Start of summer league in Las Vegas

Free agents can be signed
I'll add the T-Wolves schedule once it is released, and we can count the losses until KG is traded, if he isn't dealt before then.
The best case scenario will be if KG is playing really well, and his team is losing, and Tyrus Thomas shows flashes of potential.
I'm going to subscribe to this, and keep bumping it after every game. It's a little early to make it, but we can have al lthe KG trade talk in here. So put your KG trade ideas in here, and keep them off the main board.
Jeff can you please put any KG trade rumours in this thread please?
Wizards can make a legit package for KG that doesn't involve Butler or Arenas. I don't think anyone can deny that that has championship potential, one of the best Big 3s ever (I don't mean like top 5 ever, don't jump on me, but really damn good).
The Wolves can have any player off the Knicks, and I mean any.
Mark Blount (horrible contract)
Troy Hudson (horrible contract, injury prone)
Marko Jaric (horrible contract, horrible player)
New York trade:
Jalen Rose (expirer)
Maurice Taylor (expirer)
Malik Rose (expires two years before Blount)
2009 First Rounder (unconditional)
$3 million cash (towards Malik Rose's contract)
The TWolves rid themselves of a huge amount of salary, and 3 players that are worthless in comparison to their big fat bloated contracts. Rose and Taylor come off the cap at the end of the 2006/07 season, but the Wolves would probably just waive them, to increase their odds of winning the best big man lottery in a long time. They also get some players that are quility starting material to pair up with Randy Foye. This deal is probably the biggest contract dumping deal in history.
