    I have long wanted Isaac next to KAT...

    Wonder if there is a way to snag both, they would make a good athletic/defensive forward combo next to KAT/Russell.

    I think trading for him is the exciting move and you do it because we don't get a chance for 3 players like Russell/Booker/Towns often... (although that's a lot to offer, imo should be able to keep a piece there)

    That defense though, oof. If we have to move the pieces you mention we basically will be those 3 and cheap role players moving forward. Would be a fun high scoring team better than what we normally have, that's for sure.

    Gordon is a solid defender, I think Isaac is a bit better overall though if we wanna move for one of their pieces.

    I prefer to keep the pick compared to moving it for just Gordon. If we can do a trade and get both or maybe do Gordon and their pick for our pick etc. I would be interested though.

    Isaac is a pipedream. Healthy, he would probably be my second choice in the whole league behind the greek freak.

    cept he can't shoot 3's. But otherwise I like him too.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    factor in too that defensive specialists would come crawling to us to sign, knowing they would have a role on a potentially potent team.

    A bit optimistic I think. Defensive specialists have big demand.
    Hope you are right though

    Did Beasley's time with you all make him a must sign? What type of contract do you all think he deserves and what is too high to match?

    He is likely short of must sign, but yes, I imagine we plan to re-sign him as priority #1. He will likely land in the neighborhood of a 4 year, $55-60 million contract.

    I remember hearing ramblings that the Wolves staff was going to break down and rebuild Culver's jumpshot. Did they do anything, or was it all just lip service?

    Can you guys give a fair assessment on Tom Thibodeau as a coach (x's & o's, player development, line-ups, etc.)?

    Here is your fair assessment: He tries to fit a square peg into a round hole. The guy simply doesn't understand how to adapt his system to his players(nor is his system really worth a damn in the modern pace and space game). Regards...

    Oefarmy hit it. He is an archaic mind who doesn't understand how to connect with the youth of today's NBA. He is way better served as a defensive assistant at this stage, if he has any place in the NBA at all that is.

    Guess we won't know until things resume. I know it's been done before, Mike Miller had his j broken down completely and rebuilt.
