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?

      I would suggest concentrating on panfish this spring from a boat or shore. Your chances of success vs trout would be astronomical! These are hard earned life experiences. Learn how to fly cast. period. Trying to learn fly fishing on  trout stream will be a lesson in frustration as you will be tangled in more trees than the stream. Fly fishing from a boat or shore allows you to figure out all of the nuances of the sport before moving on to a tree canopy!     Good luck on your journey!

      Wow that stinks. I see Springsteel put up a pic in fb of 27 lb pike caught out there yesterday somewhere. Are big suckers easy to find in town right now?

      I have also worried about the quality of the bite...and the absence of perch. At least on the northwest side, anyways, where we almost never mark small perch anymore.  In years past, the best indicator of a soon-to-be big red mark on the Vex was that the small perch vacated the area.  I did see TONS of perch down on the south side this year, but I don't know how the numbers there compared to years past, either.   But yeah, the bite has been excellent for, what, three years now?  We're also catching a decent mix of fish (though of course most are from the 2013 year class).  The only good thing to mention, at least in my experience, is that the fish do look very healthy and fat, very unlike the fish during the "boom years" in the mid-2000's when everything you'd catch would be a skinny 26 incher.

      Bite has been non existent for us this weekend for pike...we fished out of springsteel yesterday one flag. We are out of warroad and no flags yet... We tried as shallow as 4ft, out in 11ft now.
