Trade Rumors/Cures that Ail Wolves

Recommended Posts

Scott M

Wolves are now .500. ESPN was talking about a Suns-Heat Finals.

Just wondering if anyone had any thoughts on trades or other cures to put Minny back in the driver's seat.

I like Kidd or Baron Davis if we could get rid of Spree or Cassell, even Kandi. The only attractive thing about those guys is their expiring or soon to expire contracts.

Teams are killing us with our soft perimeter defense. We can't stop anybody. Orlando beat us tonight even though Garnett went off for a 20-20. We need some young legs at the guard spot. A center, just a body in the middle would be nice. Anyone that's a little less of a stiff than Erv or Kandi.

Penny for your thoughts....

Im am personally very disapointed in this team.

It is still early though. And I still have faith that KG will get this thing together.

question??

at what point does it become a coaching problem? Im not saying that it is yet. I actually like flip a lot. There is a lot of talent on this team and it seams that management may be at fault. Maybe??

I keep hearing the name Jason Kidd--I would love to see them pull this off--but really doubt that it will happen!

I'd take Baron Davis over Kidd any day....but then again, both are veterans and don't know how much long they will be effective on the court.

We don't need another Sam Cassell to deal with.

I'm sorry Cap' but Baron Davis is another Cassell. Baron is injury prone and doesn't have much value in my opinion. What is with the Wolves picking up expired PG's? Brandon, guy that played for Portland goatee can't think of his name, and Cassell. They missed the boat when they let james "HOLLYWOOD" Robinson go! smile.gif

I also agree we need some younger legs. I could emagine the team if we could have gotten Le Bron James.

Has anyone else heard of a J. Kidd to the Wolves rumor? Not sure if it is legit. Let me know what you got. Sounds like he wants out of Jersey pretty bad. Can't say I blame him.

Rumors are all it is, the Wolves are still hurting from the sanctions from the Joe Smith debaucle, 5 years without a first round pick? No team can compete without making trades, for older players, it's a tough situation. I think this year we get our first 1st round pick, let's make it count.

Although I would like to see Kidd here, but who do we trade, Wally is the only one with trade value, can't trade one of the best shooters in the leauge away? That's why I don't think it will happen, not sure anything will happen, Sprewell and Cassel are not worth there salaries, therefore trade value is low and we wouldn't get the caliber player needed to make a trade. But who knows. Should be a fun game to watch tonight, LeBron and KG.

I don't know. I think if you get ANYTHING for Spree or Cassell you are ahead of the game. They are cancers and eliminating them for even a CBA guy would be OK with me. There is no doubt the attitude of these jerks is the problem with the Wolves. Flip got the shaft on this deal.

I do not disagree, N.J won't give up Kidd for Sprewell and Cassel, and I do agree that Cassel and Sprewell in particular are cancers and need to go, and we do need a point guard other than Hudson, (I like him less and less each time I watch), I hope they do something, I just hope it doesn't involve Wally.

T-Hud is more interested in a record deal and lookin' good in dreadlocks then he is dribbling between a double team and going in for a layup.

I don't think the wolves have anything worth trading around, especially after a lot of BIG trades happened today. I think the only team that wasn't involved with a trade today was our team.

SHOULD have dumped Cassell and Spree earlier in the year or even before the season started!

Just read that Gary Payton is no longer an Atlanta Hawk...that means he is a free agent!

HEY McHale- did you hear that......GARY PAYTON IS A FREE AGENT!!

There is no way Payton will come here. It's almost a given he's going to resign with Boston since that's where his family is.

Man, did the timberpups (yea, time to bring that out again) stink up the Target Center or what last night. Just plain horrible.

Yeah, I had the misfortune of being at the game last night, 2 field goals in the first 7 minutes of the 4th quarter, how pathetic is that. Garnett was awesome as usual, but Sprewell and Wally were ice cold in the 4th quarter. It was bad indeed,

I've seen just about all I can take of the wolves this year. They are pathetic!! Can't wait until after the season when they start choppin heads. We need to get some of these old geesers out of here and bring in some youth, speed, and mostly, players with brains.(Hudson mad.gif)

Can't believe they could go from great last year to getting beat at home to any slumping team that enters the Target center. frown.gif

      Got on a pretty decent bite this weekend.   Lots of quality eating size fish 14-18" mostly,  a few bigger ones.  Fish were in main basin steep drop-offs in 20-30 feet.  Crawlers and leeches were working.  Weather was beautiful all weekend.  Can't wait to come back up in August!

      We did okay in Frazer over the weekend. Some nice 15's and 16's and tons of the smaller walleyes. For some reason I usually catch the smaller ones clean, but I throat hooked a ton this weekend. Just couldn't feel their bites, so I'm guessing they had plenty of time to try to swallow the bait. 17-22 worked best for us with Lindy's and seemed leeches outperformed crawlers about 2-1

      Water is pretty high on Vermilion for this time of the year. We were up over the weekend and got another 2 1/2 inches of rain!

      After a long 13 days straight of work we got out and did a little fishing!  Felt AMAZING to get back out on the water.  We chased panfish Saturday evening and pretty much struck out and went Sunday with the old man and got into a big ol mess of panfish.  Buddy of mine opened up his jig company in Vergas, MN and it's called Panfish Pirates, check him out on facebook.  Hes got a soft plastic called the Kraken that I have never seen before and boy did the fish eat them up!  We didn't use any live bait during the 6 hour trip out fishing and we landed hundreds of gills and crappies.  We landed 6 gills that were 9.5" sadly we couldn't find any big crappies even though the girlfriend lost one at the boat that was over 13".  Fish were on the edges of the weeds either lilly pads or down in the cabbage.  This Kraken has 3 legs behind it and it has natural bouyance within the plastic and it allows the jig to be swam through the weeds slower which was key yesterday.  Dad was in the front of the boat and a few times he had to stop and put his rod down because his arm hurt from fighting the fish and a few times his finger tips were hurting from taking the fish off of his hook but regardless he had a blast fishing.  We used 6 mm jigs tipped with the Kraken pitching from 4-14 feet of water.  Few times we were vertical jigging and my big blue gill pictured below came vertical jigging in about 12 feet of water.  All the gills were returned safely and only 6-7 crappies were taken home for dad to have a fish fry.  Pike must have been starving because I had about 6 blue gills get attacked by pike at the boat as i was bringing them in!

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.
    • delcecchi
      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.
