The news is out.
Q 1. Will the TWolves be better than their last season roster with:
the 1 Ricky Rubio (JJ Barea)
the 2 Kevin Martin (Chase Budinger)
the 3 Andrew Wiggins (Corey Brewer)
the 4 Glenn Robinson (Andrew Bennett)
the 5 Nikola Pekovic (Andrew Bennett stretch FC)
Q 2. WHAT can Wiggins bring to Minnesota from the playing style perspective?

Know this, head coach Flip Saunders knows how to coach. He's not a flop when it comes to coaching.
The Wolves have three ultra athletic wings on there team right now, Zach Lavine, Andrew Wiggins, and Shabazz Muhhammed (4 if you count Brewer who is also fairly athletic). Add that with an up and down point guard in Ricky Rubio who struggles to score but definitely know's how to pass and offensively this team is dangerous off the bat from at least a transition perspective.
They also have two good centers, Peckovic the more established and one of the more imposing figures in the league with Gorgui Deing as more of an up and coming Serge Ibaka type player. To end question 1, I'll say they will be a border line playoff team but in-experience will likely be there downfall.
q2: Wiggins will likely be a more defensive piece initially while he gets his legs underneath him offensively. My guess is most of his offensive points will be coming off the fast break and from lobs from Rubio.

They won't be better but I like this trade for them because it gives them a chance to rebuild their franchise around two players who were 1st overall picks. If they find the right coach Wiggins and Bennett can develop into some great players.
He can bring a lot of explosiveness and athleticism to the team. Rubio is one of the best passers in the league and with Wiggins they can develop a very fast paced and quick offense.

Well now they only have one below average defender in their starting frontcourt (assuming Dieng is the PF now)so they should be a better defensive team without Love and if Wiggins starts right away. But their offense will take a dive unless Pek turns into the Al Jefferson of the West. I say they win 32 games this year so they will be worse overall.

You really think they're better with two unporven young players than with an elite 25/10 guy? That's just foolish.

You might want to obviously read each of the specifications and sustain them to prevent any inconvenience after you are servicing your policy.The second issue, it's best to hold very important is definitely the terms and circumstances that govern each policy.

It's not like they could be much worse. They still likely won't make the playoffs, though.

They also added Mo Williams
I think they will be just as good, or slightly better.
