There are a lot of Ronnie Brewer fans out there, I guess. But no Corey Brewer fans.

I like Corey. He's a long, lanky defensive specialist. He can't shoot or dribble worth a damn the last I saw him play, but he'd be a great fit on a team like SA where all he'd have to do is D up and hit open shots. He's got a lot of potential if he can solve those offensive problems. Shame this injury will set him back.

That sucks. He has started to shoot a lot better this season especially in the last 4 games. He was just starting to come around and now he is going to have to start all over.

Hah, same. I like Ronnie.

And sucks for Corey. Hope he's ok though. I don't really know how he is as a player but this injury could hurt his progress.

too bad. He was having a decent season. He has a long way to go, but he will be a good role player in the league. They should package McCants, Collins, and next years #1 for Gerald Wallace. The Wolves have up to 4 #1 picks. They could afford to do so.

Richardson would help the T Wolves. But does that match up salary-wise? I doubt it. Unless Collins makes a bunch more money than I expect.

Just over 20 minutes per game. But he was starting.

Gerald Wallace matches up exactly salary wise with Collins and McCants. The Wolves could throw in their #1, with a top 3 protection, and that would be a good deal for both squads. Wallace has like 4 more years, Collins and McCants have none. Plus a top 10 pick to the Cats. The Wolves have up to 4 picks, they can give one up.

Poor kid. I hope he'll recover and get back on track next season. Good luck to him.

This really hurts his development more than anything. It always seems like the Timberwolves have such terrible luck, mostly in the lottery.

Too bad, loved this kid. A lot of heart and he just got after it. Maybe he'll come back with a better shot, because that would really make him a good player. His D is excellent, but his offense is non existant.

That's the good part (what you said at the end). Gomes deserves more time on the court and so does Love. Don't know about Carney. Hasn't showed much in the past. But maybe this is his time to shine.

One of the dumbest draft picks in Minnesota history, its as if Kevin KcHale only scouts players that make the final four.

Im well aware of his track record but your right I havent seen much of him this year, but I saw all I needed to last year. The man has no offensive game, zero creativity off the dribble.

The man cant scout for ****

He should improve, he was at rock bottom last year. Still a horrible lottery selection.

Clearly every young defensive minded player is unable to find a jump shot.... I wouldn't be so quick to write him off.

22 is not young, by 23-24 players are pretty much done growing and their learning curve is near complete, from that point on they only add to their already established games, and he needs more than just a jumpshot, Corey is so far removed from being an NBA level offensive player that even if he improves leaps and bounds hes still just going to be a role player for life, hes the kind of guy you draft in the mid 20's possibly 2nd round. I dont understand the logic behind drafting a ROLE PLAYER just because he played for a championship team in College.

Curiously though why do people continuously defend this guy? Why is he so well liked when he sucks so bad?

Even as a Nuggets fan, I feel sorry for the players on the Wolves. Their FO screwed them with the KG trade, and the team needs an overhaul.

As a first step, in order to get some new young talent and some salary relief, I think they should do this deal (http://games.espn.go.com/nba/features/traderesult?players=558~26~1002~2770&teams=7~16~16~16&te=&cash=) (with Denver throwing in a first, perhaps, to sweeten it).

while he doesn't suck at all, you make a good point. He is late first round pick. The Wolves took him WAY too early. But, another lottery team would have taken him anyways. The problem is, too many scouts want to associate college success with the NBA, when today's game is too different. Look at Florida's players then. Horford will carve himself a good career, the rest are role players at best. The NBA is all about physical ability, and matchups. College success nowadays, means they stayed too long.

why on earth would the Wolves do that deal? C'mon dude. Not one of those Nuggets is a player. Not one. And they aren't bad enough to sweeten the offer with a first rounder, especially since the Wolves have so many first round picks in the next 2 years.

:cool: Well I wasn't exactly being totally serious.

But the Nuggets have wanted Miller for a while now, and Kleiza is definitely on the radar screen of a lot of GMs in the league (he'd be the starting SF on a lot of teams). In fact, while Miller is definitely the better player, I think it's questionable to assert that he's really $8.5 million better than Kleiza. A look at their per 36 stats this season:


Rk Player Season Age G GS MP FG FGA FG% 3P 3PA 3P% FT FTA FT% ORB DRB TRB AST STL BLK TOV PF PTS
1 Linas Kleiza 2008-09 24 19 4 437 4.9 11.9 .414 1.8 5.6 .324 3.5 4.6 .768 1.9 4.6 6.5 1.3 0.6 0.3 1.6 3.0 15.2
2 Mike Miller 2008-09 28 16 16 556 4.7 9.9 .477 1.6 3.9 .393 1.4 1.7 .815 0.6 5.3 6.0 4.7 0.3 0.3 2.0 2.4 12.4


Do I actually think this trade would happen in reality? No, but more because of the Wolves' unwillingness to take on Hunter's injury-laden contract than because of the basic principle of the trade being outlandish. I definitely don't think it's so "C'mon dude" ridiculous as you do. LK is in his 4th season, MM is in his 9th. LK would travel with Bird rights and could be signed at or just under the MLE, while Miller is pretty much double the cost, and while he's a "real player", he's not exactly the kind of piece you build a franchise around, so by cutting salary while getting in exchange a 1st and a lesser-but-comparable player, the Wolves would increase their flexibility and their ability to sign a real "real player" next offseason.

Besides, would anybody put anything past McHale at this point?

McHale luckily doesn't make the decisions anymore, hence the Wolves making decent trades in the last 18 months. Miller is a great player to have age. He is a shooter, tall, works hard, and has a skillset that is invaluable. Every contender in the NBA has been chasing him. The Wolves should hold onto him for dear life. As their young team grows, and they make noise 3 years down the line, Miller is exactly what they will need.
