Timberwolves Roster changes in puzzling ways

I am never quite sure I understand Kevin McHale. I don’t think any one does. I don’t slam him as often as other Timberwolves fans and Timberwolves bloggers do, but if he has a plan for this team, I am not sure what it is and I would like to know.

Yesterday, the Timberwolves confirmed that they worked out a deal with the Philadelphia 76ers that moved Rodney Carney and Calvin Booth to the Timberwolves. It was a weird exchange and if you want to read about it, you will have to check out the local paper because I am in no mood to explain it. What I would like explained to me is “why?” Neither of these players will make a difference on the Timberwolves team next year. Is McHale building an arsenal of players he can trade away for one big guy? If that is the case, some one needs to explain that to the fans because I am losing interest really fast. A group of no namers plus Al Jefferson are not going to win the NBA Championship, they just aren’t. They are going to get stomped on and thrown around. We need bigger guys. I think it is time for Glen Taylor to think about making more changes than just what is on the roster sheet. McHale needs to go and he can take Randy with him. If we are starting fresh with new players, why not start with new managers, too.

The offseason should be a time of hope, but I am stuck in despair.

Ummm... we traded nothing for a future first round pick and a couple of warm bodies whose salary totals 2.8 million. That's worth a conditional first round pick in my opinion. Twas a good trade.
