Minnesota Timberwolves: The Alexey Shved situation

The Minnesota Timberwolves over the past few years have tried to figure out the Russian player Alexey Shved, but it just has not worked. Shved was a good player and great shooter in his time in the Russian professional basketball league and in international play for his country, but he just can’t produce the same results for the Timberwolves. The Timberwolves brought in Shved two...

Wolves' Shved hopes to impress in summer league

MINNEAPOLIS -- Back in April, it may have been difficult to imagine Alexey Shved donning a Timberwolves practice jersey and scuttling around the team's training facility.

  This is the first in a 14-part series evaluating each Timberwolves player's performance during the 2013-14 season. Erratic, sporadic and problematic. Alexey Shved means well. His effort level is unquestionable. But it's become clear after two seasons the 25-year-old Russian isn't quite NBA-ready yet. Hoped to provide a spark off the bench and play some meaningful minutes...

Alexey Shved, Russia bounced early from EuroBasket event

This time a year ago, Alexey Shved was basking in the glory of international basketball stardom, a bronze Olympic medal hanging somewhere in his possession. For the second-year Timberwolves reserve, that aura carried over to EuroBasket 2013. The same can't be said for the Russian Federation as a whole, though.

Timberwolves intrigued by rookie Shved

MINNEAPOLIS With Alexey Shved, listening is an effort. You're trying so hard to hear him that you forget what he's saying, willing so hard for it to be louder and slower that the words cease to make sense.It's not that Shved doesn't speak English. He does, and pretty well for a player who was born 5,000 miles from Minneapolis and lived in Russia until last month...
