Amoundson backing him up is a slap into the face of the human extinction.


I believe that while SG is clearly a need, we have a bigger need for a back-up center. Ridnour .. as poorly as he fits as a back-up SG, plays that position better than Steimsma or Amundson play back-up center. If Pek goes down and Steimsma actually start, our team should be ridiculed.

We obviously need a better center off the bench. Steamer can be nice off the bench occasionally but I cringe at the very thought of him starting the next few games. Lou backing him up will be even worse. The next few games will be pick-our-poison games :(

And yes, I agree with you wholeheartedly.

When Gelabale, I expect he will only get garbage minutes for the Wolves for the next ten days.

So yes, he could be a starter.

It's officially official now, FIBA clearance and all

The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has signed forward Mickael Gelabale to a 10-day contract.

Gelabale, 6-7, began this season playing in Croatia for Cedevita Zagreb in the EuroLeague and Adriatic League. In 10 EuroLeague games, Gelabale averaged 12.8 points on 60.5 percent shooting, including 42.1 percent from beyond the arc.
