Timberwolves concerned about losing 1 veteran forward this offseason

There seems to be significant uncertainty regarding the Minnesota Timberwolves’ potential to repeat their most successful playoff run in twenty years with their entire roster next season.

The Timberwolves are “somely concerned,” according to Michael Scotto of HoopsHype, about losing veteran forward Kyle Anderson this offseason. After playing for Minnesota for the previous two seasons, Anderson, 30, is expected to be an unrestricted free agency.

Anderson, a valuable player off the bench for the Timberwolves in the Western Conference Finals, averaged 6.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 4.2 assists per game this season. Despite his numbers not being very impressive, Anderson was a valuable asset to Minnesota because of his 6-foot-9 height, strong defensive abilities, and ability to handle the ball as a primary playmaker of second units.

Although Anderson has earned a good contract this summer, the Timberwolves may not be able to provide it to him. They may need to use the remaining money they have to concentrate on other areas of the squad because they have already committed an absurd amount of long-term money to their frontcourt. In addition, there are worries that the new ownership group of the team would reduce wages, thus Minnesota might need to start getting ready to live without Slow-Mo.
