The greatest player in NBA history, yes, even greater than Mike James, is on the trading block! Are the T'wolves crazy??? :speechless::speechless::speechless:


http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=4497980

The second-highest paid player on the Minnesota Timberwolves will not be welcome at training camp. Instead, center Mark Blount will stay home after the Wolves gave his agent permission to seek a trade.

Blount, acquired from Miami in mid-August for Quentin Richardson, is due to make $7.962,500 this season in the last year of his six-year, $42 million contract. But with Minnesota in full rebuilding mode, general manager David Kahn told ESPN.com Wednesday that the club has given Blount's agent, Mark Bartlestein, permission to seek out a trade.




NBA Rumor Central
ESPN Insider has the updated buzz from the National Basketball Association rumor mill.
Story

Blount spent the past two seasons with the Miami Heat after playing the previous year and a half for Minnesota. Kahn was candid right from the start about moving ahead without Blount, announcing the day after he acquired him that he hoped to re-trade the 33-year-old for a player or players with similar expiring contracts.

Minnesota has veterans Blount ($7.9 million), Brian Cardinal ($6.75 million) and Antonio Daniels ($6.6 million) coming off the cap in the summer of 2010, when Minnesota will be far under the salary cap with Al Jefferson ($13 million), Ryan Gomes ($4.2 million) and Ramon Sessions ($4 million) the only high-salaries veterans on the payroll.

Blount, a seven-footer often criticized for his inability to rebound on a consistent, productive basis, had his best season statistics-wise in 2006-07 when he averaged 12.3 points and 6.2 rebounds while starting 81 of 82 games for Minnesota.

Blount appeared in 20 games for the Heat last season, and Kahn took some criticism when he sapped the Wolves' backcourt depth by trading Richardson for him six weeks ago. But since then, Kahn has signed guards Sasha Pavlovic and Ramon Sessions to add depth in the backcourt behind Damien Wilkins and rookie Wayne Ellington. The minutes at backup center that Blount would have competed for will instead go to Ryan Hollins, the free agent signee from Dallas.

If Bartlestein cannot find a taker for Blount in a trade over the course of the preseason, the likely next step would be for the sides to negotiate a buyout.

Omfg the Timberwolves are so stupid, they should be trading Jefferson to make room for Blount, also I'm not sure why the Heat even traded him, the only offer that's worth it is Blount for Mike James, anyway's i really hope the Heat offer a Package of Wade + Beasley and Chalmers for Blount.

We will give you Blount in a sign and trade for Wade and a future 1st rounder. And you are getting a steal on that brother

I absolutely love the Blount/James thing that goes on in PSD. There are so many of you that don't break character when talking about how awesome these two are. And the funny thing to me is, McHale had them both on the same team at the same time, haha.
Thank god lurch is gone

this trade can't work. Madsen was traded to the Clips and then waived by the Clips last month. Dang nabbit! There's always this one annoying thing that keeps an important trade from happening. the wizards could've gotten freakin mark blount while the wolves couldve gotten mike james back!

You guys are looking at this all wrong. The wolves don't need a player like lebron or Kobe in return for Blount. We'd be giving too much away anyways. We need real star power on this team, which is why I say we try and swing a trade for a guy like John Stamos or Erik Estrada. We put one of those guys in there, the other teams will be so star struck they wouldn't even know how to defend them. Kobe would be like "hey, that's the guy from full house", and as he ran to get a piece of paper for an autograph, Stamos would already have made an easy layup. Same things goes for the "chips" guy, erik estrada.

We have to think big here and maximize value for guys like Blount and Cardinal.
