They've also been tanking for, what, six years now? Suck for that long and you're bound to have a talented team.
Despite all the jokes, Kahn has assembled a really nice team with great upside and plenty of cap room. Minnesota could be this seasons surprise team and would make the playoffs in the east.
PG- Rubio, JJ Barea, L. Ridnour
SG- Wesley Johnson, Wayne Ellington, Malcom Lee
SF- Michael Beasley, Martell Webster, Anthony Randolph
PF- Kevin Love, Derrick Williams
C- Darko, Brad Miller
All of that above plus a few other pieces for a little over 52 Million ( or about the same as the Bobcats are paying this year).
PG- DJ, Kemba
SG- Hendo, Carroll, Williams
SF- Maggette, Derrick Brown
PF- Tyrus, DJ White, Smack(maybe this season)
C- Diaw, Diop, Ely.
Yes they have a damn fun team to watch. I really enjoyed watching them last night. I've been following Ricky since he was 16 so Im a big fan of his...also a big love fan. Derrick Williams looked great too last night...lots of potential. Barea seemed to work great in the backcourt with Rubio.
I think that we are a few contracts and a few years from producing what they have done. If and when we rid ourselves of Diaw,Diop and maybe Carroll contracts, we we will be in line to add more young talent.
Ehhh I'm not sold on them. Love is a monster but beyond him there is a lot of potential but not much of it has been realized yet. Don't get me wrong I'd love a similar roster for us but I doubt they make the playoffs this year.

Anyway this thread should be moved to Around the NBA. What Kahn and the Wolves do is no concern of ours.
