Brewer and Rubio will be fun to watch on the fast break but the half court outside shooting could get ugly. Rick will finally have a balanced roster.

This was a pretty savvy move by Flip to get 2 guys that fill a need and only having to give up one point guard, which we needed to do anyway.

Great moves by Flip!! Now if we can get Pek in the fold, we should have a team that could make a deep run in the playoffs!!! Our projected bench consisting of Berea, Shabazz, Budinger, Williams, and Dieng is going to be better than most 2nd teams!!! Go Wolves!

Glad to have at least one defensive minded player on the team. But I will miss Mr. Ridnour. It was not his fault that he had to try and defend players out of his weight class, that blame falls to D. Kahn. I will miss his professionalism, never complaining about the fact he was set up to fail.

I feel for AK47. He evokes memories of when Spree turned down $27M because it wasn't enough to feed his family, and never played in the NBA again, never saw that $27M. I'm not saying AK will never play in the NBA again. I'm just saying he probably won't see $10M for a season, well actually less than a whole season given his injury history, at this late stage in the game, especially given his age. Everybodies big money is already spent. Is it better to play 1 year at $10M or 3 years at $20M? Good luck, AK. I hope you find what you're looking for.

No one is mentioning the real star of the reserves, Dante Cunningham. He is a very valuable member of the Timberwolves team.

Seriously? 3 years 15 million! For the drunken dribbler! I think we've seen enough of him. As far as AK, good luck getting the money you think you deserve.

REALLY? So we are on our way to becoming a playoff power now I guess. Brewer is below mediocre. His presence fills a roster spot but hardly makes any opposing team shake in their boots.

Goodbye and thanks to Luke Ridnour. He always played hard. He sometime hit a big three when we needed it. He played when hurt. He played in a role that he was unsuited to last year. I am sorry to see him go, though I know it had to be. I hope all goes well for him in Milwaukee.

I've been down on Flip for not bringing AK back but if they actually DID go to him on Tuesday and try to work something out and AK's camp didn't see the writing on the wall....then the Wolves did the right thing by moving on. Too much to pay for Corey but I like the signing from a basketball standpoint. I'll miss AK but he needs to fire his agent.
