Default Re: Off-season

New Orleans and Phoenix discussed a similar
four-team trade last week, with Boston and Houston replacing Minnesota, but the
Suns pulled out as the deal fell apart.
That's when the Timberwolves
entered the picture.

Timberwolves are targeting former NBA
All-Star Andrei Kirilenko and are willing to pay the free-agent small forward as
much as $9 million per season for at least the next two seasons,

league sources said Tuesday. To clear enough cap space to do so, they reportedly
plan to trade forward Wes Johnson, their No. 4 overall pick in the 2010 draft.

Jerry Zgoda:
is under contract with CSKA Moscow thru 2014 but agent Marc Fleisher says he has
a "small" buyout that allows NBA return now

Jerry Zgoda:
Marc Fleisher wouldn't comment on any interest from Wolves
or any
other NBA teams pursuing n AK-47

Denver is among the teams interested in
signing Andrei Kirilenko

Denver would be a nice fit for him I'd think too. He'll play a larger role in Minny than Boston or Denver. Houston he'd play a big role too but they won't be as good as Minny.
