The Timberwolves Matchups Against The Thunder Concern Me

The Sports Daily > Howlin’ T-Wolf The Timberwolves Matchups Against The Thunder Concern Me Dear Timberwolves fans, I know a couple of things about the Timberwolves that you may know as well.

The Timberwolves would have more monies committed to their big threes—Karl Anthony Towns, Jimmy Butler, and Andrew Wiggins—and less money for everyone else. Okay, but let’s pause for a sec—and rewind. It’s 2018, and...
