Oppo Research:

The last time the Pistons played visitor to the Timberwolves, they were both jockeying for lottery position. The Timberwolves led by as many as 16 points, but came back for the key lottery victory. The Pistons, meanwhile, fell to a 6th spot tie in the Eastern Conference that parlayed into a No. 7 overall pick, Greg Monroe

The Timberwolves took Wesley Johnson with their top-5 pick, traded for Michael Beasley from the Heat, essentially traded Ramon Sessions for Luke Ridnour, re-signed DARKO, signed another European big man and traded Al Jefferson to Utah for a bag of salt (not necessarily in that order, I don't think). In sum, Minnesota didn't really get any better during the offseason. They still have Bill Laimbeer, though.
