Saunders' mystery hero player was Tayshaun Prince

Per Doogie @ ESPN1500

Before adding Corey Brewer for the mid-level exception, the Wolves had an opportunity to acquire Memphis forward Tayshaun Prince for minimal in return. The 33-year-old has two years and approximately $14 million left on his contract. He played for Saunders in Detroit.

Also of interest RE: JJ Redick:

The Wolves like O.J. Mayo, who signed a 3-year, $24 million deal with Milwaukee. However, they came to the conclusion that he and point guard Ricky Rubio wouldn't be the best match. A source said that Mayo wants the ball in his hands more so than Martin or another free agent shooter the Wolves pursued, J.J. Redick. On Redick: word is he was on board with being a Timberwolf. They just couldn't swing a sign-and-trade deal as beneficial as the Clippers did. A Wolves source didn't cave, but conjecture based on the timeline of events suggests that Redick was slightly favored over Martin.

Not sure what the motivation for passing on Prince in favor of Brewer would be if the asking price really was minimal. Maybe they wanted a guy Adelman refused to give up? Dunno. But looks like Prince was indeed our Stitch wanna-be

One last time TO THE RESCUE

(Also, Redick was my #1 free agent this offseason, due to being a bit younger and a much better facilitator than Martin. Saw him easily filling the Doug Christie role. But he chose LAC and it's not like Martin is anything to complain about.)
