The Minnesota Timberwolves want to add a shooting guard with size to play alongside Ricky Rubio.
“Just because we’re so small there, outside of [Alexey] Shved,” Flip Saunders said. “The other guys — [J.J.] Barea and Luke [Ridnour] — are 6-foot players who have to guard Kobe Bryant and those guys. So what you want is a ‘2’ guard [shooting guard] who has size and can shoot the ball.”
To that end, the Timberwolves worked out Tim Hardaway Jr., Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Allen Crabbe and Ricky Ledo on Thursday.
Saunders will likely bring C.J. McCollum, Shabazz Muhammad, Jamaal Franklin and others to Minnesota for workouts as the draft approaches.
