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.

    • Thanks to Ufatz, I didn't have to make a wasted trip to my mailbox today...
    • YES, they DO shut down if not enough oxygen. Been dealing with that one for almost 15  years of teaching this. They DO NOT have a CO shutoff, that's what I'm trying to hammer into peoples heads. That's what all thermocouples do, shut the gas valve.  A thermocouple is a safety device for some gas appliances. One end of the thermocouple is heated by a pilot flame, and the other end is connected to a gas valve. As long as the pilot light stays lit, the thermocouple holds the gas valve open and lets gas flow to the main burner of the appliance. The sensor on the end of the thermocouple is heated by the flame of the pilot light. The heat generated is converted into micro volts of electricity. This Electricity is enough to open a tiny magnet in the gas valve, and allow the gas to flow. If the pilot light was to blow out, then the sensor on the Thermocouple cools, and then closes the gas valve to the burner. This ensures that when the pilot flame goes out, Gas cannot escape from the pilot. It is automatically shut down.  That's how it works....if there isn't enough O to support the pilot, you might as well hang it up. They've been petitioned to remove their "low oxygen shut off" from their labeling. Best they did was re-word it. 
    • I believe the v-fronts help, but there is always the vacuum on the flat back-end.  I have had both am always surprised by what I'd call the rear drag.
    • Do buddy heaters even have a low oxygen / CO shut off?  My understanding is they have a thermocouple that kills the gas flow if it's not lit, but it will burn as long as there is a pilot light and enough O2 for combustion, which is probably less O2 than what it would take to make you feel like dump.  And even if O2 levels are high, CO can still be off the chart.   Do people get a lot of alarms going off?  Seems like there is going to be CO in my porty just from the buddy heater going even if the conc is well below a danger level.  I figured those things were calibrated for use in places like your house which should be right at about 0ppm, unless it's right next to the furnace.   In a related story, my MIL was house sitting for a friend when the CO detector went off.  She opened some windows and went outside but started getting a headache, naseous, light headed, weak, dizzy, all sorts of symptoms.  Called 911.  Fire department rolled out, ambulance sent.... And the detector was alarming because the battery was almost dead.  CO levels were at 0ppm.    
    • I'll wait patiently on memorial day, veteran's day, the 4th of July, 9/11, Xmas, new years, labor day, or any of the other federally recognized holidays for you to throw up another post with no point.
    • Thinking about building a new Fish House.   Does a "V" Front really make that big of a difference in towing?   Campers aren't "V" front so just wondering. I think I could utilize space a lot better with a regular square front.
    • Did you ever weigh the house?
    • Thanks for the reminder.  The trash goes to the road tonight for tomorrow's pick up.  I'll drag it down the driveway on my way to the lake.    
    • Had to bring the wife back last night anyway but a 3 day run woulda been nice.  I got to play with and feed our granddaughter, get ice gear thawed out and recharge batteries, making lunch and gonna head out for the evening bite.   I have a dream!
    • Thanks Rebelss. You just can't emphasize the importance of a C/O alarm especially with the new fish  houses being built so tight. My service man just ran into a B/O furnace on a no heat after hours call.  Home owner was very lucky and of course no alarm.
