Williams is almost definitely going to be traded this offseason. Unfortunate, but not a huge loss since the Wolves have (arguably) the best PF in the NBA in Kevin Love and a very good backup in Dante Cunningham.

Really, the Wolves' only big roster weaknesses are a starting SG role-player (similar to OKC's Thabo Sefalosha or San Antonio's Danny Green) and a better backup C.

Pekovic/ Backup C (Chris Johnson maybe?)
Love/ Cunningham
Kirilenko/ Budinger
SG/ Shved (in the Manu/Harden super sub role)
Rubio/ Ridnour

... is actually a really good roster if it's healthy.


I wouldn't say D-Will is guarenteed to be traded, he is steadily improving and will be a very solid 6th/7th man next year. I also think we will keep Barea over Ridnour as he is a much better sparkplug off the bench. Next year or maybe even this year will also probably be AK's last year with the Wolves so we will need to find a new SF if we don't think Bud can start. Shabazz Muhammed or Otto Porter would be great fits.

Rubio
Shved
Rookie (Muhammed or Porter)
Love
Pek

Bud
D-Will
Barea
Cunningham

Followed the MNSU - Maverick football team this year during their playoff run and undefeated season.

Could just be because I'm a student here. Laughing


Same, but North Dakota State.

Tubby needs to be shown the door. I've never seen such an inept offense and an inability to solve a zone defense.
He's living off of his reputation at Kentucky and the game has passed him by.

Yup, [inappropriate/removed] embarassing. Lets just hope Tyus and Rashad commit to the U. Pray

It's not a 100% guarantee that Williams will be traded, but it's pretty close. Like I said, the Wolves already have Love (who will get 35+ mpg when healthy) and Cunningham (who will get the rest of the minutes). The only spot in the rotation would be at the SF (where Kirilenko and Budinger are already getting all of the minutes), and Williams IS NOT a SF.

Yep. All rumors right now point to Ridnour being traded by the trade deadline next week.

I'm an Iowa fan and it was difficult to watch. They made no adjustments against the zone. They continued to just swing it around the perimeter until there was under 10 on the shot clock and jacked up a contested jumper.

Wild game was AWESOME! tonight. Zucker scores his first NHL goal and the Wild battle back from being down 2-0 to win 3-2 behind a rookie net-minder who didn't know he was going to play until 5 minutes before the game.

Anything FCS and lower is one big group to me. Smile

However, we could more than hold our own versus many of the bottom tier BCS schools.

Updated the records in the 2nd post - I'll work on adding Gopher Men/Women's puck today.

Zucker brings speed and a quick release that we desperately needed.

Looks like the Wolves had a good first half against the 76ers.
