|When this was taken in June, Wolves fans couldn't have imagined Andrew Wiggins would play his first game for Minnesota. But thanks to LeBron, it appears he will.|
Two months ago, the Timberwolves were in a tough spot. Kevin Love had already made it clear he wanted out
of Minneapolis, and the most enticing available trade looked to be with Golden State, where the best player coming our way, guard Klay Thompson, would be hitting restricted free agency next summer and looking for a huge long-term contract.
Basketball considerations aside, Flip Saunders and company
couldn't have been reassured to hear Klay's dad, former University of Minnesota star Mychael Thompson, go on the radio in California and say he was "depressed" and "disappointed" about the rumors linking his son to the Timberwolves. Thompson, in fact, said he was "going to have to talk [Klay] down off the ledge" if he was traded to Minnesota.
