Already armed with one of the best young bigs in Kevin Garnett, the Timberwolves add one of the best defenders of the last 20 years in Marcus Camby, giving the team a scary defensive front line.
Camby never became the superstar some hoped he would be, mostly due to injuries, but that didn’t stop his impact when he was on the floor. He was the Defensive Player of the Year in 2007, and led the league in blocks four times. He was All-Defensive First team twice and grabbed double-digit rebounds for most of his career.
Camby and Garnett together would make it very difficult for teams to score in the paint and would give the Timberwolves a young front court to build around as they try to make a dent in the NBA.
