I hate the Teague signing because the right vision for the Wolves is Towns as a top 2–3 player in the league, and burying him under veterans doesn’t seem like the right way to develop him (it’s not how any of the current top 5 players in the league were brought up). It’s very possible Towns is better than AD (the way AD accumulates all those defensive stats is the same reason he gets injured all the time, I like the way Towns plays more under control) but the Wolves are making the same mistake the Pels have by clogging up their star’s learning curve with all these short term solutions befitting a team chasing an 8 seed. Butler is a great fit with Towns but even Wiggins is questionable, and Teague is just 10 wasted usage points that should be going to Towns.
