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.

    • nice story, fishing has a way of easing the pains we have. even when we hurt like crazy when done for the day we are looking forward to the next outing.
    • way to go, guys yep, the toms not about to give up even though its close to closing time have seen several strutters the past couple weeks and heard gobbles yesterday while fishing
    • great job. makes it 5 for 5 for team 5 congrats on a nice tom, 57 and that willl give our team score a boost
    • One More Cast      Photo by:  Roger Abraham   If any of you out there are regular readers of my tales, you have followed my recent struggles with back and knees.  I can’t put a name to this drive I have to be on the stream as of late.  It borders on obsession. I guess in my mind if I am healthy enough to fish the world is right with me and I am not getting old and feeble.      Today I was a witness to that I am not the only one.  Lots of anglers and hunters live to go out into the outdoors. .  It is what drives them.  It makes them feel alive.  It is their passion.  I told my fishing buddy Abe today my thoughts.  I told him how I was feeling a little old.  I guess my 60th birthday coming up next month makes me feel mortal.  Abe laughed and said I was a young buck compared to him.  Abe turns 76 this year.     Abe told me tales about catching big trout in tiny streams in Wisconsin and out west.  The twinkle in his eye when he reminisced I had seen before in many trout anglers.      We fished a stretch for 2 hours.  I sat down and rested often.  Abe kept on fishing. He got hung up in a box elder branch and lost a lure.  Abe told me box elders trees were his nemesis when he fished.   He asked me which tree was my kryptonite.  I told him, "ones with branches."  We both had a chuckle and continued fishing.   I thought to myself this guy is really driven.  I hope I am like him at 76.     We got to the vehicle and Abe wanted to continue fishing.  Abe’s waders sprang a leak earlier and he fell in the water a couple times.  He was quite wet.  He wanted to change in to dry clothes before we continue.  Abe peeled off his wet shirt and there were two things stuck to his chest.  He could tell by my questioning look he needed to tell me what was up.     Abe told me he had been having heart problems lately and he was supposed to be wearing a heart monitor.  He left it in the car because he was afraid of getting the electronics wet.  Here I have been whining about being old and the guy I was fishing with left his heart monitor in his vehicle.      Abe reassured me that he was in no danger and he could continue fishing.  I started brainstorming on a place to fish where it was not so hard walking.  Now that I knew he was not as healthy as he looked I wanted an easy place to fish.  I knew the place and it was upstream 5 miles.     We arrived at the well manicured field.  It looked like a golf green.  I picked the area because the farmer kept sheep and goats on the land and the weeds and brush were gone because of the goats.  We walked and fished.     Abe told tales of the old days and of fish lost and landed.  I walked a little forward to fish and looked back to check up on Abe.  What I saw when I looked back scared me and I immediately asked Abe if he was ok.  Abe was laying flat on the ground face down.  I thought the worst and he could tell by my face.  He told me to calm down.  His back was acting up and he needed to straight it out and that was the best way to do it.   We fished a little bit more and he took a photo of me.  He liked the lighting. He told me it captured the essence of trout fishing.  He did not have a camera.  I let him use mine.  He was not camera savvy and needed an impromptu lesson on how to use it.   We drove to his car and we talked about our love of the outdoors. We shook hands and headed our separate ways and promised to fish again soon.  As I drove home I smiled and thought about how I am going to be when I am 76.  I hope I am like Abe and my eyes still twinkle when I talk of chasing trout and I am still driven to make one more cast.
    • The past week has had me having multiple close calls and missing a brute at 45 yards.  Tonight I talked my dad to give it another try and there were birds in the field when we got there.  Birds ended up leaving as we tried to sneak in.  A short 20 minutes later they were back and we watched and worked the big group of toms and hens for more than 2 hours before we got one to commit.  Dad shot him with his 20 gauge at 48 yards,(this thing shoots an awesome pattern).  The 3 year old was down and only flopped a few times.   Nice 1+ inch spurs, 10" beard and heavy.  A good evening for sure!
    • Sorry to disappoint guys, but this tom was not my first bird of the season. Apparently that's part of the rules. The score won't count towards the team. I don't have any measurements for the jake I shot so we will have a zero from me.    At least my freezer is full. 
    • Way to  go 1957 !! Congrats!!
    • sugar is not a drug. 
    • Another good day today out on Superior ,,,, Had my first double and triple in the new rig today ,,, the day didnt start out with perfect weather but the fishing more then made up for it ,,, The mud  covers a lot of water but fishing the tea  colored water and edges of the mud paid off ,,, the cohos grew 5 inches  from eating this years smelt,,,, had some go 23 inches today
