So what's takin so effing long!?!?!???

Paul Davis signed for 2 years?

Allegedly, Paul Davis signed with BC Khimki on Monday. I don't mean to suggest this is false, but has any one else found any other evidence?

Redefining NBA Basketball Positions

This graph carries no meaning for me as I cannot find "clutch", "smile", or "handshake firmness" anywhere.

The D-League is there for a reason

I could think of a few players on the current Wolves roster that could learn a thing or three from a trip to the Developmental league.

The Shooting Terrain of the NBA: Mapping Field Goal Percentage

3

Visualisation tools are part of my research area so for me, this is a really interesting synthesis. I'd like to see how various members of the Wolves 'map' using a similar visualisation. At any rate, I enjoyed the read. Hopefully you will as well.

Darrell Arthur appears to be out for the year

37

They seem pretty thin at the forward position. I have to believe that there would be a way to even out both rosters. Mayo seems like he would fit Adelman's description of a ball handling guard and we have forwards to spare!! Considering at one time the Grizzlies were considering Josh McRoberts for Mayo, perhaps they would be willing to take a shot at Randolph...and another piece?

It appears to be official. I'll post more links here as (if) I find them.

nice bits about DWilliams and Rubio for those interested.

In the words of Gob, "C'mon!!" It comes as a bit of a surprise, but this is what a commitment to winning (or at minimum, change in an attempt to get better) can mean for a franchise. If you have isolated a weakness you address it proactively. (sigh) Another great mind off the market.

Valanciunas to pull out of draft due to buyout?

12

that's a bummer. This could potentially affect the stock of Kanter and Biyombo.

Ettore Messina to coach on Lakers' staff

I only post the link because I thought this was one of the coaches SnP had been advocating/pining for in the past. I found it interesting that Mike Brown has such a strong connection. It's saddening when other teams in the association consistently look to make their teams better. It brings me hope that the Timberwolves might learn from them....some day...

Valanciunas' Buyout To Be Raised To At Least $3M

13

That seems shaddy to me. "Oh, you want to leave? Well, now your buyout is $3M. Still want to leave? Now it's $4M. Any comments? You want to go to $5M? Just try me." At any rate, I just posted this because I'm wondering if anyone thinks he lasts until our pick at #20 with what appears to be a minimum of a 3 year wait. I'm thinking it's possible. If so, I'm thinking you gotta take him...assuming you still own the pick that is.

Regarding recent rumors about Love and effing Kelvin Sampson... From article: 3) Don't doubt that someone may have told CBSSports.com that Kurt Rambis is in trouble in Minnesota. But if that's so, that stinks. For two years, the Wolves have done nothing but turn over their roster, bringing in younger and younger players, and asking Rambis and his staff to teach and live with all those Ls on their ledger. You don't win with young in this league; you win with talented veterans, and other than Kevin Love, the Wolves barely have enough talent to compete on a nightly basis. (Michael Beasley can score, no doubt, but his defense, like Love's, is, uh, a work in progress.) Lottery picks Jonny Flynn and Wes Johnson have been slowed by injuries, and the big man combo of Darko Milicic and Nikola Pekovic has been decidedly meh. "This team plays hard," Rambis said last week, "and they have moments where they play extremely well together at both ends of the floor. But they haven't connected it for 48 minutes. They allow teams to get on runs. Clearly we lack the composure and experience and savvy, and maybe in some extent, personnel, to finish out games when things are tight. You know, that veteran, calming influence." A team source insisted this weekend that it would take a major collapse down the stretch for management to even consider replacing Rambis, who got a four-year contract with the Wolves for that very reason -- to take a lot of losses while developing the team's young talent, including still-in-Europe Ricky Rubio. (The Wolves can buy out Rubio's contract in Spain next season for $500,000, with Rubio paying the remainder, and Minnesota still expects Rubio will come over next year, regardless of whether there's a lockout.) The Wolves have already won more games this season than last, with a month left in the season. Love, who clashed with Rambis last season, has seen that playing on a really bad team won't keep him from individual accolades like making the U.S. World Championship team last year and the All-Star team this year -- and as such, the source claims, Love isn't going anywhere when and if he becomes a free agent.

Looks as if Perry Jones decision to enter the draft has been made for him

i'm not sure if there was any doubt before, but there shouldn't be anymore.

(Gary) Payton said he's... interested in coaching fellow point guards in the league.

Maybe GP in Flynn's ear would be a good thing? Probably wouldn't hurt Ridnour either.

Chris Kaman?

Apparently, Chris Kaman is on the block for a cheap small forward.   Kaman is injury prone, but solid in the middle.  He could be a fantastic Darko back-up.  Given our recent lack of "patience"...

I'm not sure about the validity of the source, but this could be an interesting development in the near future.

I just saw a commercial for the game. It will be aired on ESPN down here in New Zedland. Just a heads up...may be able to get a glimpse of Vitamin R against the world champs.

It doesn't sound like Beastley harbors any ill will. I'm impressed by his attitude.
