Ricky Rubio is 'confident' the Timberwolves won't trade him

Ricky Rubio has heard his name in some trade rumors this offseason, though there has been nothing substantial.We've heard more interest in him from other teams than we have any desire for Minny to deal him. That might be why Rubio is so comfortable where he stands with the team that drafted him in 2009. Rubio, who is currently in Dubai for the BasicBall Academy summer camps, spoke...

Ricky Rubio on playing with Garnett: 'He kills for you'

Kevin Garnett probably isn’t a guy you want to play against on the hardwood. But play with? Now that’s a different story. The future NBA Hall of Famer is regarded as one of the best teammates in the NBA — as long as you’re working just as hard as him (though, frankly, that’s probably pretty difficult to do). It’s a lesson that one of Garnett’s Minnesota Timberwolves...

Minnesota Timberwolves: Playoff Hopes?

The Minnesota Timberwolves undoubtedly have a star studded cast (or at least a young one), but the odds of making the playoffs? Probably not likely. As unfortunate as that may be, it seems to be an inevitable truth. Though it might be too early to tell, (please let it be too early to tell), the pattern to break set by similar teams in the past seems near impossible. There are a few...

How will Minnesota Timberwolves guard Zach LaVine develop this season?

The Minnesota Timberwolves were forced to use Zach LaVine in ways that didn't suit his skill-set last season. He was on the ball too often, a shooting guard in a point guard's role. But this season, with Ricky Rubio healthy and Tyus Jones and Andre Miller on the roster, LaVine won't play any point guard. Instead, his offensive responsibilities will boil down to creating shots for...

Minnesota Timberwolves sign Andre Miller

Playing 16 years in the NBA is, in a word, sweet, but for Andre Miller, seventeen years would be a more satisfying ending. Apparently, the Minnesota Timberwolves feel the same way. In a message relayed by his agent to the Associated Press, Miller has agreed to play for the Minnesota Timberwolves on a one-year deal worth the veteran’s minimum. While the addition of Miller brings...

The Minnesota Timberwolves have Ricky Rubio and Tyus Jones as their two point guards right now. That's not bad, but it doesn't mean they aren't in the market for a third option who can come in and run an offense until Jones is ready, or in the event Rubio gets hurt. Enter Andre Miller?Miller is 39 years old and turns 40 in March—not the ideal age for an NBA free agent.
