I think the Pelicans new logo is pretty sweet even though the name Pelicans will take some getting used too. It's not like Hornets was a great name. Another question for the final 41, will Ricky Rubio start to look like the player he did last year? Last night at Charlotte, he looked like that player, hopefully it continues. Also, will the Wolves end up with a high lottery pick this year and if so how bad will they blow the pick? Maybe this year will turn out like the year the Spurs lost David Robinson for the season and ended up with the #1 pick and landed Tim Duncan. I know, very wishful thinking but as a Wolves fan, I'm just hoping there is a silver lining to all these injuries.

I think it time to deal Derrick Williams before the deadline. In a couple months when or I guess I should say if the Wolves get healthy, he is going to be buried on the bench again. With AK and Buddinger at the small forward and Love and DC at the power forward, he will not play much at all. The Wolves also have the 2 new forwards on 10 day contracts that will probably be around. It's also easy to see that he isn't a favorite of coach Adelman. Even though I think he's going to be a quality player, he's just going to be losing trade value and frustrating Wolves fans buried on the Wolves bench. He also plays the same position as K-Love, that's a lot of money going to the power forward position (20 million (13-14) and 22 million (14-15)). If they can get back someone who can help them win games, do it. The Wolves need a shooting guard who can hit threes and play Defense.

1. I could be wrong but I believe Roy is finished.2.Chris Johnson has been signed for the remainder of the yearhttp://www.ridiculousupside.com/2013/1/27/3921478/timberwolves-to-sign-nba-d-league-alum-chris-johnson-for-rest-of-the 3. Although I am not a big fan of Adelman he is much better than Terry Porter.4.I would be in favor of sending Williams and Pekovic to LA for Gasol. I believe he could help this team immediately.I have seen enough of Williams. He should have stayed in college. I am concerned that like Love Pekovic is not going to be durable over the long term.5.Kahn needs to go.
