Our friends over at Wages of Wins lay out the average wins produced for each draft position. The kicker- the #9 spot delivers the best Wins Produced Per Dollar Spent ratio of any slot in the draft! Screw trading up! Lets stay at #9.
Sorry if this is a re-post. Came across DX's mock and was surprised to see them having the Wolves take Zeller at 9. Would the logic here be to take Zeller so they can let Pek walk? Or sign and trade for Pek? Also surprised to see them have the Wolves take Rice (SF) at 26 instead of a SG. Thoughts?
The new deal for Flip Saunders should be made official by Friday.— Jon Krawczynski (@APkrawczynski) May 2, 2013
AP Sports Guy Jon Krawczynski reporting Flip in, Kahn out is done deal.
Hi guys, Kings fan here and a first time poster here. We just survive the relocation saga, and it appears there are rumors Hensen talked to Taylor on purchase......
Read this article (please)... I just read it and found the last line about Phil Jackson and Glen Taylor's "no comment" as the best way to start a rumor out there... I'm not sure that I'd want him over Adelman, or how all of that would even work out if Adelman is staying (which I hope he does). Anyhow - I figured those of you with stronger opinions and more knowledge than I have would be curious about this.
According to NBA.com, Minnesota Timberwolves president of basketball operations David Kahn has been fired. But here's the twist... Flip Saunders will likely replace him. According to the report, Saunders, 58, and Wolves owner Glen Taylor have met several times over the past few weeks and are in the process of negotiating a contract that would run through 2018. The Wolves were 89-223 during Kahn's tenure which, in fairness, included key injuries to Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio and Chase Budinger. But missing on high draft picks Jonny Flynn, Wes Johnson and others was always a staple of Kahn's time in the front office. More in link.
