Wolves - Who's on the way out?

11 posts in this topic

The Wolves need to trim 3 from their roster by Monday. Who's next to be on their way out? Predicitions? Rumors? Looking at the roster, the only lock (in my opinion) to be gone is John Edwards. If you believe McHale, one or two of the players we got from the Heat won't be here in a week. But Antoine (if my sources are correct) can't be traded for 15 days. I keep hearing rumors that Telfair will be cut. I'm not a Telfair fan, but I can't see that with how thin they are at the point...unless there's something in the works to bring in another one.

Edwards, Doleac, Simien, and that last cut that I wish they didn't have to make: Chris Richard. Hopefully McHale could make one more move to get rid of a bad contract (Jaric, Walker, or Buckner), get a draft pick, and save a roster spot. But McHale has now made enough savvy moves to last for another 10 years, so I'm sure he'll go back to trading away draft picks and signing crappy veterans over the weekend.

I really like Chris Richard but you already have that type of player in Craig Smith. They way things are looking in the frontcourt, they will need Richard.

Maybe I'll be able to pick out that last cut after tomorrow. I'm going to their last home preseason game against Milwaukee. The roster could get turned on its head before Monday rolls around.

Walker can't be traded for 60 days unless it is a 1 for 1 trade. McHale is trying to find a taker for Jaric. I hate Walker. All he does is float around the 3 point line and chuck the ball when he gets it. I hope he goes quick.

Juwan Howard got bought out today. I guess the Wolves want to hold onto Doleac. I guess GLen Taylor is made of money. Make atheltes stick to their contract, we didn't owe Howard anything, why'd we buy him out?

i'm with ya on that. the one thing he can do is score in the low post. he kills guys down there, but it is such an afterthought with him. all he wants to do is stand outside and shoot that flat shot of his. he has on of the worst release points in the nba

Looks like the wolves added a player rather than getting rid of one. We traded for Beno Udrih from San antonio for a 2008 second round draft pick. What do you guys think of Beno I haven't seen him play much.

I don't know much about Beno. But on the surface, I'd say it's a good trade. Only giving up a 2nd round pick, which rarely pan out, especially when McHale is making the decision. One second round pick in 12 years has amounted to anything. So giving up essentially nothing for a player that can provide some minutes backing up the point is a good move.

Beno has played 3 years and has seen 10 to 14 minutes a game for the Spurs every year. So he has to have some ability if he's been seeing consistent minutes for a franchise like that. The one down side I see just looking at his stats is that his numbers haven't improved from his rookie year. I guess we'll find out what he can do with the Wolves when he doesn't have the big guns to rely on like he did in San Antonio.

Beno's career as a Timberwolf is over!!! Here's the details on the trade. Kind of a weird trade. But essentially, it allowed the Wolves to get some money for little risk.

The Wolves picked up a little cash in a bookkeeping move that helped San Antonio get under the salary cap. The Wolves traded a conditional second-round pick to the Spurs for money and guard Beno Udrih. The Wolves waived Udrih and the pick will be lost only if the Wolves finish with one of the four top records in the NBA this season.

I think it's a pretty safe bet that the Wolves will get that pick back...

So I have a question about Walker, do any of you think the wolves could be included in the Kobie trade, with the wolves being a 3rd team involved in the trade? Maybe use him for his salary to help offset some of Kobie's salary to whatever team ends up with him?

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.

      The walleye bite the past couple days has gone from Boom to  almost Bust! There have been a couple of huge May fly hatches the last couple of nights along with a large Rusty Crayfish molt that have been making catching walleyes a real challenge! We are still getting some fish but now have to earn every fish! Lindys with 1/2 crawler fished VERY slow in 18" to 30" depths has been my best presentation. Cliff

      Thanks guys!  We tried kayak fishing last year (around Labor Day I think) and the Rum was way too high.  We launched on CR 7 between Blue and Green lake and just ended up paddling the river.  Is that a good stretch for smallies?
    • ANYFISH2
      wow, that is one dark walleye!

      And no reports make forums no good. Participation is what makes this place great.   Do not discourage that!

      Decided to fish Big Detroit saturday with a buddy.  Had bites but my 24 v 75#  trolling motor couldn't keep me in place so that sucked.  When we left the access to go fishing I asked the young man how late they were open till so I could make it back in time to get washed since I was going to fish a different lake on Sunday morning with the nephews.  I will be here till 5:30!  Sounds good see you before 5!  Fishing sucked, Wind BLEW, RAIN SUCKED!  So we packed up at 4:30 drove to access get there around 4:40 and they are gone!  Hot on my heels is a local fishing guide and he wasn't happy also because he had the same game plan.  Was told that there would be one at Melissa till 5 pm religiously.  Got there by 4:55 and they were gone from that lake too.  I honestly don't feel comfortable enough to do a safe job washing since I don't have a pressure washer and I really don't want to spread the Zebra Mussels from lake to lake and I know it was only a few hours 5-6 but honestly whats the point of AIS being there if they don't stay till the house they are supposed to be?  There was an easy half dozen boat trailers still at the access so it wasn't like we were the only two left at the access.

      Had some fun Saturday morning crashing through the lily pads on a small metro lake.  2 fish over 5 lbs and every fish absolutely choked the bait.  All I want to do is throw top water now, haha.  Wish I had longer arms or a partner in the boat for a decent photo.
