We still need a center
 
and guys like Kelvin Cato and Scot Pollard are still waiting for some cash, what is McHale doing? Cato would help us so much.

Have you watched Cato's game?? Yes he can block shots. But he also is foul happy and rebounding is suspect.

I'm not sure if he's still available, but I would like to see the Wolves go after Melvin Ely.

Melvin Ely would be great for you guys, but he isnt a great rebounder.

Scott Pollard's available, he would bring back memories of that year the wolves were actually good and latrell/hudson had that wacky hairdo

Reggie Evans
 
Apparently the timberwolves made an offer to him. I think it was 1 year at 1.75mil with a player option for the second year. I dunno if I would call evans a "center", but he could help the wolves rebounding.

I would take Cato or Ely to play center for the Wolves. Solid is a key word and Cato is just that.

Ely wont leave Charlotte unless you make a sign and trade deal.

tlang1982 08-17-2006 12:28 PM

Ely is still an unsigned free agent. It even says so on the roster page for the Bobcats. I read that they were waiting and seeing how May was progressing. And I know I've read multiple times they were very impressed w/ May. So Ely could be easy to get.

haha ISH says there's nothing good about Kelvin Cato except his height... he's only 6'10'' though...

TheBigTicket21 10-01-2006 06:14 PM

I'm fine with Craig Smith or Eddie Griffin at center.

Eddie

If this is true then I feel we could be a really good team this year. Eddie had that eye surgery so his shot should hopefully improve and he's losted weight (been working out). I think that "driving incedent" along with the fire that KG has been liteing under everyone might of really motivated Eddie to turn his act arround.

I found it interesting that they listed KG and Griffin. Also, Mike James is on their as well.

I've been waiting to be an Eddie Griffin fan since he came to the Timberwolves. When he came into the league I thought he was going to be Tim Duncan with better range and defense. Sadly, all of people's expectations for him haven't been fulfilled. People who have watched him see how he can take over a game with his defense.

He could be a fantasy team's dream with all the different things he can do on offense and defense. Garnett thought this dude was actually better than him when he first got moved to the wolves. I hope he was right too, maybe this year he'll show us what he can do. I just hope he doesn't get away from us once he hits free agency.

I was searching on the net and found a prospect analysis on Eddie Griffin.

http://www.nbadraft.net/profiles/eddiegriffin.htm

He's still young and he hasn't applied himself like most prospects that turned out to be bogus so keep the faith.
