according to AP agency, Alexey Shved has reached an agreement with minnesota and could be confirmed between next days..
i think this is great news for t-wolves fans, this guy is a really good player, long, skilled, athletic and can play either PG or SG.
I've seen him many times and as for me, if he gaines weight he can be special. It will be interesting how will Adelman use him. For me he's capable of playing both guard positions and even as a small forward. He could struggle with defending stronger small forwards at the beginning but as I said, if he adds some muscles he will a very good player. Cant wait to see him in a Timberwolves uniform.
I like this move for the Wolves. He adds more size and versatility to the backcourt. But this must be a sign of more things to come. As in, trading a pg or two. But then again, Kahn is rumored to have made an offer to John Lucas III, as well. He may just be acquiring as many guards and forwards as possible. But in all seriousness, there must be at least another move or two Kahn is planning - I hope. This team is way to overloaded with PG and SF. They must be planning for subtraction at some point. But overall, I think Shved will fit well as a back-up to Rubio, and I can definitely see them playing together. The pace those two would play at would be sick!
The Grizzlies were after him to but I will take Bayless. I think that last playoff spot in the West will come down to the T Wolves and Jazz. With this guy along with Brandon Roy, Chase Budinger, and a full season of Ricky Rubio I like the T Wolves' chances. It could also give us
a Lakers-T Wolves first round matchup which will be awesome. Some great matchups too, with Love vs. Pau, Bynum vs. Pek, Kobe vs. Brandon Roy and Nash vs. Rubio. And possibly another interesting matchup at the 3 between Metta and Derrick Williams.
