Nazreon Reid was undrafted last year and in the shadows of playing in Minnesota, had a pretty decent rookie year. Yeah, I had to dig pretty deep to find a bright light on the Wolves. Reid played under 500 minutes last season, but was rather effective, averaging 19 points and 9 rebounds per 36 minutes played. That production would most definitely fall off if he were to play true starter minutes, but it’s evident that Reid is a good basketball player who should be given rotation chances this year. Minnesota will be a lottery team again. Russell, Towns, and now Edwards are all good players with high ceilings, but its as if there’s some sort of void in Minneapolis where success just can’t be achieved. Maybe this team should just move to Seattle. I’d be sad to see the Timberwolves go, but thirty years in the desert feels like reason enough to believe you’ll never reach the promised land.
