Lin played okay in ATL, but he couldn’t even get rotation minutes in TOR, which is worrisome.

I’m not going to stress over the back up PG position (or back up C, for that matter). We have one starter-quality PG, and one promising back up. We might want to give Culver some minutes as a third stringer. Finally, the NBA market is full of teams with too many PG’s, who would be willing to trade if we get really desperate.

There will be trades, just not sure who or for what yet.

I have a feeling something is going to take place in a day or two. The signings are steadily rolling in and my money is on Wiggins and Teague heading out. For what? I have no idea! But not Westbrook.

Nuggets send FRP for Jerami Grant?

Culver not being allowed to play SL makes me think he's gone already.

Hope you are right. Maybe. I don't know for sure because they won't let me see him play.

Tyus? Mitch Creek?

Not sure what the numbers are looking like, but I think if Tyus is gone, we'll have room for sure unless Ty Wallace was the 15th guy with Tyus not included to the roster

Of everything known so far, I believe Bell is the only piece of news not announced by the team yet

Teague / Wallace / Napier
Okogie / Culver / Nowell
Wiggins / Layman / Graham
Covington / Bates-Diop / Vonleh
Towns / Dieng / Bell

Graham certainly appears to be the weak link in that lineup. However, with a now 90% guaranteed contract can we afford to dump him?

Oh great. Who's bright idea was bringing him in with a guranteed deal? We need to make room for budding SL studs.

14 NBA teams attended a workout in Las Vegas featuring Amare Stoudemire and Monta Ellis, according to Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports.

The two players are hoping to make their return to the NBA.

The teams included the Lakers, Clippers, Warriors, Knicks, Thunder, Bucks, Pistons, Wizards, Kings, Nuggets, Blazers, Magic, Hawks, and Timberwolves.

He'll probably be looking mostly at playoff teams, but he's the type of vet I'd like to bring in on a cheap deal

I've always liked him, but I don't know if he has anything left. Cook took his spot in the rotation didn't he?

I like him better than Bell.

I like those Kentucky players and liked Lyles, but he's been a disappointment.

Guessing they were looking at shooting, but I think we'd be interested in his ability as a facilitator and defender.

Oh boy. So Livingston is ok, but oodles of others out there are off limits. The guy has had an epic career after coming back from what happened to him. But he stiffed the Wolves interest when making his comeback and it probably cost him years of bouncing around. I would rather give Jimmer a chance. Livingston had a good run and is the picture of perseverance, but he won't take a 3pt shot. I'm really getting tired of watching Wolves PG's who refuse to shoot. I would rather have them miss than avoid taking it for what that does to the team. (You listening Teague?)
These are my opinions.
