NBA Draft Sleeper Profile: Jaylen Nowell

Jaylen Nowell caught me by surprise. I got around to scouting Washington pretty early in the process but all the hype was around Thybulle. I was barely paying attention to Nowell because he wasn’t on many people’s boards but I couldn’t help to notice his talent. Others started taking notice around that time as well and he continued to get better as the season went on. I did not know where he would land on my board when I sat down to put it together but I only had a slight hesitation about putting him at 12. 

Minnesota Timberwolves – Season Preview 

Jimmy Butler Trade – After it was made clear that the Bulls were looking to deal Jimmy Butler the Wolves immediately emerged as a major suitor. They finally pulled the trigger on a deal that was good for both sides and reunited Jimmy with Tom Thibodeau. Butler brings his playoff experience as well as his toughness to this Wolves team and immensely boosts their profile in the gauntlet that will be the West this year.
