"But Shved does give coach Rick Adelman another skilled player on the perimeter." Kent, Shved is "skilled" compared to whom? The other perimeter players on the Wolves roster?

I hope this kid tuns out to be a good player for the Wolves. But, I just wish the Wolves would have signed O.J. Mayo or Courtney Lee instead of Shved and Roy (who will make about $8 Million combined). It's been a decent offseason so far, but Budinger, AK47 and Mayo would have been really nice.
