I guess the best thing of this is that it was done before it became a lingering issue over the organization like the Butler fiasco became.

I still don't regret the Butler trade itself. The alternate option would have been to play it safe and continue to be middling. They took a chance and it didn't work and even then they came out of it with Covington and Saric. The big issues are the extensions where the Wolves essentially found themselves trapped. If you don't keep your own young talent then you have to be able to sign guys on the open market. The other big issue is that he wasn't able to make the Butler thing work as a coach. 

Is 2016 2017 2018 the year that a good pitching prospect is truly blocked by 5 good pitchers in the starting rotation? 

Offseason (noun) - a time to propose trades assuming opposing GM's can't do the same basic analysis

But yeah, 149-107 is not a good outcome, nor a good reflection on the coach or players or anyone involved.

Nothing is impossible for the one who doesn't have to do the work.

I have to vent somewhere. What a absolute joke about the last foul call with only .01 left. If anyone in their right mind doesnt thing that the nba along with the nfl is rigged just watch some of the games. That pos ref is being paid off. I will not EVER bet on another Minnesota team . Such a joke.


Could of won 9k on a 200 dollar nba parlay bet and the ****ing Wolves were the clincher. Unbelievable. .01 whatever

Anybody else get a good laugh out of LeBron complaining about the Harrison Barnes trade, or KD throwing a temper tantrum during his media session the other day? 

 

Have a little perspective fellas....

They should have jumped at the chance to get rid of Wiggins.

The Wolves have been, and continue to be the worst run team in town.
Unloading that albatross should have been a no brainer.

Yeah I don't care how 'on the cheap' the offers were. I'd take an expiring contract and a pack of gum in a second to get rid of Wiggins.
