Kahn prefers Love?

3

So what does Minnesota want for Al Jefferson. GM David Kahn made it pretty clear in postseason comments Jefferson is not a go to star since Kahn said the team needs one. He also said the team learned Jefferson and Kevin Love do not complement one another, and the talk is coach Kurt Rambis prefers Love for his triangle system. It also seems like the team will take a shot with Darko Milicic. "I think we've all learned it doesn't work with them playing heavy minutes together," Kahn told local reporters. "We've learned, even though it doesn't show in wins and losses, how helpful it is to have a 7-footer with Darko's skill set, particularly how he can block shots. That now is locked. We'll have to have something like that." It’s why the Timberwolves earlier this season were said to have sought Joakim Noah for Jefferson. Obviously, that won’t happen, though Kahn has denied such rumors. Minnesota has cap space, but no one expects any major free agent to go there. So they’d likely look to trade for players with their space. Michael Beasley? Luol Deng? David Lee? Monta Ellis? You figure the Timberwolves will be quite active again.
