No me gusta nada de nada, de los que suenan y por simple referencia de quien ha sido asistente o demás me gusta el de Houston. Marc Jackson es la opcion que menos me gusta.

Pero al ser todos gente que nunca ha tenido una opcion como tecnco y tan solo como asistente( o ni eso) cualquiera es una incognita,(pero bueno Kahn era la opcion que menos me convencia y de momento tiene mi credito) yo espero realmente que se solucione esta semana como dicen.

Se dice que Rambis quiere mas dinero del que se esta dispuesto a ofrecer.

Y ya casi damos por supuesto que Ricky no viene, cuando se confirme expondre lo que pienso sobre eso y lo que se debería hacer.

PD:Henryk, holgazán, Kahn ya esta en Minneapolis :P

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor has confirmed that the team's coaching search is down to three candidates.

"No decision has been made that one candidate is better than the other two or anything like that," Taylor told Pioneer Press. "As far as I know, we are still looking at those three people."

The three candidates are believed to be ABC/ESPN analyst Mark Jackson, Lakers assistant Kurt Rambis and Rockets assistant Elston Turner.

In an effort to add some height to their undersized front line, the Timberwolves today signed Dallas Mavericks center Ryan Hollins, a 7-foot-0 restricted free agent, to an offer sheet.

Terms of the offer were not released, but the Mavericks have seven days to match.

"We are excited about the opportunity to have Ryan Hollins on our team," Wolves president of basketball operations David Kahn said in a statement. "He is a lengthy, athletic center, with a lot of upside, who should complement Al (Jefferson) and Kevin (Love) really well. We've had our eye on him the past several weeks and we are optimistic we can acquire him through this process."




Aun no he encontrado cifras, y no lo tengo lo suficientemente visto como para opinar en profundidad, pero es un 7 pies y salta, así que me vale. Veremos la oferta sí es por mas de una temporada, las cantidades y sí los Mavs se molestan en renovarlo.


Panda aburridos.
ED:se rumorea 3 años 7 millones.

7 millones son muuuuuuuuuucha pasta a un tío que de media en 132 partidos ha jugado 8 minutos y medio de promedio...


Pero bueno, como bien has dicho baerd, es un 7 pies, aunque hubiera preferido tenerlo un año.


Por cierto, David Kahn cuenta porqué echó a McFail.

A mí tres años tambien me parecen excesivos, no así el precio,son dos kilos, en algun sitio hablan de TO el proximo verano, basicamente es cambiar a Craig por Hollins, lo cual se complementa mejor con lo que tenemos, dicen que buen defensor de Pick and roll y buen taponador, viene a jugar 10-15 minutos, ahora debe demotrar que 3 años es adecuado a poco que rinda a niveles defensivos agradeceremos este jugador, ya que lo buscamos hace tiempo, pero debe demostrarlo.


Sería interesante dar salida a un Songaila con PO para el proximo verano.

El horario no va a cambair por Rubio, quizas los que televisen en España.

Sin Rubio veremos si uno o dos como mucho.


Es muy pronto para elucubrar y más esta temporada en la que creo que seguiremos viendo movimiento en los despachos durante todo el curso. Pregunta para Octubre, pero a día de hoy somos un equipo de 20-25 victorias.

A couple of days ago, the team acquired Ryan Hollins. The first free agent move of the summer, how did this deal come down and why did you decide to go with Hollins?

David Kahn: We've had our eye on Ryan, really, we talked about him even internally during the draft period, not because he was in the draft of course, but as we were thinking of ways to improve the team as you always do when you are in a war room. We really thought his length, his athleticism and his youth combined made him an attractive fit as a complementary piece to both Al (Jefferson) and Kevin (Love). Neither Al nor Kevin are, frankly, big, explosive jumpers and shot blockers.

But this kid, we think, can develop into such a player. And yet he’s not really a starting player, at least doesn’t seem to be at this point of his career, so he’s not going to take much away in terms of minutes from Al or Kevin. I just see it as a nice complementary fit.

We’re really happy to have him on the team. We think he makes us immediately better or an easier way for us to matchup against certain teams in the conference, especially the Lakers and Trail Blazers. We’re very happy to get him.


Vamos, logico, nos hacia falta un suplente de ese perfil, y lo hemos encontrado, ahora solo hace falta que rinda ante los pivots grandes en los minutos de descanso de la parejita.
Jonah Ballow: And looking at the rest of the free agent crop, probably going to take a look at some possible deals you can make toward the beginning of the season. Are there any other positions that you are looking at targeting for the free agency class?

David Kahn: I think that a lot depends on whether (Ricky) Rubio comes or not, this season or not. Obviously if he doesn’t come, we certainly need to add a backup point guard to Jonny Flynn or somebody who can play considerable minutes alongside Jonny.

We probably need maybe one more wing. I’m debating. A lot depends too on what we decide to do with Quentin Richardson, who is on the roster. There’s one scenario where we could move him, but another scenario is he could be on the team.

So I think we still have some tweaking to do. We’ve been doing some tweaking and I believe some of this will continue to occur perhaps even through September. It depends. I can’t really dictate the flow of events. They kind of just occur as they occur.


Veremos que pasa con Q y se huele en el ambiente que Atkins será cortado ahorrando 2 kilos, cosa que me parece logica. Es bastante ahorro por un suplente en el ocaso de su carrera. A Pesar de necesitar un base suplente.

Jonah Ballow: Is it fair to say that in this day of age it’s almost about financially putting your team in good position for the future as much as building the roster for star players. I know that certain teams are in different circumstances. You know, the Cavs are making a run at the title; they’re going to take on a contract that maybe takes them over the luxury tax. But looking ahead to the future, is that financial stability as important right now as adding certain players?

David Kahn: In our particular case, I think the critical issue is maintaining as much cap room as we can have in the summer of 2010. Many of the decisions that I have been engaged in this summer have had, frankly, something to do with that, with the exception of Ryan, who I was willing to give a second year with a third year option at a low number.

With the exception of Ryan, every decision that we have made has been with the intent of keeping our number low for the summer 2010. And I only felt, frankly, comfortable doing that with Ryan, meaning going out beyond next season, until after we moved Sebastian Telfair’s contract which included a second year.

I’ve been trying very hard because I think the cap will come down, and that means we’ll have less room under the cap but that will be the same for everybody. In our particular instance, the financial issues aren’t about financial issues in the normal course of events as much as how do we make certain that we’ve maintained our flexibility through next summer.


Pues nada, Kahn sigue dando muestras de coherencia, gusten mas o menos sus movmientos.

De Rubio no me fio más de lo publicado allí que lo de aquí. Así que veremos.


Y parece que lo de Rambis va en serio, me parece bien, 10 años de asistente de Phil Jackson deben dar para algo. Y Riley, veremos como sale.

The Timberwolves and Kurt Rambis have reached terms on a deal that will install Rambis as the Wolves' new head coach, according to NBA coaching sources.

Rambis was lured away from Lakers coach Phil Jackson's staff by a four-year deal believed to be worth in excess of $8M.

Wolves owner Glen Taylor confirmed ESPN.com's report in an interview with the St. Paul Pioneer Press late Saturday, telling the newspaper that he expects Rambis to formally sign the contract Monday

Longtime NBA assistant David Wohl is coming to the Timberwolves as a top assistant for Kurt Rambis, according to multiple reports.

Rambis, who has agreed to terms with Minnesota, is expected to replace most of, if not all, of former coach Kevin McHale's staff.


y Kahn una nueva carta a los fans, explicando la elección de Rambis y que vamos a correr y correr y volver a correr con muchos minutos para los jovenes aunque cueste victorias, y a vivir en estatico de Big Al, yo nunca he sido muy fan del run and gun, pero bueno.

Dear Timberwolves fans and supporters,

I’m pleased to announce that we’ve reached an agreement in principle with Kurt Rambis to be our new head coach. The search was extensive and thorough, and I’m completely confident that Kurt is the right man to help us develop into a championship-caliber team.

Kurt played for Pat Riley and coached alongside Phil Jackson, arguably two of the three greatest coaches in NBA history. He is ready for this.

Each candidate for this job had three threshold issues they had to agree to in order to be considered:

(1) I want our franchise to become the league leader in player development, and player development starts with the head coach. It is his job to execute this vision.

(2) We will be a running, up-tempo team. Yes, there will be many instances when we will need to rely upon Al Jefferson and a halfcourt offense, but our identity will be fastbreak basketball.

As a player, Kurt was a member of the Los Angeles Lakers “Showtime” teams. Those teams thrived by using an up-tempo style, yet knew how to score in the halfcourt when necessary. They also played outstanding defense. Kurt is committed to employing such a style that will complement the young, athletic players we are assembling.

(3) The minutes distributed to our young nucleus in the next two years must be done with an eye toward the big picture and not the short term. Meaning, we must play our young players consistently and let them learn through their mistakes, even if it means sacrificing a win or two along the way.

With his vast experience in the NBA as a championship player and coach, Kurt has the ability to help lay the foundation for what we aim to be — NBA champions. He is, by all accounts, hard-working and a hands-on teacher. He will help shape and mold our players to bring out the best in them.

The two other finalists for this position, Mark Jackson and Elston Turner, are tremendous persons worthy of a head coaching opportunity. They are class individuals. But, in the end, I believed Kurt’s personality, background and experience made him the best fit for us.

As always, thank you for your interest and passion.

David Kahn

Podrán salir las cosas mejor o peor pero creo que está siendo un verano en el que al menos se hacen las cosas con paciencia, criterio y cabeza fría y no nos movemos dando bandazos y ya parece una franquicia seria y todo, creo que ese estilo nos viene bien con pívots como los nuestros que rebotean muy bien y son muy hábiles y tienen buen ratio de tiro...a ver si nos salen las cosas bien pero siguiendo el criterio de Kahn -cabeza fría, paciencia, criterio...y Lebron James o Wade en minnesota el año que viene :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen: esot último es coña-
