Trade deadline is today 2/21

16 posts in this topic

Are the Wolves going to make any deals? It would be nice to see them get something for Theo Ratliff's expiring contract and ship out Antoine Walker for something.

they were saying in the paper would be Walker and Green.

Neither of them are playing much so its time to move them.

why would you want to get rid of Theo?.....his exp. contract gives us more space in the off season to sign FA....

Only problem is we are 4-5 years from having any semblance of a team. The coach needs to go, the GM needs to go.

What free agent in their right mind would want to come here and play?

well maybe no free agent at this time would like to come but maybe when we get beasly and need to sign people to extensions we would at least have the cash........you can always land a FA that wants to be part of something good and in the next 5 years the wolves will have something good.......I hope.........

Lots of trades today.

From Marc Stein on ESPN:

The Cleveland Cavaliers appear to have beaten the NBA's annual trade buzzer to get LeBron James some of the fresh help he's been openly craving.

In a three-way, 11-player trade with Chicago and Seattle that has been submitted for league approval, NBA front-office sources say that Cleveland will come away with four new teammates for James, headlined by Ben Wallace from the Bulls and sharpshooter Wally Szczerbiak from the Sonics.

The league office was notified of the deal before Thursday's 3 p.m. ET trading deadline, sources said, and is currently reviewing the trade details as required for formal approval.

After Cleveland watched two longstanding trade targets land elsewhere -- Mike Bibby in Atlanta and Jason Kidd in Dallas -- sources say that the deal calls for the Cavaliers to receive Wallace, Szczerbiak, Seattle point guard Delonte West, Chicago's Joe Smith and a future second-round pick from the Bulls.

The Bulls, apparently abandoning their gamble on Wallace less than two seasons into the lucrative four-year deal they used to sign him away from Detroit, would get Cavaliers forward Drew Gooden and swingman Larry Hughes along with Cavs reserves Cedric Simmons and Shannon Brown.

The Sonics, shedding Szczerbiak in the name of additional payroll flexibility, come away with the expiring contracts of Cleveland's Ira Newble and Chicago's Adrian Griffin as well as Cavs veteran Donyell Marshall.

**********************************************

Chris Sheridan, ESPN:

The Hornets, Houston Rockets and Memphis Grizzlies finalized a multi-player swap that sends Mike James and Bonzi Wells to New Orleans, with Bobby Jackson, Adam Haluska and a second-round draft pick going to Houston.

**********************************************

And finally the one you (probably don't) care about:

From Jerry Zgoda, Star Tribune:

The Wolves are finalizing a deal that will send unhappy Gerald Green back home to Houston for 6-6 guard Kirk Snyder and a second-round draft pick.

Do the wolves have a nice pile of picks at their disposal? Other than the one we have to give to the Clips for Marco (good grief)...it sounds like we get a draft pick in each of these dealings...

This year we have our own 1st and 2nd round pick plus Miami 2nd round pick this year. I read this in the Strib a couple of days ago. If all the ping pong balls fall right the Wolves would have #2,#31, and #32.

We get Houston's 2nd round in 2010, Two #1's from Boston and I think we should send one of them to the Clippers to square up with the Marko trade and Miami's #1 somewhere down the road.

      Anyfish2 - thanks for the reports. I believe it was you who had written a little summary that included a rough estimation of when the LF river busts open and muddies the Rainy.    Can you (or anyone) comment on when that's looking likely to happen? anyone know when the river cleared the Frontier landing? I think you said that happening gives a 1-to-2 week notice on the LF breakup.

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
