With only these 9 guys i don't think alternating the line ups is going to do much. I think we're damned if we do and damned if we don't. Shved, AK, and Luke are all looking worn out from having to carry the load too long.

The thing that will change is as Rubio's minutes increase, someone else's will decrease. Shved being an obvious candidate. Also Williams is more capable of big minutes than Cunningham IMO. It puts those two back in roles they are comfortable in. That's what alternating the lineups can do.

Hopefully they will bring in JellyBall or someone similar who will be more capable of spelling AK as well.

As a bucks fan, just wondering if this guy is available? Seems like you could use a big man like Udoh for him

No he is not available. He's part of the core: Rubio/Shved/Love/Pekovic

So, are ya'll under the persuasion that he's just hit a wall b/c he's been worn out b/c he's had to play so much due to injuries in the back court? Or do ya'll think he was just really hot to start the season and this is who he is?

IMO, I think he's just worn out right now and teams have sort of figured out his game. It's up to him to adjust now and keep improving.


Btw, the Wolves Shop now has Shved t-shirts available. :D

He looks worn out to me. Just watch his body language. He'll fight through it, though, but he needs some help at the two spot.

Do ya'll think he's for sure going to remain a Wolf the next few years?

Does anyone see him being traded this season in any circumstances?

I've wanted a Shved jersey or T-shirt since we signed him, but they just now became available. But with all these rumors of Minnesota making a move, I don't want to buy one, then him get shipped away.

He's here for awhile IMO. Only way he would get moved is if we're putting him in a package to get a better SG (which I don't see happening).

Shved is not getting traded. He is an UNDRAFTED ROOKIE with a good contract, solid production, and a big upside. There is no way they get proper value for him in a trade.

He was not supposed to be this good this soon, and definitely wasn't supposed to be playing this many starter's minutes this soon. He is hitting the wall, because he has been asked to play way too many minutes so far.

The team is having trouble with players lacking chemistry due to having to basically piece weird lineups together and they have some players like Shved playing way more minutes vs starters than he should be expected to this early in his NBA career.

No.

SG (and wings in general) is the Wolves' biggest need by far. There's zero (ZERO!!!!) chance that we're going to trade away our only 2 and make the position even weaker.

Unless Shved is a throw-in in a deal for a superstar he won't be traded. And it's not very likely we're going to trade for a superstar anytime soon.

Although I'd love to see what kind of value a Love + Shved package has league-wide.

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.
