Ricky Rubio - Luke Ridnour - JJ Barea
Wesley Johnson - Martell Webster - Wayne Ellington
Michael Beasly - Derrick Williams - Anthony Randolph
Kevin Love - Anthony Tolliver
Darko Millicic - Nikola Pekovic

Unless they are trading Ridnour I see no reason for this

I'm not sold on Barea outside of Dallas. I think the system and the players around him made him a lot better than what he really is. It'll show unfortunately with the T-Wolves. But it could be insurance in the event Rubio stinks it up and needs time to adjust.

Barea was huge in playoffs last year and started at the 2 spot for the last three games against the heat ....he broke the zone again and again.......dude is a winner something a young team can use.....Rubio will get his time don't worry....he is a passing genius and is 6'5....You will see them on the floor together as well......outside shooting and breaking zones....nice pick up.

We are about to be trading a package with Luke in it to the Rocket for KMartin. The rumor is Wes, Luke, Darko/Pek for Martin. Think about that:
Rubio, Barea
KMart, Webster
DWill, Beasley
KLove, Randolph

And Adelman said KLove was gonna run at the 5 spot a good amount, Great pick-up by the Wolves, gotta change my sig...

Against teams with sub par SG's, or bench SG's, Rubio will be able to defend them for small periods of time, so they can play together now and then. Rubio is 6'4", just skinny right now.

lol. This is funny, Kahn isnt even making these moves. I read yesterday that RJ Adelman who is the director of personel is doing the free agent and trade talks. So enough with the Kahn jokes.

Coah Adelman is the one saying what players he wants, whatever we do goes by him. So he obviously wants Barea in Minnesota. A veteran who was on a championship team is a nice pickup for a young team.

Kahn drafted too many PGs. Johhny Flynn sucked big time. Ricky Rubio is taking too long to get to the NBA. Ty Lawson was a great pick, but they ended up trading him to Denver. He must have like 6 PGs right now on the roster. Good thing Flynn was traded away though.

3 pg's, with ridnour rumored to be on his way out. Drafting Flynn and Rubio back to back was a mistake, no doubt, but to have it be following Kahn even to today, is a little ridiculous. Lawson was picked with the knowledge that he would be traded to Denver right away.

I really like the direction the Wolves are going. They are building a really deep team with potential star players at multiple positions. Their pick being shipped to LAC might not even be all that valuable this year...

The_Jamal
12-12-2011, 01:13 PM
This is very similar to the Chuck Hayes signing the Kings made, although Hayes will likely make a bigger impact next season. The Wolves have plenty of young talent and need to surround their stars with solid role players which Barea certainly is. I would have rather seen them get a defensive PG behind Rubio, but adding talent like Barea is never a bad thing and it makes Ridnour expendable

tbone2171

This honestly make no sense for me

Ricky Rubio - Luke Ridnour - JJ Barea
Wesley Johnson - Martell Webster - Wayne Ellington
Michael Beasly - Derrick Williams - Anthony Randolph
Kevin Love - Anthony Tolliver
Darko Millicic - Nikola Pekovic

Unless they are trading Ridnour I see no reason for this

You forgot combo guard Malcolm Lee. He counts as a PG, right? :D

I was going to fix your whole by-position roster up there but it's too difficult since Lee and Barea are combos. Wes and Webster are 2/3s. Beasley and Williams are 3/4s. Randolph is more of a 4. AT is a 3-5. And Love is going to see some center next to Williams and Beasley (if they keep both).

If I were the Wolves, I'd try to preserve the cap space and just play the young kids instead.

Signing veterans like Barea doesn't make much practical sense to me.

But I guess it wouldn't be a bad idea to try to flip him for assets during the deadline when a contender is in need of a scoring guard off the bench.

By all accounts, the Wolves have been making smart moves the last few seasons, so I guess they deserve the benefit of the doubt.

thekmp211
12-12-2011, 01:47 PM

barea is pure offense and attacks more than ridnour. if rubio is really limited offensively they will need a guy like that at the point.

Every team needs smart veteran role players to help keep the youth under control. Nick Collison comes to mind for the Thunder who plays a huge role on that squad. Barea brings a championship mentality and killer instinct to a team that desperatley needs it.

I like the signing and he should help Rubio develop and be a veteran leader that team needs

GrkGawdofWalkz
12-12-2011, 02:31 PM
See to me this is a good signing. They traded former first round Jonny Flynn, which freed up a spot and Barea is an energy guy who is an upgrade over Ridnour who is still servicable and can be moved.

12-12-2011, 03:41 PM
Like the move as long as they can pull off the other move to get Kevin Martin. Barea can play behind and with Rubio because Rubio can defend, gives them another guy that can create off the dribble.

You gotta admit though, its pretty funny how Kahn snatches up all the PGs the Knicks are looking at for the passed four years or so. Does Kahn hate the Knicks? Call me a troll or whatever but these moves never made sense to me. (Ridnour, Telfair, Flynn, and Sessions)

They have three pg's on the roster, one of which is rumored to be traded in a deal to bring kevin martin to Minnesota. They would then have 2 point guards on the roster, and even without the trade, theyd have 3 point guards on the roster. So do many other teams.

Kahn has taken Jefferson, Gomes, Telfair, and McCants and turned it into Love, Williams, Rubio, Wes Johnson, and Beasley.

I think you guys have a really good young team and will make the playoffs this year. I think Kahn has done a great job putting together a respectable team in a small market. I also think some of these PG aquisitions have been bonehead moves. Never should've drafted Johnny Flynn, never should've signed Sessions, and probably shouldn't have signed Ridnour, either. They were useless moves that didn't make your team worse, but didn't make them better either.

After seeing JJ Barea play in the playoffs with energy and effort, he'll be a GREAT PG off the bench. The Wolves need some sort of bench spark. Also, I really think this is indication that Ridnour will be packaged in some sort of deal to acquire other talent.

The PG jokes are overused at this point. Wolves don't have Flynn nor Telfair so Barea fits in fine. He also has experience to help the younger guys and I'd rather have him on my team than Ridnour anyways.

All of the PG jokes will end once the T-Wolves along with Adelman are the most improved team in the league.

If I were making fun of the Wolves, I'd make fun of them for having 3 quality Power Forwards (KLove, Beasley and D-Will). Makes more sense to make fun of that from my standpoint.

Wolves fan...this is an unfortunate misconception you'll have to deal with because people dont worry look further into a situation before they comment. The draft they took those pg's was bizarre, probably right for criticism but the roster is not in that position anymore.

meh, could care less what people's opinions of my team are. I will form my own, and I have some valid criticism of Kahn's moves as well. But the fact is, the roster is in much better shape contract wise, potential wise, talent wise, and coaching wise, than when Kahn took it over.

Dallas have that France PG,he is way more talented that Barea,so good decision from Cuban,Rodrigo Beaubois has talent to become one of the best PG in NBA,so dallas really didn't need Barea so much

So Dallas had three pg's last year? Hmmm...

He's the James Posey / Trevor Ariza of this year. Nice playoff run nets him some nice coin, but he'll struggle not having all the talent around him that he had in Dallas at times. Nice to see him get paid though, he earned it.

I think JJ would have been better off going to NY for 1 year for whatever they could pay him and trying again next year. He could have been an allstar for NY and get a big payday, but its a good pickup for the Wolves! I like the Wolves players honestly but I think that roster is a mess and in desperate of big moves.

Oh I see Kahn acquired another point guard and Arthur Fonzarelli is putting on his water skis!
