name could come up in trade chatter, and though he's only 24 years old, the Timberwolves might be open to dealing him as well if the price is right.
