Timberwolves President of Basketball Operations David Kahn will chat with Wolves fans during Wednesday night's game against Oklahoma City. Watch the game on FOX Sports North -- Qwest Wolves Live begins at 6:30 p.m. -- and join David for a chat during the second and third quarters.
Any consensus questions we can stuff the ballot box with?
2 things I'd like to know:
1. Are the Wolves planning on really spending money this summer either via FA or by taking on a veteran contract? There are several people who believe the Wolves aren't going to spend the money based on some cirumstantial quotes pieced together from Kahn these past few months. This flys in the face of his "16 month" makeover he's talked about. I'd like some firming up on this point.
2. How are the Wolves planning to position themselves as far as maximizing cap space and the current roster? Picking up Brewer's option seems to have pushed us close to suboptimal cap space given that the threshold will likely drop again to the $52-53 million range. It's surely too pointed to say "we're going to have to trade Gomes, Hollins etc., but some more info would help sort out what they're thinking about where their cap will come in at. A more direct question might be: "What do you project your committed salaries to come in at next summer with an estimated cap of $53 million?" Provide a link to any of several salary sites out there???
