Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
ESPN is in the midst of their third-annual #NBARank and for the next few weeks while they unveil all 500 players ranked, we'll be taking a look at where our Minnesota Timberwolves players land.
Alexey Shved checks in at #193 with an average score of 4.41. That's obviously a bit too high considering Alexey's tumultuous rookie campaign. He certainly found the rookie wall and face-planted on it. A longer schedule than he's used to coupled with asking him to play extended minutes against some of the greats in the League (and try to guard the likes of D-Wade, Kobe, Harden, etc.) took its toll on Shved.
He had a great first couple months of the season and assuming that the majority of the roster is healthy this season, the Wolves should be asking a bit less of him. However, with Budinger's injured knee, Alexey should see the majority of minutes behind Kevin Martin at shooting guard.
If Alexey can prove he can shoot the ball and be the primary ball-handler with Ricky Rubio off the floor, he'll find a lot more success and plenty of playing time this season.
