Kahn not using cap space next season?

David Kahn about a month ago implied he may not make any significant moves (beyond the draft) to improve the team before next season (such as using cap space). I just saw another comment that gives me the same impression:

Sam Amick: Wolves content to wait for Rubio in the Sacramento Bee.

In the article about Rubio, Kahn mentioned he thinks the Wolves are three or four years away and will then explode as a contender (I'm paraphrasing). This is not the kind of comment someone would make if he were planning on using cap space to bring in a dynamic player this summer, or at the deadline in February. I am sure Kahn would pull the trigger if offered a ridiculous deal, but otherwise it appears the cap space will not be leveraged for at least another year.

My belief is Kahn will bring in a couple more draft choices this year, have another tough (learning?) season, then perhaps make a splash in 2011.

If next season starts and all the Wolves have done is add a couple rookies (let's assume one is not Wall), how will you feel? Can you suffer through another 30 win season with a reduced payroll? Do you still expect Kahn to make a big move before the deadline or next summer despite what he just said to Amick? If Kahn does continue to lower the payroll for another year and only brings in a couple rookies, will you still support "The Plan"?
