Timberwolves offseason Ideas.
The Timberwolves really gotta say what they gonna do for Kevin Love.Kevin love eats of rebounds and &$#%#&@! outs put-backs. And knock down the 3 ball. They need to get a better point guard and this offseason they have the chance to get Kyrie Irving, or Ricky Rubio. And some say we need a better scorer at the 2 . Which means replacing Wesly Johnson at are Shooting Guard spot but I think David Kahn is saying give Wesly Johnson some time cause he is still learning the ways to play in the NBA. And with that being said I think Flynn would probably come off are bench he has more quickness and better ball handling and he has good chemistry with the team. And atill has potiental to start. But not in the Rambis Offense system. Probably with a differnt that idea would work for Flynn but highly not in Rambis control as coach.
1.Luker Ridnour.- He is a Pg to come off the bench, He has nice ball handling and looks to pick and roll with kevin Love and shoots the mid-range jumper when he has a open shot. He plays a oky defense but he is more offensively . But, with us having the chances to have Kyrie Irving or Ricky Rubio is nice for next season in the wolves fabor cause they will have a boost at the Point Guard spot.
2.Wesly Johnson- Are starting SG. he is 6'8 he doenst really have good ball handling but has a nice pull up jumper at the 3pt mark.He doesnt force alot of shoots he tends to shoot alot of bricks. He needs to start knocking down shoots and stop passing the ball up to Beasly and Ridnour. If he doesnt show up by next season look for Martell Webster to take his Spot.
3.Micheal Beasly - He is are second team leading scorer. I think we need to trade Beasly he is a talented offesive player but, he need too be on another team a team that can make it to the playoffs every year to reach his potential. But get forreal we need a better C. And Beasly is the only player we could get talent for. Beasly depends too much on his long mid-randge shots. He trys to shoot alot and less post up . And he doesnt take the ball in when the defense is set. But, goes in for the attttack on the fastbreak.But Beasly is still a scorer he just needs to develop his game more this offseason and improve his conditiong and bulk up so he can stick SF. like Paul Peirce,Carmelo,Lebron, etc. He and needs to improve on he defense low post and 1 on 1 defense.
4. Kevin Love- The rebound machine. he gets alot of his points off putbacks and low-post shot. He also knocks down the 3pt shoot. speciallyin the pick and roll. This offseason Love needs to improve his defense And needs to work on the pick and roll more and try to get in the paint and gain the foul. So he can really play his game at getting to the freethrow line. This offseason Love will ask for Ricky Rubio cause Kyrie Irving will try to score too much on a team that makes the point distrubute then score the basket.
5. Darkio Milic- Darkio is a defensive Big man but he needs to come off the bench for the timberwolves. Look for us to sign a FA c. This offseason
The wolves bench is JohnNY fLYNN who is a very fast Pg. He has the quickness to dominant in the pick and roll. And he bring excitement with his passes to change the energy of the ball game.He has the quickness to stay with his man but he needs to add some more size show he wont be bullied by bigger Pg. Anthony Randolf is a defensive PF who can knock down mid-randge shots and can grab the rebound and push the ball up the court as a PointForward. And sometime in the game he can play C from time to time. Martell Webster is a pure offensive player he can knock down the 3pt shoot but he has had problems with injurys but if he gets back in shape he can probably take the starting SG spot if Wesly Johnson dont improve next season.WAYNE ellington is a player i have respect for on the timberwolves but he would not be a wolves player next season.
I been saying for a while that we should draft Derrick Williams. He can be are starting Sf. We can trade Beasly for a decent C. Derrick Williams has the ability to get to the rim and dunk. he can also get in post shot form and take the post shot. he has a huge side of potential with his size and not taking dumn shots but will attack when he has too cause the team needs a bucket in that possesion.
Beasly gotta go Beasly needs to be on another team he is the only peice we can afford to give up and receive something in return that could help us. Beasly is a good young player. A team s gonna want him . A that team will have to have a SG. OR C
If we dont have the chance to draft Derrick Williams we will and not have to trade Beasly. Im trying to tel yall this if it comes down to us selecting between Derrick Williams and Micheal Beasly. Derrick Williams is the choice. Beasly is a good player but Derrick Williams will fit in more with his athletism and toughness to attack the basket. Beasly would just be a go to scorer . And why Beasly would have to leave cause we would need a Sg. Who can score like a J.R smith , O.j Mayo kind of player and Beasly is a player we can get something in return for
Kyrie Irving- We dont need Irving we have Ricky Rubio and in tis offense Rubio fits in more cause he doesnt try to score but pass too his teammates and in this system the Pg doesnt have to be a go to scorer but more of a defensive player and distrubute the ball around.
Ricky Rubio- The day he signs a contract with us he would be are starting PG. cause of his abilty to distrubte the ball to his teammates. And this kind of player would help build chemistry anround a team of plaers who hhas atheltism abilty to attack the basket and knock down shots.
If you want to trade Beasley for a big man it is not happening. Why because a trade of equal value would mean a Center that is pretty good. Consequently this means the center is very valuable to his current team and therefore no team would want to gice up thier center even if they get Beasley in return. The Center is one of the most important positions in the NBA. Without a Center that team would not be able to defend the inside. So I don't see Beasley being traded for a center. Maybe he could be traded for a SG. But that would mean that Wesley Johnson would have to come off the bench at the 3 or the 2.
Or you could trade Beasley for a SG draft Enes Kanter, start him and Love together and then start Johnson at the 3 and then whoever the Wolves get in exchange for Beasley can start at the 2.
Bottom line: Beasley is not being traded for a Center. He will most likely be traded for a Shooting Guard
Warb is 6'10 he is a bit undersized. But, they say he plays aggresive but idk.
We can trade Beasly for a C. The kings willl probably offer Samuel Dalembert for Beasly and they can draft Enes Kanter. This trade would benefit us with a player that is a veteran and plays solid defense. We will have to take a deep heavy contract in Dalembert. But he would be a upgrade from Darkio Milic.
And with are first pick we will have the 1-2 pick. But with anyone of those we would select Derrick Williams. So he can replace the missing spot Beasly left at the SF position. He is another Beasly they say but Williams will post up his oppent and he has the quickness to take it in or take the post shot. He also have the abilty to dribble the ball to take it in for the pull jumper or attack the rim. We cant go wrong with a young player who doesnt lose his cool like Beasly and by drafting Williams he will fall in love with Minnesota and will stay unlike Beasly who wasnt drafted by us and he might leave us when he has the chance to be a FA.
This might give us a set back at a go to scorer but we will have the chance to sign a scorer SG FA. like J,r Smith, Jr Smith might sign with us cause if he goes to are team he has the playmaker abilty to be a star on this team. instead of being a scoring role player. Like he would be playing for a team like the BULLS,KNICKS, AND we have enough cap space to offer him alot of money.
all this can and will happen for us.
1.Ricky Rubio, flynn or ridnour
2.J.r Smith(FA), Wesly Johnson
3.Derrick Williams, Martell Webster
4.Kevin Love, Anthony Randolf
5.Samuel Dalembert(Trade), Darkio Milic
Are winning will increase this season with this rotation
I don't think that will happen. The Kings still want Dalembert because he can teach DMC, Whiteside and Jason Thompson some things. That's why the Kings got Dalembert in the first place. Besides Dalembert is a free agent this year so a trade cannot happen unless it is a sign and trade, which is even more unlikely to happen.
Yes, I realize that Kanter is only 6'10 but he also is the only shot that the Wolves have at getting a Center. People don't realize this but the Center position is the hardest to get in the NBA whether its through the draft or free agency or trades. Teams just don't want to give up their defensive centers. (I'm assuming that's the kind of Center the Wolves want). And for good reason too. Without their defensive Center that team will not be able to defend the inside as well and therefore more games will be lost. Big Man for Big Man, you'll see that all the time, but small forwardm shooting guard, or point guard for Center, you will hardly ever see that. (Possibly never) There aren't too many good free agent centers available this year. And the one's that are available will likely go to winning teams. (they are old and will soon retire. They will likely spend their last few years trying to get a championship) I'm sorry but the Wolves just aren't one of those teams and they will not be one next year. The only real shot the Wolves have at getting a Center is to draft Enes Kanter. He may be a little small, but at least he is more defensive than Darko is. He may consider himself more a PF but he can still play Center and survive. Like I said, he may very well be the only shot the Wolves have at getting a Center. They might as well take him while they still can, otherwise they will have to deal with Darko starting at Center.
Just because the Wolves have the best chance of getting the first pick, does not mean they will. Their is a 75% chance the Wolves don't get the first pick. They might not even get the second pick. (The Nets had the best chance at winning the lottery last year and they ended up with the 3rd pick) And actually if the Wolves do get the first or second pick like you hope then Kanter still might be the best player to go for. Before this year he was known as a bigman powerhouse. The only reason why he is not considered a #1 pick this year is because he was declared ineligible for College play and so he has not gotten to play in over a year. But you never know what can happen in workouts. He could really impress in workouts and thus move his stock up to the #1 pick again.
Having a lot of money available does not always mean that you will have a good team next year. That team also has to have the right management that knows what players to go after. (look at the Pistons in 2009 offseason. What did they get for all the money left over from AI, Ben Gordon and Charlie Villanueva. In other words, crap. Why did this happen because they had management that didn't really know what players he needed to go after to make his team better. I'm afraid the Wolves have this same bad management. To prove this I'll use last year as an example. Last year the Wolves also had a lot of cap money. Who'd they use it on, MIchael Beasley, Darko Milicic, brought over Nikolov Pekovic, Martell Webster, Luke Ridnour, and of course their draft picks. Where did that get them, with an even worse record then the year before. Just because the Wolves have cap money does not mean they will use it wisely.
