Default Mike James agrees to deal with the Wolves!

I love it, absolutely love it.

What does everyone else think?

i think it is stupid, he only wants money. He went to the Minnesotta timberwolves for the money. If he didnt want the money, he would have gone to where he lived, Houston, Texas.

Yeah, I love it. I knew McHale made some mistakes in our orginization, but I knew he was going to do something smart and pick Mike James up. I just hope the guy has a performance like he did last season. I wish that Mike James was a proven scorer instead of one breakout season. He should continue the same thing he did last season and I think he will. It's a great fit, Garnett is similar to Chris Bosh so it should work the same way. We definetely have a playoff team now, It's in the bag. I just hope that we can make some other moves for another defensive minded player in the PF or C positions, and maybe try to keep banks if we can dump somebody like Jaric or Hudson, but I'd rather dump Hudson and Jaric in the middle of the season instead of right now.

He went to Minnesota because we offered him a year more.

He went to Minny for the 'cha ching', unfortunately I think you will find what you are getting is a good player who is far to selfish and self-centered to lead anyone anywhere. Why do you think Toronto with all that cap room would let him go.......best of luck......being a raps fan I hope he works out for you but wouldn't bet a nickel on it.

Getting a veteran scorer for the Wolves is a good move, and whether he came for the money or not it's not like the Wolves overpaid him even a little, 4 years at the MLE is very reasonable for a 31-year old coming off a 20ppg season, I mean look at what Peja got.

Allows the wolves to get Banks go easily, and they have a pretty solid backcourt now, what's missing as always in a solid center, though they do have some pieces to offer in trades for Magloire or Wright, like Jaric or Hudson or McCants or Griffin.

The reason James didn't work in Toronto was because the Raptors suck.

Default Miles for Jaric

Excellent news. This means that the Wolves can now let Jaric go for Darius Miles. Good buddies with KG and a big time scorer.

He did work in Toronto. 20 ppg and 6 apg is working IMO.

I think once McCants comes back either him or Foye will star. I don't think they want their 3 best young players (along with Craig Smith) coming off the bench.
