Kahn Strikes Again: Darko To Timberwolves, Cardinal To Knicks In The Works

Ever since his 2009 NBA Draft antics, Minnesota Timberwolves GM David Kahn has become the subject of whimsical mockery among the media. With that in mind, it only makes sense that Kahn would become the latest to take a stab at developing Darko Milicic.

According to ESPN.com’s Chad Ford, Minnesota has agreed in principle to send Brian Cardinal to the New York Knicks in exchange for Milicic.

The two sides have yet to formally complete the trade and have a trade call scheduled for Thursday morning. Assuming nothing changes overnight, the deal should be officially consummated in the morning.

The trade will save the Knicks $1.8 million and give the Wolves a center to audition for the rest of the season. Milicic has been mired at the end of Mike D’Antoni’s bench for months and has publicly said he’s likely to return to Europe to play basketball when his contract expires this summer.

Apparently, nothing excites Kahn more than a European that wants nothing more than to play basketball in Europe.
