He's not available, and there are around a million arguments for that, and probably none against.

I agree with some poster here who said that the Grizz offer was Gay for Kirilenko+Shved (that´s exactly the move that makes more sense for them in terms of improving short term production and going under the cap at the same time).

According to sources the Wolves rejected that offer inmediatly. Kirilenko, as good of a player he is, is technicaly an expiring in a year when they don´t look like making the POs (f****** injuries, this season was promising).

The main reason Shved would never be traded is that he's the only guy Kahn can point to when critics say he can't evaluate young talent.

--Porter said there might be a silver lining in Alexey Shved’s ankle injury, which will keep him out of his fourth straight game tonight. Shved, a rookie from Russia, was showing signs of fatigue in the games before his injury. Porter said Shved might be able to take advantage of this down time to recharge a little bit.

“Hopefully, with the time off, he’ll come back fresher,” Porter said. “His legs will be stronger. He seemed to need that. Normally they get that at the All-Star break. But he’s gotten it a little earlier.”

Sucks he's not playing this trip. But I was thinking that, too. He was really wearing down, especially b/c of the amount of minutes he was logging due to all of the injuries in the back court. Hopefully when he does come back, we'll see the first 20 games of Shved and not the past couple of weeks.

I was shocked as well that he held up as long as he did - he came in looking to just get on the floor, then ends up with rediculous minutes due to injuries. With Rubio playing more and more I think we have a chance to use Shved and Ridnour more as guys who will have a alot of opportunity to catch-n-shoot 3's ...

- Don’t you get bored here, having moved from Moscow? Minneapolis is such a quiet city.

- Actually, I already got used to everything. I feel comfortable, I like it here… I had my good share of fun in the past, so I can be leading a quiet life now. Of course I knew that people like basketball here, but I couldn’t imagine to what extent… It’s even hard to explain, how good it feels to be playing here. Fans would approach you, ask for a photo, they talk in a nice manner. Here, there are no people who would annoy you and ask some nonsense questions. Everyone is good and nice.

Alexey had just 2 good games in last 10 or so +rising stars game. He really have potential and he can shoot MUCH better than in his last games. I hope he gain back his confidence. He is my favorite player in Minnesota along with Pec, AK47 and Rubio.

I think he'll be solid for us going forward past this season, but he hasn't been good lately.

I don't mind just playing the guys we are going to have past this year through their struggles and let them develop in Adelman's system. We should be playing Rubio & Shved, Williams. More Chris Johnson.

You are a dumbass :roll: At the beginning of the season when almost everybody in Minnesota was injured we won a lot of games just because of Shved. He was great back then and Rubio played like **** his first games when he returned! Now Shved has a bad period but i guarantee you he is a great player and he will be back and he has all the potential. Yes Rubio is better than him but Shved is very close when it comes to skills. Rubio is better passer but Shved has it all. Rubio must learn how to shoot. Shved hasn't any weaknesses really. But i agree that Rubio is still slighty better player than Shved at this moment. But i like them both really.

If i remember correctly Minnesota was at one point better than 0.5 team when Rubio was sitting on the bench and Shved playing. What happening now? We are like 4-14 last games or something i don't even remember.

Problem is, when Rubio doesn't shoot well he can make up for it with assists, steals, charge-taking, pesky defense. Shved has a harder time making up for shooting slumps.

And 5+ turnovers? Shved can pass too but of course when rubio get the ball everytime when Minnesota starts attacking he will have a lot of assists(same reason he have that much turnovers) and Shved has very litlle time with the ball. Rubio even get a lot of rebounds sometimes just because other players let him to have it to start attack.
