Best news I've heard this off-season! Go get him!

I'm fine with trading Wes Johnson, but giving up a first round pick and giving AK-47 $18 million over two years reeks of desperation.

Well I am fine with trading Wes Johnson to make cap space, but do we need to trade away a future first round pick just to clear up cap space? Sounds ridiculous to me..

So, let me understand this...we trade Miller for a 2nd round pick then come back later and give up Wes and a first round pick to get the cap space back? Kahn is so disorganized and unprepared, it is ridiculous.

You sure Miller can be traded back before a calendar year passes?

Round and round and round she goes! Where she stops, nobody knows! So goes the Timberwolves experience this year. Getting dizzy. Who's on this team now?

Ak47 is worth a first rounder....finally a decent move? Of course, this means the end of D will. The Wolves would have blown the pick in some fashion....and yes, this is a desperate move by an irrelevant franchise.

Why do the Wolves have to give up Johnson and a 1st round pick for Miller and a 2nd round pick? How is that anywhere near a good return?

Great move for Kahn! This guy is a proven vetran, and he is great on defence which is something the Wolves despreatly need.. but my only question is... if we get him what happens to Williams? We will have Shved backing up roy at the 2 and bidinger will be backing upp this guy at the 3, are going to force Williams to back up Love and only get 7 or 8 minutes a game?

If Kahn just might back himself into something good yet this year. Talk about falling into the outhouse and coming out smelling like a rose.
