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.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
