A tip of the hat to Hoops Hype for this interesting idea. Who are the tallest and shortest players to play for every NBA team?

The tallest guy to put on a Wolves uniform was Minnesota native and former Gopher Randy Breuer at 7'3''. He played for the Wolves from 1989-1992, averaging 6.9 points and 4.8 rebounds. Breuer grew up along the Mississippi River in Lake City, Minnesota.

The shortest guy in Wolves history is Spud Webb at 5'6''. He had a cup of coffee – 26 games – with Minnesota during the 1995-96 season.

Webb is the third shortest player in NBA history. Muggsy Bogues at 5'3'' and Earl Boykins at 5'5'' are the two shortest in league history.
