The trade part 1

38 posts in this topic

We all know this is just the first move of Star Trek's Kkkkaaahhhnn, but what are we going to do with four picks including 5 and 6.

thoughts?

Love to see Jefferson and #18 for number 2 and somebody?

Who else has a plan?

I think the 'Evil Kahn' is up to something with the stock-piling of picks. I think he may be going to package one or two picks into a veteran player or two tommorow, or even move up higher? Stay tuned!

I think this gets us one step closer to Rubio, all I hope is that we stay away from Thabeet! No way we get rid of Big Al, our only all star quality player we had.

Timberwolves draft 2009, whats the worst that could happen wink

The way the wolves draft players it will probably take all 4 of their first round picks just to get 1 good player.

Saying they shoot 25% on draft picks might be a bit of a stretch though.

Here is what they do. Move up in the draft to get say a Rubio, then trade him for the #26 overall draft pick. It's simple T-Wolves logic!!

Hey now. McFail is gone. Maybe this new front office can actually get things done. I'm actually interested in the Wolves for the first time since the conference finals run. I'll give Kahn a chance. I liked the trade.

I just hope you are right toughguy. I want to be interested in our team again, just do not have much faith in them right now.

I really liked the trade. We got rid of miller who was suppose to help lead the team last season and had his worst one ever. Foye needs a true point guard in order to play I think wich we do not have. Now we have a chance to get a whole bunch of young talent if the draft works out for us.

I sure hope our draft luck changes for the best. laugh

Well, the stink of the Roy-Foye trade will be gone. I too was disappointed in how poorly Miller played this past year, but if the trade gets you picks, keeps you young, and opens the books, why not? I'm willing to roll the dice with Kahn, provided he can show me as a fan some success. I'm just not sure that moving up one more spot is really anything to get excited about.

I'm with you guys, get young, suck it up for a couple of years and then see where we are. Hopefully they can get a good, young team built and add a star with Big Al to get the team rollin'.

I couldn't watch the team much this year. Should would be nice to have something to watch again.

I like Curry too but your friend Pam in your avatar has bigger arms than he does. He needs to put on some NBA muscle.

why can't i see his avatar!! I can see toughguy's avatar and eveybody else's but I can't see BKS's and it sounds like it is a nice one......

I am on the fence about Curry.....he doesn't spark me as a potential star.......now if they end up with any combo of Rubio/Flynn/Evans/Harden I will be excited

What's up with Rubio's additude? He's like 'I don't know if I want to play in MN, I'll have to talk to my agent' Is this going to be another T wolves flop who decides he doesn't like the cold weather and stays in Europe.

The interview I saw is on the KARE 11 HSOforum, check it out frown

I think that he had almost no idea what he was being asked in that interview. When asked what Ricky Rubio brings to the T-Wolves he said, Jefferson can dunk, ahhh I don't know we will see. In my opinion he shouldn't care where he goes. Every team in the top 5 was pretty bad last year anyway. No difference going here or to say a Memphis. Not too sure if I like this guy.

isn't he responsible to buy out his europe contract if he wants to play here next year. something like 6 million.

Yeah he is responsible. Minnesota can give him $500,000 to it but the rest is up to him. I doubt he will come to Minnesota ever to play. His dad said that since he was drafted by minnesota he will probably play 1 or 2 more years in europe.

This is great our #5 draft pick probably won't even play.

Jennings was grinning ear to ear!! This Rubio junk is kind of a mess. I didnt think he would be like that.

Did they not know this before drafting him? Might be something you want to let folks know about before a draft.

    • CCG here is an old tsb.  Not for your year but it's the same smoke and mirrors.   #PIP4574M: Excessive Oil Consumption And/Or Blue Exhaust Smoke - Investigation Update

      Subject: Excessive Oil Consumption And/Or Blue Exhaust Smoke - Investigation Update

      Models: 2007 Buick Rainier

      2007-2008 Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe, Trail Blazer
      2007-2008 GMC Envoy, Sierra, Yukon
      2008 Pontiac G8
      2007-2008 Saab 97x
      with a 5.3L or 6.0L Aluminum Block V8 Engine
      and AFM (Active Fuel Management)
      RPOs LC9, LH6, L76, or LFA


      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      This PI was superseded to include revise the affected RPO codes, specify that this is for Aluminum Block Engines only, update models and provide a general update on the status of this investigation in step 5. Please discard PIP4574M.

      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

      The following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.

      Condition/Concern:
      Some customers may complain that their vehicle has been using approximately 1 quart of oil every 500-1,000 miles. In most cases, the customer will advise that this did not start until the engineaccumulated approximately 30,000 miles or more. In some cases, the customer may note that this is more apparent when driving at highway speed. In rare instances, a SES light and engine misfire may be encountered with a P0300 DTC.

      Upon inspection, an oil fouled spark plug(s) may be noted. In most cases, static compression and cylinder leakage testing will appear normal. Excessive oil may or may not be found in the intake manifold.

      In most cases, this is the result of stuck oil control rings. Generally, the stuck oil control rings are the result of excessive oil on the cylinder walls. The excessive oil can come from the PCV system and/or the AFM pressure relief valve in the oil pan.

      Recommendation/Instructions:
      If this concern is encountered, follow the steps below:

      Visually inspect the entire engine and the underside of the vehicle for any evidence of oil leaks and repair them as necessary.
      Inspect the fresh air hose/pipe that is attached to the RF (passenger side) valve cover and all related connections for restrictions, such as plastic casting flash or a pinched hose, and repair as necessary. A restriction in this area may cause excessive crankcase vacuum and oilconsumption through the PCV vacuum tube.
      If the truck has an engine misfire and a spark plug that is obviously oilfouled, skip to step 4 since this proves that it has an obvious oilconsumption concern. If not, perform an oil consumption test as outlined in the latest version of oil consumption of 01-06-01-011 to verify the concern before proceeding to step 4. Allow the vehicle to sit on a level surface with the engine off for at least 10 minutes to allow the entire engine to drain back to the oil pan before checking the engine oillevel and adding oil. Compare the oil consumption test results to one of the scenarios below to determine further direction:
      • If oil consumption is Less than 1 quart of oil every 2,000 miles and no low oil light has been experienced, no repairs should be performed as this should be considered acceptable oil consumption as outlined in the latest version of 01-06-01-011.

      • If oil consumption is Less than 1 quart of oil every 2,000 miles but the customer has experienced a low oil light, refer to the latest version of PIP3959 for a potential low oil light sensor concern.

      • If the dealership verifies that oil consumption is More than 1 quart every 2,000 miles, perform the steps below as necessary:

      Determine if the engine has been ingesting oil through the PCV system by removing the intake manifold and measuring how much oil can be poured out of the throttle body opening with the throttle bodyremoved. It is normal to get a couple of teaspoons of oil out of the intake. If the engine has been ingesting oil through the PCV system, several ounces of oil will be measured, many times as much as a 1/4-1/2 quart.
      • If the engine HAS NOT been ingesting oil through the PCV system, go to step 5.

      • If the engine HAS been ingesting oil through the PCV system, inspect the PCV baffle as outlined in the rest of Step 4 below:

      4a. Remove the LH (driver's side) valve cover and inspect the PCV baffle drain holes shown below to see if they are plugged with hardened oil deposits. If they are plugged, replace the valve cover, ensure that the customer is changing their oil according to the maintenance schedule in their owner's manual, and re-evaluate the concern. Generally, this would not be a concern until several thousand miles have accumulated.

      4b. With the LH (driver's side) valve cover removed, inspect the PCV baffle to ensure that it is properly sealed to the valve cover by flipping it over and adding a little oil to the corner of the valve cover as shown below. The oil should stay in place as shown on the 2 outer valve coversbelow. If the oil drains into the PCV baffle as pointed out on the middle valve cover below, replace the valve cover. Generally, if this is the cause of the concern, it would have been present early in the life of the vehicle or shortly after valve cover replacement.


      Important: If Step 4a or 4b led to valve cover replacement, perform Step 4b again on the replacement valve cover before installing it.


      • 4c. If the engine HAS been ingesting oil through the PCV system but the valve cover passed the tests outlined above, the engine may have an over-aggressive lifter that is causing the oil ingestion through the PCV system. Sometimes the lifter may be doing this intermittently so it is not always possible to isolate one by inspecting the lifter flow with the driver's valve cover removed. As a result, it is suggested to replace all 8 of the left/driver bank lifters due to the oil in the intake and re-evaluate the oil consumption concern. The right/passenger side lifters should not cause oil in the intake so there is no need to replace them. If the vehicle returns with excessive oil consumption but is no longer ingesting oil through the PCV system, it most likely has stuck oilcontrol rings as outlined in Step 5.

      If the engine HAS NOT been ingesting oil through the PCV system and there are no obvious valve seal concerns, this is most likely the result of the AFM pressure relief valve in the oil pan spraying oil on the bottom of the cylinders when active fuel management is on. This may eventually cause the oil control rings to stick and increase the rate of oilconsumption. As outlined in the July 2010 GM STC Service Know-How Emerging Issues Seminar (10210.07D), a related bulletin is going to be released to repair this by cleaning the oil control rings and installing a shield over the AFM pressure relief valve. This bulletin was scheduled for a July 2010 release but the bulletin is still going through the final stages of the release process. At this time, it is on track for a mid-August release date. Once released, you will be able to find the new bulletin in the New Bulletins Section of Service Information and this PI will be updated to include the bulletin number as well.
      If you would like to view the July 2010 GM STC Service Know-How Emerging Issues Seminar (10210.07D) mentioned above, you can find it by following this path:

      • Go to the GM Training page. (If necessary, there is a link to this page at GM Global Connect "Dealerworld")

      • Enter your Training Person ID and Password.

      • Click the "Service Know-How/TECHAssist" Link

      • Click the "Emerging Issues" Link

      • Click the "Searchable Streaming Video" Link

      • Click the "10210.07D - July 2010 Emerging Issues" Link

      • Click the 9th Link down for High Oil Consumption

      Notice: Piston and Ring sets should no longer be replaced for this concern unless it is absolutely necessary. If stuck oil control rings are found and you decide to replace all 8 pistons and all 8 piston ring sets, we DO NOT recommend honing or deglazing the cylinder walls due to the great variation between equipment, machine shops, and technicians performing these repairs. This is because it is generally unnecessary and can induce unnecessary cylinder wall and/or piston ring damage if it is done incorrectly or not cleaned thoroughly. The cylinder walls just need to be cleaned thoroughly with brake cleaner before the new piston and ring sets are installed. At this time, you may also experience a back order situation if you order new pistons and rings.
