The Minnesota Timberwolves held a workout Wednesday for free agents hoping to get signed less than a month before training camp. The players aiming to be part of the Timberwolves Roster were mostly familiar names like Trey Burke, Isaiah Canaan, Anthony Morrow, Alan Anderson, and Thomas Robinson. Joining them were Matt Janning, Perry Jones, and Jerome Randle.

In the 2016-17 season, Burke played for the Washington Wizards, while Canaan suited up for the Chicago Bulls. Morrow began last season with the Oklahoma City Thunder but got traded to the Bulls back in February. Anderson and Robinson were both in Los Angeles. Anderson was with the Clippers and Robinson was a part of the Lakers.

Meanwhile, Janning and Randle went undrafted in 2010. Jones, on the other hand, got selected with the 28th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. As of the moment, it is uncertain if any of these players will make it to the Timberwolves roster. Whoever succeeds, the best Minnesota could give him is a deal worth the minimum salary.

Targeted players

Aside from the ones who worked out earlier this week, other options for the Timberwolves are the free agents they are reportedly targeting. These are Tony Allen, Dante Cunningham, and Shabazz Muhammad. All three are quality players, though ESPN suggested that it is unlikely for Muhammad to return to Minnesota. The 24-year-old is seeking for a lucrative multi-year deal, something the organization cannot grant him at this point. If that is the case, then Allen and Cunningham are the only free agent choices for the Timberwolves.

Jamal Crawford confident in Wolves

In a recent podcast interview, one of the newest members of the Timberwolves, Jamal Crawford, had a bold prediction for his squad. Crawford is confident that Minnesota will be in the top four in the Western Conference. He believes they have the players to make it happen and just need to work on their chemistry.

The last time Minnesota reached the top four in the West was during the 2003-04 season. In that year, the Timberwolves were led by Kevin Garnett. They finished first in the conference with a 58-24 record and Garnett was named the MVP of the season. The team made it as far as the Western Conference Finals where they met Shaquille O'Neal, Kobe Bryant, and the Los Angeles Lakers. The Timberwolves gave the Lakers a tough time. Unfortunately, they got eliminated in six games, and the Lakers advanced to the Finals.
