Sorry guys KAT is overrated. His defense is horrible as proven during the playoffs. KAT is not someone to build around he is a one dimensional player.

I have so many rebuttals, but most I would get in trouble for. Lol Thank you for your kind insight.

If true, Pacers would be a great fit. Get Turner and a couple picks out of the deal

Get rid of Thibs, trade Wiggins for a ball return chute, draft Grayson Allen for some outside shooting and get a young coach in the Stevens/Snyder mold.

First get someone to buy the team from Taylor, the worst owner in the league.

James Dolan takes great offense to this statement.

Any word as to what's caused this possible rift?

I would like to see a trade Leonard vs. Towns, if Leonard doesn't want to stay in SA. Just if...

Damn man, if Kawhi has a foot out the door, yes, do it.

Wolves would need to dump Wiggins though.

It would probably have to be for a salary dump. Idk, like Cleveland giving you a pick and Tristan Thompson, but then you have the same problem as before.

I wrote something approximating this toward the beginning of the season and was laughed at.

He’s officially a liability.

If you can convince the wolves of this and have them send him to Utah for anyone/thing not named Donovan/Rudy, I’d be much obliged.

With Wiggins, the signs have been there since very early on. Not enough effort. Not enough intensity. Wrong coach. Wrong franchise (apologize twolves fans, I don’t mean to be unkind)

I just think people here stuck up for him for so long because of ulterior motives.

Get rid of Thibs and get someone to actually develop KAT and Wiggins.

This is spot on

Wonder if KAT to PHX would be a good trade! PHX#1 pick for KAT, maybe good for both teams?

Yep. Wiggins prices were absolutely insane during the 14-15 season. People thought he was the second coming of Kobe.... turns out he’s more like Melo.

I'm not sure Wiggins is such a lost cause, but that contract is crazy.

You just can't afford to do that to your franchise.

5-7 million should be shaved off that salary. Just nuts. That's not gonna be good for team morale either, especially when he's giving 15-20 million production.

But I'm sure there's some teams that would believe he'd be a good fit. Right now he's Harrison Barnes, is that a fair assessment? But his ceiling is still solid.

Minny may get scared and trade KAT though, if they went soon, they would get an incredible haul.

Phoenix for the #1 pick or Sacramento for #2 pick + a couple of their young guys is interesting for both sides, but my guess is Minnesota would look to send the #1/2 to somebody else for a superstar now.

Boston would love to get in I'm sure but Wolves would ask for Tatum + extras, I think Celtics would give up Brown plus 2019 pick.

Philly for Saric + Fultz + 10th pick but does he fit with Embiid.

My Pacers could only offer Turner + picks and that makes no sense for the Wolves.

A veteran sports reporter in Minnesota said Town's fit with Thibodeau has been an awkward one. He went on to say his feeling is that something is going to change this summer.

I just really hope the Wolves understand that the move is not to trade KAT. I'm fully on board with firing Thibs.

The fact that he wants no part of banging around in the post and would rather stand at the 3 point line and jack threes, all the while not playing a lick of defense is the problem. Not the coach, not the system. The fact that he is 7 feet tall and does not want to be a physical presence on the court is problematic. I realize the game is shifting more to a perimeter style, but with his gifts, he can dominate, but he would rather Manute Bol than Hakeem Olajuwon.
