Reserves are headed the Wolves’ way. The team announced today that they’ve signed both F/C Chris Johnson and G/F Mickael Gelabale to 10-day contracts, following the expiration of Lazar Hayward’s 10-day contract and a hardship exception granted by the NBA to allow a 16th member of the roster on a 10-day contract.

Finding love in a hopeless place

I hadn’t posted on the Brandon Roy news from earlier this past week because I didn’t really know what to say about it. He’s looking for alternative methods to keep his comeback going. He was looking good practicing with the team and had a chance to play this past Saturday if his back-to-back practices went […]

Timberwolves sign Lazar Hayward

With the final roster spot vacated because of Josh Howard’s torn ACL, the Timberwolves have settled on Lazar Hayward to provide some depth on the wing. After working out James Anderson, Joey Graham and Hayward this past week (according to the Star Tribune), the Wolves have settled on Hayward after James Anderson went to the […]

Josh Howard has a torn ACL; Waived by the Wolves

It turns out that Josh Howard’s knee is worse than originally expected and reported. We all thought he had a hyperextended knee from his injury against the New Orleans Hornets. He actually has a torn ACL and because his deal is non-guaranteed, the Wolves have waived him from the roster to open up space to […]

Wolves remaining options to round out the roster

There were reports about a week ago that the Wolves were working out Hassan Whiteside for one of their final two roster spots. They’ve also been linked to trying to bring back Anthony Tolliver or reaching out toward veteran Mehmet Okur to bring in some much needed depth to the interior. My initial thoughts are […]

The sky is falling… upward? TRANSACTIONS GALORE!

OKAY! A lot has happened over the couple days and now we’re getting a better idea of the way this roster could look heading into next season. After missing out on Nicolas Batum (when evil Paul Allen wouldn’t let him go despite Neil Olshey wanting to let him go or at least work out a […]

Wolves amnesty Darko for Batum's offer sheet

It’s officially official that Darko Milicic is no longer a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves. The team used it’s one time amnesty provision during the life of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement to rid themselves of his cap number and roster space so they could have the room to make the 4-year, $46.5 million offer […]

What Alexey Shved can bring to the Wolves

Danny Chau has been driving the Alexey Shved bandwagon for as long as I’ve known Danny. He writes for Hardwood Paroxysm and has a fantastic knowledge of everything that is Alexey Shved on a basketball court. I asked him to give a brief scouting report on Shved so Wolves fans can get more familiar with […]

Alexey Shved… welcome to the Wolves!

He has so many arms!* This morning, we had this tweet from @sportsruenglish, a Russian sports website saying that Alexey Shved was going to become a member of the Wolves: Then, I sent out our field reporter Andrew Renschen (@infraren) retroactively (or you know… he was tweeting with the agent of Shved on his own […]

Is Nicolas Batum worth his weight in Brie?

Regardless of whether or not Nicolas Batum ends up on the Wolves or stays in Portland, he’s going to get paid $45 million over four years (with the possibility of bonuses). Let’s just pretend the contract is going to be four years and $50 million because of the bonuses. That puts Batum’s annual salary at […]
