Wolves Offering Pek and Derrick Williams for Pau? (with poll!)

BREAKING NEWS: NIC BATUM TORPEDOS BLAZERS!!!!

According to Dwight Jaynes, Nic Batum has said that he doesn't want anything to do with the Blazers, and wants to play for the Wolves (and who can blame him?) Blazers Edge has more, and although it would seem that a sign and trade will still be necessary, this has to severely reduce any leverage the Blazers may have had in negotiations with Minnesota.

Some Thoughts on Glen Taylor's Recent Comments

As much as Glen Taylor's ownership of the Wolves might periodically frustrate the fans, there is a lot to be said for him buying and keeping the team in Minnesota. It's easy to read the recent...

Jae Crowder Wants to Be a Shooting Guard?

Canis Hoopus Favorite Prospect Jae Crowder says he is giong to lose 20 of his 245 pounds and become a shooting guard. This is an interesting development for several reasons, one of which is that Chad Ford has about a dozen SGs rated higher than Crowder, as opposed to seven SFs rated as better players (for what it's worth). So perhaps his relative value in this draft may be even lower as an SG than as an SF? Do you think he can be an effective SG in the NBA, and, more importantly, for the Wolves? Does the position switch make him more or less attractive to the Wolves?

An Awesome Reaction to the Lynx Draft Pick

Julie Wojta of UW-Green Bay was selected by the Minnesota Lynx with the 18th pick in yesterday's WNBA draft. This is the reaction from her teammates when her name was called, as well as interviews, etc.

The Many Moves of David Kahn

I don't think I've seen this posted here before, and I'm sure there are errors and omissions, but HoopsHype has tracked all the activity of all the GMs and POBOs in the league, including Today's Sports Hero David Kahn. Obviously the Adelman signing and Rubio pick stand out as highlights. But look at all the players shipped in and out who could help the team now, or in the future. If there's any indication that the guy has no clue as to how to build a team, this has to be Exhibit A.

If there was a problem . . .

Bucks Making Luc and Livingston Available?

A tweet from the Bucks beat writer says that Prince Luc and Shaun Livingston could be the next players traded by Milwaukee. I would like the see the Wolves go after them, but the Bucks roster is so deep that I can't see what Wolves players might be of interest to Milwaukee. Any thoughts?

Make a New Nickname for Rubio and Barea

You Can Stop Feeling Sorry For Blazers Fans

Or at least, the ones who seem to get such a kick out of herfderfTimberwolves! Whether it's Kahn, or KLove's All Star appearance vs. LMA's otherworldiness, or Rubio, or Adelman, or Roy for Foye, it seems that for some reason when the black clouds regroup to their rightful place over "Rip City," the natural reaction by a significant portion of the Portland fan base is to look to the east, and denigrate the Minnesota Timberwolves. We've warned them before about spitting in the faces of the basketball gods, but some just don't seem to learn . . .

A good deal on ESPN Insider

Our good friends at ESPN have a 50% off special on their Insider membership. $1.66 per month (about a nickel a day) includes the online membership and magazine. Hollinger's profile of the NBA players is worth that alone, but a 12-month subscription should take you through this shortened NBA season, to the draft, over the summer, and well into next year's full season. Love or hate 'em, nobody has more coverage of the NBA than ESPN. And after you view the comments section at ESPN, you'll appreciate what we have at Canis Hoopus even more.
