The offseason for the Minnesota Timberwolves came and went without much noise at all. That might not be a bad thing as the franchise gets set to embark on its first full season with Chris Finch as head coach.

Offseason grades have arrived though for the Timberwolves and even though they didn't make any “bad moves,” the lack of action taken coming off another deflating season may cause some to worry in the Twin Cities.

Minnesota Timberwolves' final offseason grade: C

Things started out on a not-so-great note all the way back in the NBA Draft Lottery for the Timberwolves.

Because of the 2020 trade of Andrew Wiggins to the Golden State Warriors that landed Minnesota D'Angelo Russell, the first round pick in 2021 was on the line. If Minnesota's pick landed in the top three, they would've kept it. Anything outside of that, it went to the Warriors. And the ping pong ball odds were not in favor the Timberwolves as their selection landed at No. 7.

As a result, the Wolves were left with a grand total of zero draft selections. That's not exactly great news for a team coming off a 23-49 season.

Along with not having any draft picks, the Timberwolves were strapped to the salary cap pretty tight. Karl-Anthony Towns and D'Angelo Russell are both on big boy contracts and they had just resigned Malik Beasley to a lucrative extension last offseason. This left Minnesota out of the race for the most part in free agency.

The lone splash the Timberwolves made was acquiring Patrick Beverley who was technically a member of three teams in less than two days. The Los Angeles Clippers traded him to the Memphis Grizzlies who then sent him to Minnesota. That's unless you count the Ricky Rubio trade that landed them Taurean Prince.

Prince played just 29 games for the Cavaliers last season but he is a three-point threat when healthy and on the floor.

As for the bigger move of acquiring Beverley, it required Minnesota to part with Jarrett Culver and Juancho Hernangomez.

On one end, it needs to be recognized that Culver was a massive flop after being selected at No. 6 overall just two years ago in the 2019 NBA Draft. Hernangomez is a solid role player but was expendable. The Culver botched pick was a huge swing and a miss for Minnesota.

In this trade they landed Beverley. Minnesota's defense has been flat out atrocious for a couple of years now and while it will take more than just Beverley to turn the tides, he brings a bulldog mentality to that side of the floor and will hold other players accountable.

When glancing around, the Timberwolves genuinely have a solid core of Towns, Russell and 2020 No. 1 overall pick Anthony Edwards. That, along with Beasley and others should be more than enough offense in Minnesota. If they can stay healthy and continue to vibe, the Wolves could be sneaky as early as next year.

Beverley was a great addition for a team that desperately needs a makeover when it comes to the defensive side of the ball. It's a young Timberwolves roster so adding the veteran who makes his money by being a pest to the opposition will only help.

Minnesota didn't have any draft picks to work with and didn't do much of anything in free agency because their salary cap situation didn't allow for it. While these are valid reasonings for the quiet offseason, it still lowers the overall grade for the Wolves. Beverley is a great get but knowing that he is the spotlight move for the Timberwolves in their offseason, it leaves a lot to be desired.
