At least he has a lot of jerseys for "good memories" now.

Pat Riley's quotes make Quentin Richardson sound like they just acquired Ray Allen. No wonder that he makes some unbelievable trades sometimes...

Plus, why the hell would Minny want Blount?

Same thing I said... doesn't he have a trade kicker too?

Holy sh-t. What a ride this guy's been on.


I guess he'll have to sell a house for the fourth time this summer. It's a joke.


This is clearly a financial move by TWolves to save $1.3 million, because it can't be about improving the team. TWolves had 3 Centers, and 2 SG's. Now they have 4 Centers and 1 SG. WTF?????

I suppose Blount might be traded again....who knows.

Brilliant trade by Heat. Q is an underrated player, get rid of worthless Blount, and makes Wade extremely happy. Win, win, win....and only cost them an extra million.

Mark Blount will be a solid bench addition to a Contender when hes waived.

He was a good underrated player just a few years ago, got hurt by the depth chart in Miami. He just didnt fit there.

If you need a good mid-range jumper, yeah. Other than that, he's completely useless. I hated him when he was with Boston, absolutely hated him. Guy is softer than tissue paper.

At one point with the Heat he had a 3 game stretch where he averaged .33 rebounds a game. Also, this wasn't due to short playing time, seeing as he was averaging something like 20 minutes a game.

He's an outstanding shooter, I'll give him that. When he was with Boston, he was automatic from 15 feet. It seemed like he never missed, ever.

He can't run the floor, he can't defend, he's got horrible feet, horrible hands, he makes rookie mistakes, he can't rebound for sh*t, and is overall a disgusting player. He actually disgusts me.

Sadly, he can shoot the lights out if you give him the ball and enough room, and that's what has kept him in the league.

Excellent for Qrich, he was already tweeting with Dwade and Dorrell Wright on a daily basis. Im sure it helped that hes great friends with those guys, im sure Dwade pushed for that trade.

Here's what the Timberwolves are going to do next:

Twolves trade Mark Blount to the Wizards for Mike James. TWolves save another $1.3 million.

Twolves then trade Mike James to the Nets for Rafer Alston. TWolves save another $1.3 million.

Twolves then trade Rafer Alston to the Blazers for Travis Outlaw. TWolves save another $1.0 million.

Twolves then trade Travis Outlaw to the Celtics for Eddie House. TWolves save another $1.0 million.

Negotiate buyout with Eddie House. Save another $1 million.


All these trades save Kahn about $8 million. Financial genius.
