Aren't David Lee and Kevin Love redundant? Maybe this means Love is on his way out as well.

Lee is a great guy… but 14 mil...and he is not the clutch player, the game changer...a closure.
He is an undersized, hustle guy… overachiever...terrific individual almost another Love...but not with the upside of Love…and we are overstocked with small forwards or undersize power forwards.
Get real… is Love or Lee… going to play small forwards...They are not dominate power forwards...like Gasol, Tim Duncan, Garnett, Bosh...Are you going to sit Darko or Pek or have them come off the bench...when they could be a dominate forward dominate center combo…
Mr. Khan please do not let your ego and the expectations of the fans that this was such a great year in the draft and the free agency...And you have to make a Great move for a great proven marque talent...and do something just to do something.
For the Timberwolves it is not working out ...It just is not falling that way…
Lee can actually be a negative risk...taking away from Wesley, Love, Darko; and further development of ; Martrel, Hayward, Bjelicka...and others…
Mr. Khan you have made no catastrophic mistakes yet...Your assembling great young talent with terrific up sides; who will work hard to work together…bring in Lee as a multimillion marquee want to bee..and all Hell may break lose…now I may be wrong and Rambis may be all to juggle the talent. Why not stick with your plan.
You don’t have to trade Al…to it is your best interests…he is getting 13 mil. Get real...he could come off the bench...mad, mean, hungry with a point to prove; motivated to win a 6 man award; instant scoring off the bench where he is not such a defensive liability or stop the quick slashing style you want to play with your front Five / 5 ...
Gives you a different style when your ahead and want to slow the game…Darko, Pek and Al when big defensive quards; like Martrel and Hayward or Bjelika are closing down another team…
What you need is a game closure…a game winner…a proven leader with a ring…Chancey Bilupps is available…a proven winner…premier clutch player…the type of player to take control when a game is on the line…someone who can mentor young players; Johnny Flynn, Rubio, Bjelicka, Martrel, Wesely…Chauncey is already on record how he loves Darko’s potential… stated repeatedly in Detroit.

"No D" Jefferson will not be happy coming off of the bench. He believes he is a premier starter in the league with his NBA mentality that scoring is everything. The legacy of the poisonous McHale years lives on.

I would prefer Lee as the 6th man on our team.
