    On the Wolves' draft philosophy, Leandro Bolmaro, Jaden McDaniels

    The Minnesota Timberwolves came out of the 2020 NBA Draft with a pair of players who won't contribute much this season. But was that a savvy way to approach the draft? Ben Beecken deep-dives on Leandro Bolmaro and Jaden McDaniels as prospects. Plus, why the addition of Ed Davis makes a ton of sense for the Wolves.

    Breaking down the Wolves depth chart, unwinding the Jimmy Butler trade

    The Minnesota Timberwolves have an intriguing depth chart. How will Ryan Saunders divvy up minutes, and will there be enough ball to go around? Also, the Wolves still have one open roster spot. Will they bring back Jordan McLaughlin? Finally, it's time to look back and unwind the Jimmy Butler trade that went down just over two years ago.

    A busy Wolves weekend: Beasley, Hernangomez, Davis trade

    The Minnesota Timberwolves had a busy weekend in NBA free agency. They re-signed Malik Beasley and Juancho Hernangomez and traded away two players in exchange for veteran big man Ed Davis. Did the Wolves overpay to keep their own free agents? How did the deals line up with the rest of the FA deals, and what does the Wolves rotation look like now?

    Wolves pick Anthony Edwards, Ricky Rubio is back, and more...

    The Minnesota Timberwolves had an eventful draft night, to say the least. After taking Anthony Edwards at No. 1, the Wolves traded No. 17 for Ricky Rubio and a pair of first-rounders. Ben Beecken talks about the Edwards pick, Rubio's return, and the value the Wolves received back in trades, including taking Washington's Jaden McDaniels at No. 28.

Podcast

The show has definitely improved with Beecken as host. One technical note... the pre-recorded advertisements are much higher in volume than the general program, making them jarring and annoyingly loud when they come on. A compression filter across the whole show might help that, or a limiter. And in general the host mic is a little lower in volume than is ideal so bringing that up in volume would help as well. Overall, thanks for the consistent content output and all your efforts.

Great daily Timberwolves coverage

Ben does a very nice job breaking down all things Timberwolves. Well researched insight and an enjoyable way to get my fix of the hometown squad.

Balanced and Insightful

I have really come to enjoy this podcast; it is one of my all time favorite sports podcasts. I initially only downloaded periodically, but over time found myself downloading episodes more frequently until finally I realized I should just subscribe and get all of them. Unlike a lot of sports podcasts, there isn’t any ranting and raving. No whining when things aren’t going well and no talking as if things are fabulous because a couple positive things happen. Just good insightful discussion on why things are as they are, and where things are headed.
