T-WOLVES BOGGLE THE MIND
So you just traded your best player, the face of the franchise. What’s your next move? Acquire an aging, trigger-happy, poor defender whose production has been on the decline for a while now. And that’s just what Kevin McHale did.I’ll grant you that McHale can make other moves after this deal–he’ll have to with 18 (!) players under contract. But if one of them isn’t Walker then it’s reasonable to say the Timberpuffs haven’t the faintest.
Walker is owed around $18 million over the next two years.
“Hopefully he comes in and is a professional,” McHale said.
Um, yeah, hopefully.
Your 2007-08 Timberwolves include Walker, Juwan Howard, Theo Ratliff and Sebastian Telfair. C’mon down! Sure, Randy Foye, Gerald Green and Al Jefferson are bright spots. But is there or was there even a plan in place? Why is McHale even still there?
