Biggest thing is shooters. Main thing we should be focused on.

Then maybe an athletic wing player or big man. Just need some athleticism on this team.

I disagree completely. Last years team without Love (and Rubio for most of it) would have been a total collapse ... and they did without the Rube.

You cant not have balance, how are the Wolves going to succeed with no athletic players and basicaly no one who can create for themselves?

he actually has a point. lets be real here. we have way too many white unathletic players who are great passers. nobody but shved or barea can create. we have no athleticism. etc..etc..

We need a healthy Love and Budinger to determine how good this team can be. Unfortunately, It's going to have to wait till next year. Even when Love and Bud get back in mid March, I don't think they'll be 100%. They'll most certainly be rusty.

Reading other fans' replies are hilarious and head-scratching.

My, uh, favorite...

“@Peter_J_Novak: @ColbySpradlin Hard to match money there...maybe injured Brandon Roy (we'd waive him) and Alexy Shved for Marvin? I'd do that.”

Interesting. Not too surprising that we're willing to deal picks I guess.

Yeah. It would be kind of rough to lose a top 10 pick, especially if this is the year that the pick actually moves up, but this draft is awful, so I wouldn't hate it depending on the return.

I wonder if Eric Gordon could be a possibility. The Hornets sound like they might be interesting in moving him, and we could offer picks to a still rebuilding team.

Eric Gordon is the type of player that turns this team from average to very good

Eric Gordon would be perfect for our team but his knees and our history of knee issues seem like a nightmare waiting to happen.

$ 13,500,000 for the next 4 years. If we´re to build around Love, Ricky and Pek, we´ll need cheap production at the SG and SF.

I think we can only afford two more pieces: a cheap SG, to play the role that Sefolosha has in OKC (I liked M.Lee quite a lot... we´re just so unlucky...), and search for more production at the backup C spot (Stiemsma hasn´t worked as we expected and CJ could be a great 4th big, but still can´t defend without making tons of fouls).

This team is almost already done. The trio is there (with two max contracts next year in Love and pEk), and most of the secondary pieces are also already there (Barea, Shved, Buddinger, Dante, I´d even add Gelabale for his great ratio production vs. price). If you don´t like the result, blame the trio chosen to build around.

Personally, I like the team. Without injuries it should be bloody difficult to defeat.

At the very least, it doesn't hurt to find out what's available.

Putting some rumors together...

Bulls (They need to get rid of Hamilton not to be in the lux, but at this point his contract has negative value. They need an expiring on a similar contract)
Out: R.Hamilton + 1st pick
In: B.Roy

Orlando (they´re rebuilding, so two picks, one of them could be very good, and some salary relief should be good value for Afflalo)
Out: A.Afflalo
In: R.Hamilton + Minn 1st pick + Bulls 1st pick

Minnesota: (gets a huge fit in a good long contract. They´ll need to get rid of Williams and Ridnour if they want to resign Pek though)
Out: B.Roy + 1st pick
In: A.Afflalo

Chris Broussard ‏@Chris_Broussard
Toronto in need of backup PG; could be landing spot for Telfair or Minny's Luke Ridnour.

anything interesting we could snag from the raptors? I like Ross but we would obviously have to add more
