Averaged 7.3 rpg in 29 mpg (8.9 per36). Taj Gibson, who many Wolves fans want back, averaged 8.5 per36 in his two seasons here.

Why are ppl oppose to signing Whiteside? Would be huge signing if he takes MLE.. Guy avg 15 and 10 and 3 blocks per game. So how about RHJ and whiteside to solidify our defense?

Just trade Omari Spellman to the Cleveland Cavaliers and bring back Jordan Bell who never got a fair shake at playing time here. He was effective at the 4 next to Towns but last year they were in love with small ball.

Rosas seems to have switched his stance on that mentioning how the Champion Lakers took advantage and win the title with two bigs.

I don't buy it. What in the current roster construction says he's switched his stance?


He said during the draft, he wouldn’t be afraid to draft Wiseman because if you look at the champs aka the lakers, they proved it can be done and be effective playing two bigs together.

Come on Rosas.. Sign whiteside and Rhj if we're gonna stop anyone from obliterating us on offense.

I will say this, if they believe Vanderbilt can handle the 3, then no reason to sign RHJ.Vanderbilt is only 6'9 about 210, but is long and very athletic. Known for defense and rebounding, and can handle a bit. So, maybe part of the lack of urgency is trust in this guy. We will see.

Don’t see the fascination with RHJ

Dude is under sized and can’t shoot.

Show this guy real love!





Trade Evans, Spellman, future SRP for nothing. Sign Martin to 2way. Craig to Layman deal with second and third year non-guaranteed. Juancho and JMac to Layman deal.

I don't think Craig is a 4.

Assuming the team signs Juancho I do think the PF spot is basically set. He's the vet to help us win games and Vanderbilt is the young guy they want to develop with minutes. Sprinkle in some McDaniels since there's likely no G League and there's your 48 minutes.

One name I'd throw out though is Markieff Morris. Just won a championship with the Lakers and has been a stretch 4 for a few years now. He's not a sexy name but he seems like a solid vet that won't break the bank.

Craig is not ideal fit at PF, but it is workable solution. Just to have an idea about our 1-3-1 implementation, last year we started KAT-RoCo-Graham-Wiggins-Teague. With regards to Morris I would stay away from him, since he is kind of headache case both on the floor and on the floor.

Really we have the opportunity to sign H.Whiteside????

I am non very keen on salary cap, BAE MLE etc...but really could we sign him??

Rubio, Spellman, Nowell and a pick for Aaron Gordon. It clears the huge mistake bringing Rubio back and it gives MClaughin his deserved playing time.

DLo, MC Laughin
Edwards, Beasley
Josh, Culver

Great find Klomp. Juancho is a quite solid rebounder.


Well the only reason some of us would not mind Gordon is because he needs a change of scenery and playing with legit playmaking pointguards like Ricky and Dlo for the first time in his entire career might help him FINALLY live up to his offensive potential and he is an improvement defensively. I would want to keep Juancho though he would be big off the bench.

If we could afford Markieff it would be a no brainer to do so, but I don't think we can.

I'm ready to consider you a Troll. Bringing Rubio back is the opposite of a mistake. Great player that meets our needs very well.

Sign these guys to add some depth. Glen Robinson iii, frank Kaminsky, and wcs

Dlo/Rubio
Edward/Okogie
GRIII/Culver
Huancho/Kaminsky/Layman
Towns/WCS

Better than nth lol...

Or like some poster said.. Ship Rubio out straight for Aaron Gordon. They just lost DJ Augustin. So they'll need a extra PG.

Aaron Gordon got 17 pts, 12 ast, and 11 rebs and the Magic beat the Wolves.
