Over the last few years, the Minnesota Timberwolves have been a big team, literally.
With the addition of Rudy Gobert and the reliance on Karl-Anthony Towns, the T-Wolves have become one of the largest squads in the NBA.
And now one of their star players is adding to his overall height.
According to Jon Krawczynski, via NBACentral, big man Jaden McDaniels is now listed as 6-foot-11.
Just last season, McDaniels was 6-foot-9.
This growth could be very good for both McDaniels and the Timberwolves.

McDaniels has become an important part of the Timberwolves over his first three years with the team.
He has been steadily gaining more minutes with Minnesota and has been producing more too.
In 2022-23, McDaniels averaged 12.1 points, up from 9.1 the year before and 6.8 in his rookie season.
But things ended poorly for McDaniels, as he suffered a fracture in his right hand after he punched a wall during a game.
That unfortunate burst of emotion happened right before the playoffs started and the Timberwolves weren’t able to find any success in the postseason.
Therefore, a lot is riding on them next season.
Last season was supposed to be a banner one for the team since they had Gobert on the roster.
Instead, they ended 2022-23 as the eighth team in their conference.
In order to have much more success this year, they will need everyone on the team to play well together and also perform to the best of their abilities.
Now that McDaniels is two inches taller, he has two extra inches of power.
And perhaps that can make a big difference on the court.NEXT: Anthony Edwards Gets Honest On His Style Of Leadership
