Timberwolves’ Rudy Gobert, Anthony Edwards, And Chris Finch Slated To Win Three Out Five NBA Awards
The Minnesota Timberwolves made one of the biggest moves of the summer when they landed Rudy Gobert Star in a blockbuster deal with Utah Jazz.
They now have a starting line-up of four stars: D’Angelo Russell, Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards, and Gobert.
Russell was named All-Star in 2019, Towns and Gobert each took their third trip to the All-Star game last season, and Edwards will probably be an All-Star soon.
The Timberwolves recently posted a photo of new Allteammates Gobert and Towns, which has gone viral on Twitter.
Both players seem in great shape as we approach the new season.
This past season, Towns averaged 24.6 points and 9.8 rebounds per game, while Gobert averaged 15.6 points, 14.7 rebounds,and 2.1 blocks per game.
They are perhaps the best frontcourt duo in the NBA.
Last year, the Timberwolves led 46-36 and defeated the Los Angeles Clippers in the play-in tournament.
As a result, they made the NBA playoffs for the first time since the 2018 season while they had Jimmy Butler on the roster.
During the preseason predictions, Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert is slated to win the Defensive Player of the Year Award at +425. Gobert has won the award three times in his career. If he can win another DPOY award, it will be his fourth, and he will join Dikembe Mutombo and Ben Wallace as the only players to win that award four times. The Timberwolves head Chris Finch is slated at +1000 to win Coach of the Year. Finally, guard Anthony Edwards is a +1000 to win the Most Improved Player of the Year, which was won by Grizzlies guard Ja Morant last season.
