The offseason just keeps getting worse for the Timberwolves

That basically sums up what it has been like to be a fan of the Timberwolves at all times, but especially this offseason. The Wolves went from having one of their best seasons in a decade and a half to turmoil and anarchy. I know they are only reports, and reports could be false, but they are overwhelming. When you hear that Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns, Jamal Crawford, Tyus Jones and now Jimmy Butler aren’t happy with one thing or another you start to assume the worst. Supposedly Wiggins is pissed that he’s the third option (more like 5th), Towns doesn’t like the organization, Butler is fed-up with Towns (and probably Wiggins for that matter), Tyus didn’t like the his lack of playing time off the bench, and Crawford just wanted to get the hell out of there as fast as he could. That sounds like an organizational problem. I’m sure most people will blame Thibs, and maybe rightfully so, but getting rid of him won’t solve this kind of problem. There seems to be a complete distrust of the entire organization from top to bottom. I don’t know what the right solution is. Maybe you trade Butler if you really believe he wants to team up with Kyrie Irving in the Eastern Conference next season. You could dangle Towns in a trade and net just about anyone in the league outside of LeBron, Curry, Durant and maybe James Harden. Wiggins won’t net much in a straight up trade, but it could be best to get rid of him and his max contract. Maybe you blow it all up and go into another 14 year rebuild. You could get rid if Thibs and all of this could blow over, or most likely Glen Taylor just needs to sit down and look everyone in the eye and magically fix everything, I really don’t know. What I do know is that the Wolves should be looking to add a few bench pieces to bolster their standing in the stacked Western Conference, instead they’re bickering and fighting and looking for the exit. Next season should be so much fun.
