Canis Pulsus - Vol. 2

New, comments

The draft and big free agency waves are over. Thoughts?

If anyone predicted that the Minnesota Timberwolves would look like this, then please share your crystal ball with me. Although the IRL draft and majority of free agency is over, the all-important Canis Hoopus hivemind has yet to speak their opinions on the latest NBA transactions.

Behold: Canis Pulsus Vol. 2

For those of you who missed the week leading up the draft and are wondering what the flynn I’m talking about — this series is designed to give our Canis Hoopus community a published voice.

A pulse, if you will.

We all know that if CH occupied all seats of the Minnesota Timberwolves front office, we would be celebrating our 30th consecutive championship this year. So now is your time to play armchair GM. From the 2020 NBA Draft, to free agency, to pre-season predictions, we want to hear from you.

It’s a simple concept, really. Just submit your vote as honestly or sarcastically as you would like. All individual submissions will remain anonymous so no one will know if you were the one voter who wanted to trade for Andrew Wiggins back. Once the polls close, the results as a whole will be published on Canis Hoopus and (in theory) be submitted to Gersson Rosas for feedback.
