Wolves Trade James for Rockets' Howard

14 posts in this topic

No more Mike James as a T-wolf. The guy is megaoverpaid as is Howard, but at least the T wolves can create some room to give Foye more minutes and get some size, as well as getting Howard off the books a year earlier than James would be. It's sad that some trade assets have more value in today's NBA by sheer virtue of their contracts expiring. I mean, James was signed last summer and now we're happy to trade him for someone whose contract expires earlier. Don't get the idea that the wolves traded him for that reason; they've coveted Howard for a while, but signing a guy to dump him in a year doesn't make any sense to me but does anything McHale does make sense?

It's a decent trade. James did nothing for us last year. Juwan will help on the boards next year. Like you said he is off the books a year earlier but not till after the 08/09 season. He has a player option for that year which I'm sure he will pick up. Decent trade. We still have six guards. Maybe we could move one more?

Troy Hudson. Overpaid, inconsistant, and injury-prone.

I didn't even know Hudson was still on the team.

This is a good deal....granted Juwan is not what he used to be it still drops a guard off the roster gives KG and actual legitimate big man presence to help down low......big roster improvement IMO even though it would have nicer to get him 3-5 years ago when his name first started coming up in rumors.......Drop another guard Jaric or Hudson or even Hassel and hopefully we get Brewer in the draft and we would have a nice little team with Foye-McCants-Brewer-KG-Howard.....with Smith and Blount on the bench with our left over guards......not overly ipressive but a start to an improvement!!

mchale says he isnt done yet too. ive heard a couple rumors. theres the 7th overall for zach randolph, which i dont want. and theres ricky davis and 7th overall to sacramento for artest and the 10th overall. that i would take in a heartbeat. and with the 10th overall there are still some good forwards that will be available. i doubt brewer will be but thorton from fsu or the C from wash. cant think of his name. we'd have a decent lineup then. foye, mccants, artest, k.g. blount i guess.

i am not sure on the Randolph trade depends on who is avail at 7th......not to high on the moody Artest...otherwise that trade sounds good...but Ron Artest is a pain and not sure if that would be good for the long run for our young guys!!

Randolph for the 7th would be horrible. The Artest trade I would do only if it involed Ricky. Personality wise they are not much different and Artest has a lot more game.

That statement scares me a bit.

I recall the interview with James on KFAN just prior to his signing and knew immediately the guy was a knob. Good riddence. This trade worked out well for both sides.

As for the upcoming draft - what about the G-Town center (name escapes me)? I never hear his name mentioned in the top 10 which kind of puzzles me. Is he not going pro this year?

      In my eyes anywhere on the Rum is great for smallies. So far this year everytime I have been out the levels have been great even after all the rain we had just had to wait a couple days and the water was great. I put in at the Anoka fair grounds and travel up river

      (Too much mercury may affect a child’s behavior and lead to learning problems later in life.) That would explain some of the backwoods people     All jokes aside I would limit it to one serving a month for being pregnant or breast feeding for Bass, Catfish, Trout, Walleye, northern like they say   "Young children (under 15 years old) and fetuses are more sensitive to mercury.

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.
