4. @ Minnesota Timberwolves – Wednesday, January 7th, 9:30 ET (ESPN)
There has been a lot of drama with the Timberwolves this off-season involving Kevin Love and their deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. The deal, reportedly, has been accepted between the two sides to bring Love to Cleveland for Andrew Wiggins and Tristan Thompson.
We know what we are gonna get out of Love but what about Wiggins? Will Wiggins jump right into the NBA at a All-Star level or will it take a year or two to get comfortable with the NBA?
If Wiggins is playing at a high level by the time Phoenix meets up with them, it could be for an interesting match-up between two teams who may be fighting each other for a playoff spot by season’s end.
The Twolves also have the high flying rookie Zach LaVine who can give Gerald Green a run for his money in the dunk department. It will be interesting to see how fast paced the game will be Ricky Rubio and Goran Dragic running the offenses for both teams.
Oh, and in case you missed LaVine’s dunk contest this summer…. well, you’re welcome
