Our youngins, what you think of our young core.
McCants, Foye and Craig Smith. It's not very deep but all three are good players in my opinion.

McCants will undoubtebly become a ferocious scorer if he heals well.

Foye looks like a young, solid player. I don;t know what to think of him because I never saw him at Villanova, but I'm really pumped to see him.

Smith just seems like a muscular banger, watched some of his BC games and seems like a Mark Jackson type.

You forgot Davis and Banks. They give us an awesome backcourt rotation. After a year, if McCants comes back strong we will have one of Davis, Banks, Foye, Bracy, McCants to trade for a big. Of course McHale knows nothing about guard play so expect him to screw up this situation in the worst way possible.

Not sure if banks is staying

i would gladly trade a couple of our young guys for an established vet, like AI or al harrington. KG would benefit tons more with one of those two instead of young guys who are still trying to find themself and who are working on their next contracts. i hope and pray that foye turns out to be a dwade type player like everyone says. i loved watching him play at 'nova. they were my favorite team to watch last year.

i see smith turning out to be a gary trent type player, maybe a lil bit better offensively.

its funny that Troy Hudson is the 2nd longest player to be on the wolves roster behind KG, and its weird to see KG being the "old man" even though he's only 30.

we're a very young team right now.

i doubt T-wolves can truly get much better in a few years without trading KG.. hes getting expensive, and Troy hudson, trenton hassell, mark blount are all signed under huge contracts.. theyr not great players as well... great youth nucleus to build a new team around tho, but dont think the wolves can be a championship contender in 3-4 years

Al Harrington? Are you kidding me? :roll:

IMO... Foye is poor mans Wade....

ZHAKIDD532 07-06-2006 10:47 PM

Foye is gonna be a really dominant player in the league IMO. I don't quite compare him to Wade, not as long or aggressive. More of a Steve Francis with a better attitude I think...
