Minnesota is sitting right at $112M in salary after the Cole Aldrich waiver. The Timberwolves will incur a $2M cap hit and will have the choice to stretch the amount owed over three years. Stretching the money would save the Timberwolves $1.37M this year but with the possibility of having 3 max contracts in 2019, Minnesota might be best to take the cap hit in one season.

As far as ESPN's draft analytics model is concerned, there was plenty of value to be found in the second round last night. In addition to these, the Mavericks picked up two talented players very late in Ray Spalding (Analytics Rank: 24) and Kostas Antetokounmpo (30).

T-Wolves' Brunson resigns amid allegations

Timberwolves assistant coach Rick Brunson, the father of NBA draft prospect Jalen Brunson, has resigned amid accusations of inappropriate conduct.

Bobby Marks ESPN 

Jamal Crawford opting out of his $4.5M contract for 2018-19 now has Minnesota with $117M in salary (including the OKC 1st), $6M below the luxury tax. The Timberwolves can create $4.9M in additional flexibility if they waive Cole Aldrich by June 30. The center has $2.05M in salary protection. Crawford has non-bird rights and Minnesota is restricted to $5.19M in the first year they can offer the guard. Minnesota does have the $8.6M midlevel and $3.4M biannual exception available but using more than $5.29M of the midlevel would hard cap the team.
