So we don't get an exception for Lee for the rest of the season? Crap. 10 day is better than nothing but not much as there are many of the best FA available that won't play only for a 10 day. If we can't get any better than Lazar it won't help us any really.

“@MarkRemme: Kahn: "With Lazar now departed, we need someone who can ideally play 2-3." Also w/ Pek out 7-10 days, thin at center spot. #Twolves”


Gelabale is the 2/3, who's the big? Whiteside? Jordan?

Oden? :D

“@DarrenWolfson: The #Twolves have said no to Kenyon Martin a couple times this year, but he makes sense now if the objective is winning & not development. Birdman could fall into that category too. If they want to develop a guy, scouts say Jerome Jordan (best D-League center)."

“@DarrenWolfson: Source says Chris Johnson is the newest Wolf. Will sign a 10-day. They're passing on Jerome Jordan. #twolves”


Johnson was our last training camp cut.

As someone who has been to the NBA before, Santa Cruz Warriors center Chris Johnson has been more relaxed than some of his younger teammates about getting his next chance at the NBA.

Perhaps it's that calm that approach to things that helped the long and athletic 6-foot-11 center get a coveted NBA call-up by the Minnesota Timberwolves today: whereas younger players might try to impress by making spectacular individual plays, Johnson has consistently focused on playing within the team concept on both ends of the floor as he alluded to in describing the experience of playing in front of NBA scouts in Reno recently, where he got an honorable mention for his performance.

"Really [the D-League Showcase] is not that different for me, but for guys that's new to this, it probably is," Johnson said after recording 18 points and six rebounds in the Warriors' win against the Tulsa 66ers at Kaiser Permanente Arena on Sunday. "It can be a little nerve-wracking - you could get a little nervous. You don't have a crowd there - it's just scouts there...Just play as a team. Sometimes guys want to do more individual stuff but that's not what scouts want to see. They want to see what you can do within the offense and certain decisions you make in certain situations."

Of course, Johnson is not without a highlight reel of spectacular plays of his own: from big blocks to monster dunks, Johnson has had his share of eye-catching moments. But what always seemed to stand out about Johnson as a NBA prospect was his ability to find gaps in the defense to find scoring opportunities for his high-release jumper, his ability to run the floor, and the instincts that make him a solid weakside shot blocker.

Bring on the Birdman. I wouldn't mind Martin either. Rather him start over Cunningham. Williams is going to be gone.

Oh nvm I thought that story was linked after we signed Johnson. Late night.

Anyways, I'm not sure how this is going to workout for us. Johnson is meh. I understand wanting to only give out 10 day contracts but this is kind of depressing (signing d-league scrubs and hoping they make some kind of impact.) Guys like Martin & Birdman would at least be solid starters on our team right now. I know Birdman can outplay Steamer and Cunningham can go back to the bench to play with 2nd unit. Oh well, financial reasons.

Birdman is a bad seed, all those tattoos and such. As for Kenyon, he's a bad seed too, all those tattoos and such.

Chris Johnson is the right guy for the team. He's a threat to take it to the house every time he touches the ball.

Probably more trade flexibility reasons than anything.

We'll ignore the tattoos Pek, Rubio and Kirilenko have then.
