I would really like Rasual Butler. Plays solid defense, and has a solid three point shot. A good back up for the Small Forward position.
I would love either player in Rocket red.

Butler's definitely a viable option for Houston. He'd come cheap. You could get him for half the MLE (and give Reggie Evans the other half!). I think Evans will get more than that, though.

Ehh, I really am not sold on Minny. They really have just lost my respect in that orgainization the way the have treated Garnett's career as of late, and I really think these moves are too make sure Garnett STAYS rather than winning anything significant. Hell, I am probably wrong. But, I dont see the Wolves making any significant damage in the West. Its too stack. And there absent has been significant enough for most people not to even consider them a threat to get out the first round.

Of course, nothing is for sure EVER, not even after the season begins. I am just saying, if I had to bet anything, it wouldn't be on the Wolves. Maybe its because I want to see Garnett traded to another team and win. I dont know.

They're still the second or third worst team in the West. So basically it just means KG will be traded at the deadline instead of this summer.

Foye
James
McCants
Davis
^One of those is gonna have to go. McCants is done for the season, so maybe not now, but soon.

I wish mike james the best, he's a super tough competitor, that being said i'm glad the raps didn't bring him back, he just lost his freakin mind with about a month left in the season, i'm not sure if he's sane again, but i guess the fans in minny will find out. But in terms of this deal from minny's point, i'm not sure how it works, I mean now they have 3 non-traditional points, one of them being their top pick in foye, in my opinion the only way this works is if they manage to sucker someone into taking jaric.

I know what you mean. Getting James is a goofy feeling. Or should I say, being in a position where you NEED a player like James and hope to get him is a goofy feeling.

I'm plain disappointed. We still only have two good players, and three legit starters.

great fit for james, but i think i is still underrated and undersized even as a pg. im just not fond of shoot first pgs especially small ones.

mike james will be a solid fit with ricky and kevin. both those guys need a person like james to take charge and take the big shots.

i can see james having another 20 and 6 season.

Mike James will never duplicate his performance from last season. Can you say CONTRACT SEASON? Please refer to Larry Hughes.
