Wolves Updates 9/8 Part 2


Kahn at Spain's loss to Serbia and more

 

From Shaun Powell/NBA.com: Eight teams who could crash the playoffs party

Timberwolves. Well, Ricky Rubio can look at the bright side: He's not missing anything. Perhaps in a year, if he gets the itch to leave Spain for the NBA, the Wolves will be in position to make a move up the standings. Even that looks dicey for a team that just placed a good deal of faith and money in Darko Milicic. The Wolves are not built to last this season, and they'll need a good lottery pick and another addition to brighten their outlook for the season beyond. They've won 33 or fewer games the last five years and look to make it six. Too many developing players need breakout seasons -- Martell Webster, Michael Beasley, Kevin Love, Corey Brewer -- for the Wolves to shock anyone in 2010-11.

 

From John Schuhmann/NBA.com: Notes from Serbia 92, Spain 89

Timberwolves president David Kahn was in attendance on Wednesday, and he had to be pleased with what he saw from Bjelica, whose rights he traded for on draft night a couple of months ago. Bjelica was the 35th pick of the draft, and I’m sure new assistant GM Tony Ronzone  had something to do with the Wolves acquiring the 22 year old who hit all five of his shots against Spain. Ronzone is also here in Istanbul, running USA Basketball’s scouting.
