Minnesota Timberwolves: Best and Worst Off Season Moves
Best Move: Drafting Shabazz Muhammad
- Muhammad has his fair share of doubters, but there is no doubt that he is one of the purest scorers in the draft. He was a steal at 14 and fills a big need for the Timberwolves, perimeter scoring. They lacked a go-to player on the perimeter and although Muhammad may not be ready for that big role yet and Kevin Martin will fill that need for now, but Shabazz was an elite scorer in college and within a year, could be the man on the perimeter. The value was excellent at 14 and he fills a need for their future. He could be a big time NBA scorer and is a potential All Star and you cannot do better than that with the last pick in the lottery. Excellent pick Minnesota.
Worst Move: Not Re-Signing Nikola Pekovic
- First, there is little doubt that Nikola Pekovic will end up back in Minnesota, but it should not be taking so long. This is how it goes for restricted free agents, as they must wait to s...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
One of the bigger surprises of NBA free agency is perhaps the fact that Nikola Pekovic’s future with the Minnesota Timberwolves is still unresolved, and not really that close to being resolved.
Pekovic and his representatives will meet with Timberwolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders, owner Glen Taylor, and head coach Rick Adelman on July 29, one league source...
MINNEAPOLIS -- It is merely a hypothetical picture, unless your name is Corey Brewer, Jose Barea or Ronny Turiaf.
It's June in the Twin Cities. You and your family kicked on the AC a few days ago. It's about time for the boat's annual tune-up. You can't go a few blocks downtown without passing an engagement photo shoot. More and more joggers and roller skaters can...
Relativity Sports – an agency that represents a multitude of elite NBA players – put together this video that dispels the “dumb athlete” stereotype that often follows many professional athletes. This video portrays Al Harrington as a chef, Ricky Rubio as an artist, Iman Shumpert as an orchestra conductor, and DeMarcus Cousins as a Shakespearian [...]The post DeMarcus Cousins...
Not a bad video, Relativity Sports. I’ll admit I smiled at the creepy white dude asking Shump to take it to pound town. Next time let’s try to get Ryan Braun to be studying pre-med and trying to find the best place to inject a syringe full of HGH though.
Blake and Melo Get Dancy
Nate Rob To the Nuggs
According to Kevin Martin, his one-year stay in Oklahoma City proved much more than just an in-between layover.
Even entering the 10th year of a pretty successful career, the Minnesota Timberwolves' free-agent shooting guard acquisition is open to absorbing any lesson available.
And the Thunder gave him a lot to soak up last season.
"I learned a lot in Oklahoma City,...
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we featured a couple of clips from the fine folks over at Relativity Sports.
This time around, the Relativity Sports folks decided to focus on the finer things in life with NBA players DeMarcus Cousins, Ricky Rubio, Iman Shumpert, and Al Harrington:
