Kahn is a Moron

I think everyone needs to review our roster and answer this simple question...

 

"How long will it be until the Wolves contend for a championship?"

 

Because after looking at our roster and our salary cap info, I believe we are F'd. We'll discuss under the jump...

Here is our current 2010/11 roster...

PG: Flynn/Sessions

SG: Webster/Brewer/Ellington

SF: W. Johnson/Hayward

PF: Love/Pekovic

C: Milicic/Pekovic/Hollins

We also have about 5 million in Salary Cap Space. It seems pretty obvious that Al will be traded so I did not include him. Wins produced would project this team to win 31 games** and that's not including whatever Al nets us in a trade. Considering the Mavs recently wouldn't consider trading Al for Dampier's contract...well I'm less then enthusiastic about what we could get for Al.

So entering 2011 what would we have?

  1. a 31 win team comprised of players mostly in their prime.
  2. Ricky Rubio (hopefully)
  3. Probably the 9th pick in the NBA Draft (if we won 31 games last year, we would have picked 9th)
  4. No Cap Space

Entering 2012 what would we have?

  1. A team that is one year older comprised of players mostly in their prime.
  2. No first round pick (Clippers)
  3. No Cap Space.

 

So my question to anyone still supporting Kahn is how does this team project to contend for a championship at any point in the next 3 years? And if we aren't trying to build a championship contender, then what the hell are we doing?

 

**(For my Wins Produced projection, I gave Wesley Johnson the equivalent of Rudy Gay in his 2nd year (.038) and NIkola Pekovic the equivalent of Luis Scola in his first year (.147)
