Marko's Journey

On August 12, 2005, the Minnesota Timberwolves traded Sam Cassel and a future 1st round pick to the Los Angeles Clippers for Marko Jaric.

On June 26, 2008, the Minnesota Timberwolves traded Marko Jaric, Greg Buckner, O.J. Mayo, and Antoine Walker to the Memphis Grizzlies for Kevin Love, Brian Cardinal, Jason Collins, and Mike Miller.

Will Marko Jaric be involved in the best and worst trades in Timberwolves history? Will Our Beloved Puppies trade Sam Cassell and Anthony Davis for Marko Jaric (and Kevin Love)?

Are these the best and worst trades in franchise history? Doesn't the fact that Marko helped bring about Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio (via Mike Miller) make it all worthwhile?

FWIW, I think the Marko trade has significantly downgraded from Clippergeddon to meh territory. Love and Rubio have likely made even the loss of Anthony Davis palatable. It's been a rough and bumpy road, but no matter what happens tonight, the Wolves will have likely made peace with Marko.
