I wish all the best for Roy to be successful. I am very happy with the moves the wolves made this summer. they will make the playoffs this year.

Wolves have made some great moves, though Roy and AK-47 are both roll the dice kind of deals in that we're not quite sure what we are getting. Either way, I like the bench more. If Kahn makes any more moves, I'm hoping he doesn't trade away too much.

Roy and Kirilenko are both wonderful deals. But both should be considered 6th men, first off the bench, for sf/sg -- the key positions for offense if things have gone cold. Both Roy and Kirilenko are good enough to start, and if healthy enough might well do that for a couple of seasons that we have them under contract for, but I expect that Roy will have his minutes limited, and Kirilenko will be used for less minutes taking advantage of those he plays. Shved, and D-will along with Buddinger are likely to end up laying many of those minutes. The move we critically need to make after the olympics, involves Luke and JJ. Two salaries totalling nearily 10 million, which involve our shortest player, and our oldest player, neither of whom is likely to see action if things go well. Luke can be traded immediately following the Olympics, and JJ during the next off season. By then Rubio, Shved, M. Lee will have experience. I would go for another shooting guard when trading Luke -- actually a Wes Johnson clone would be ideal.
