timberwolves lotto recap
The mainstream outlets are all abuzz about candidates for the Timberwolves' GM position. I know that there are a few FanShots and FanPosts that you've all posted over the weekend, but I thought a...
I caught only the last few moments of Glen Taylor's time with Sid yesterday, but he said two rather frustrating things:
In response to a question about Mike Miller, he said Miller's been a great team leader, had a great work ethic, and responded to adversity well, and that the problem is that the team's not getting him his shots. To a point-blank question about trading Miller, he responded "No, we're not going to trade Mike Miller." Talked about "the type of players we surround him with" instead.
Answering a question about Pekovic, he went over the 2-year deal and said the plan's always been to bring him over in 2010. No hint of any flexibility to the deal. Said Hoiberg was just over there, and said Pekovic was doing well there.
Other items of note:
* Flatly says Brandon Roy "turned out to be quite a player."
* Recognizes Foye is better at off guard.
* "In a hurry to get us into playoff mode."
* Saw January as a decent measure of the team.
* Next year: "My guess is" pick up two good ones, trade the third pick "to bring in someone" with the skills that we need.
* "I don't think there's any doubt" McHale will be back next year.

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said head of basketball operations Kevin McHale is not on the hot seat. "I don't put people on the hot seat," he said.
