All fantastic removals! I think we made mistakes getting Lou and Stiemer, and we could certainly make use of Tolliver's energy and shooting right now, but we appear to have much higher quality players this year.

I thought it was a mistake to give up on Wes Johnson during the summer, now I've changed my mind. Dude can't shoot a lick and can't dribble a ball while making an offensive move. Stiemer and Lou are exactly what we need! Role players who contribute with hustle and defensive intensity.

Heckles, Dante is twice the player Tolly was. What is AT doing now?

Excellent tidbit Mr. Rand! Way to keep up on our favorite ex-Wolves. It only highlights the ways in which this ship has finally been righted....

Randolph's comments are revealing. He expects his talent "to take over." What he needs to do is put in the hard effort. Talent will only take you so far.

Kahn has wasted how many draft picks? Wow, just think if they had Curry at SG and Ty Lawson at PG.... The only player Kahn has picked that worked out is Rubio, and that has been for 3/4 a season. Kahn was so smart he ddin't need any help with those drafts. He squandered all the draft picks from the Garnett trade and has one player to show for it. And he still has a job?

Phoenix has no interest in even playing Wes Johnson. If you check a Sun's box score all you will see by Wes is a big DNP. He's not even getting on the court. Adelman did a great job of identifying players that were never going to amount to anything and basically said ... these guys are not coming back.

We are the worst 3 point shooting team, it has literally lost us a few games all by itself this year, and Tolliver could bang 'em down pretty well. I'm just a fan of the guy, and he has sometimes started for his team this year. I too would prefer DC to him but I bet we could squeeze him in instead of Dwill or Josh.

This group personifies the saying, "Addition by subtraction". Thanks Coach A., and nice article Rand. One former Wolf is doing OK, Randy Foye "not Roy" is doing OK this year. But, still wouldn't want him back.

I hope Kahn keeps Adelman on speed dial once he retires for good, and takes his advice on personnel and drafts.
