This is the fourth Minnesota Timberwolves player to show up on ESPN's #NBARank. Though, Malcolm Lee is the only Timberwolves player who played with the team last year (that isn't on the team this year) that has their 2012 rank.
Anyway, on to Stiemsma. Greg provides a HUGE upgrade over Darko Milicic, I don't think anyone would argue that...of course I'd take any center (not named Eddy Curry) over Darko.
Stiemsma brings rim protection to a team that basically had none, last season. He'll likely play 10-15 minutes a night (while Pek gets the majority of minutes at center; 30+ minutes a night). Rebounds, hustle, probably a basket...a couple points each night. He'll lead the team in blocks per game.
That's all for now, but theres plenty more to come! Stay tuned, thanks for reading HOWL and GO WOLVES!
