Instead, in his four years on the job he has made more trades than times Dwight Howard has changed his mind about being traded, drafted more point guards than an apartment complex could support, and traded away more draft picks than Jarrod Saltalamacchia has letters in his last name. And now, the T’wolves are in another transition of which I am about to get to. Have you ever seen the movie White Men Can’t Jump? Ironic, because a year or so ago Kahn said he desired to have athletic wing players who can get up-and-down the floor in transition. He drafted Wesley Johnson, signed Martell Webster, and traded for Anthony Randolph and Michael Beasley. How ironic is it that none of those players are on the team anymore.

Granted, I’m no fashionisto (wha?), but I can’t imagine I’m the only one who believes that Timberwolves star Kevin Love looks certifiably ridiculous in the duds he will be sporting for the London Olympics Opening Ceremony event on Friday. What’s the deal with the beret? It reminds me of when those French chicks make fun [...]
David Kahn has assembled a roster with position flexibility.
MINNEAPOLIS The Timberwolves officially signed Russian guard Alexey Shved on Wednesday. The team did not announce the terms of the deal, which is reported to be for three years and 10 million.
Just hours after trading guard Wayne Ellington to Memphis for forward Dante Cunningham, the team confirmed one of the signings that may have helped to push Ellington out. The Timberwolves...
Well played. At some point during a Team USA flight Wednesday evening, Timberwolves star Kevin Love took a gander around the cabin and noticed a lot of his teammates were well on their ways to Dreamland, so he snapped a photo and posted it, much to the delight of everyone. Tweeting “I win,” Love even managed [...]

The NBA released the 2012-2013 schedules earlier tonight and the Minnesota Timberwolves will play on national television (ESPN & TNT) six times during the season.

The Minnesota Timberwolves have acquired forward Dante Cunningham from the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for guard Wayne Ellington.
Cunningham was selected by the Portland Trail Blazers in the second round of the 2009 NBA draft. In three seasons, the 6-foot-8 forward has averaged 5.2 points, on 48.5 percent shooting, and 3.3 rebounds in 205 games.
Cunningham started the 2010-11...
MINNEAPOLIS Andrei Kirilenko is 11 years older and set to make more than 11 times the money than he did the first time he jumped to the NBA. He's no longer a fresh-faced rookie but rather one of the final pieces in a Minnesota Timberwolves roster David Kahn has been reassembling for weeks.
Kirilenko's signing came immediately after the Timberwolves finalized a trade Friday...
After going back home to play ball in Russia last season, Andrei Kirilenko will be back in the NBA this year. The former Utah Jazz small forward has signed a 2-year 20 million dollar with the Minnesota Timberwolves. This coming after Minnesota has recently cleared some space for the signing of Kirilenko Via trade involving [...]

David Kahn acknowledged that Derrick Williams will have to improve his play in order to receive more playing time in his second season.
He took the NBA by storm with his dazzling passes and ability to hit the open shot but in an instant, Minnesota Timberwolves' Ricky Rubio went down with a terrible knee injury. And with that, the winning spirit went out of the Timberwolves and their chance for a playoff appearance floated away.
Now that the Timberwolves have done some roster changes to improve the team heading...
