Wiggins, Rubio, Towns ranked in top 85 of NBA by ESPN


When is the last time three players on the Timberwolves were considered top 100 players in the NBA?

You'd need a metal detector to find a time that was the case because it's been so long that those players probably have metal plates in their hips and knees. That's a bit of a stretch, but, honestly... one would have to harken back to the days of Kevin Garnett, Sam Cassel and Latrell Sprewell in 2003-04.

ESPN's 2015 player rankings, in which every player in the NBA is ranked, is certainly putting the Wolves back in a respectable – or at least a hopeful – place.

The countdown has yet to reveal where Andrew Wiggins, Ricky Rubio and Karl-Anthony Towns are slotted in the rankings, but they're definitely rated in the top 85. As of 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Boston's Marcus Smart was the latest player ranked at 85.

But other than Minnesota's trio of unranked players, the rest fell outside of the top 100. From ESPN.

"133. Nikola Pekovic
154. Gorgui Dieng
156. Kevin Martin
187. Shabazz Muhammad
190. Kevin Garnett
226. Zach LaVine
253. Andre Miller
270. Tyus Jones
301. Nemanja Bjelica
368. Tayshaun Prince
372. Adreian Payne"
