Luke Ridnour appears to be heading to the Wolves according to beat writer Gery Woelfel.

The deal is reportedly for four years and $16 million, which has to make Ricky Rubio wonder where he stands, if he even cares at this point. Though Ramon Sessions is on the trading block, Jonny Flynn isn't going anywhere soon, and neither is the uncertainty surrounding Minnesota's PG strategy.


Hawkeye im sorry :(

Johnny Flynn - 3 years + QO
Ricky Rubio - Not Signed
Ramon Sessions - 3 years
Luke Ridnour - 4 years

Why?

If the plan is too get Pg's so a team in need of one will trade good for them it's not happening. NY got Felton, LA got Blake.

Kahn just seems to want to stock up on positions for a future trade. With Pg's and SF's.

Why?

either they know that rubio wont play for them or their front office is just slow. either way its not looking good for wolves fans.

Sessions will likely be part of the big al trade

That's good that they shored up that 4th bench slot at the PG position to help ensure Rubio will not back out on them come 2011. With another PF signing or three at the vet min, they should have their roster all lined up.


...I have to wonder if Kahn and Riley have a bet going on who can retire as the most notorious GM in the NBA.

If AL gets traded for Gilbert I'll lawl

Minny actually has a nice core now, I wonder if they plan on keeping Beasly or will just use him as a rental since they drafted a SF.

Minny will be stocking up on trade assets forever at this point. I mean really, wtf is the plan over there?

Oh My Khan! Why on earth is he piling up all the point guards?

The twolves are also shopping sessions for a salary dump.

The logic in this is that ridnour was the backup for jenninges last year and probably had a large impact on his development.

The thought is that if we can get a solid veteran to help flynn develop that would be better then sessions.

I think Al's getting traded to the Jazz for the trade exception they got for Boozer

Kahn-Artist has lowered Sessions value even more. If he trades him, the Ridnour move won't look so bad or bad at all. When they moves sessions, they only hav flynn and ridnour running the point. Now the moves he made last year didn't make any sense: rafting both flynn/rubio and then outbidding the knicks for sessions, when they could have picked up a cheap vet pg to back-up flynn.

So...they wanted to dump Sessions who they gave a similar deal to the Ridnour deal now. Hmmm.....so is the plan to salary dump Ridnour a year from now too?

Maybe they have a trade in the works with sessions and co.

That would be impressive for a general manager to sell a team he doesn't own.

Whats the point? All Minny fans keep saying is they believe in Kahn. But i just dont see why. It looks like he just makes move to say he is doing something

For the last couple days there have been reports that Sessions is being shopped. Whats wrong with getting a vet that can mentor Flynn like Ridnour and help him out? Nothing at all. But some of you I guess have a problem with it.

Ridnour is a solid Pointguard to have back up Flynn. Sessions and Al to Utah?
