Randolph could be the surprise of this trade. He was given the Milicic treatment in New York. He's a good, talented player. Wolves doing a good job of finding talented players.

I will miss Brewer's energy, as he was often the only player on the Wolve's roster that seemed to have any interest in playing defense. I will not miss Brewer's shooting, which was erratic at best, nor his ball handling, which was pathetic.

Kahn has lusted after Randolph for the past year. I fear that Randolph is just a tease, a near 7 footer with ball skills. Unfortunately, with no motor.

If the Wolve's can light a fire under Randolph they will have got the better of this deal. Most likely though, Randolph will continue to be what he has been in the past, a coach-killing, GM-firing, play-when-I-wanna-play, kid.

Ask yourself this, if Randolph was really that good, would two sub .500 teams have already given up on him at the tender age of 22? I hope, for the Wolve's sake, that I am wrong.

Attn: T-Wolves
Are you complete Idiots? Why in the H ell would you make this deal. Dont try and tell us you were wanting Randolph. Do you think we are stupid? If that dude was going to do anything it would have happend by now. I am telling you, you are fool, you are the laughing stock of the league for a reason, people make fun of you because you run a professional team like a bunch of third graders. I seriously think you need to have a mental evaluation done. You have no desire to make this team better by slowly dismanteling it and hope the chumps you get fall into place. Tell me please, what was the the upside to this trade, to act like a big shot in helping the Knicks get CA? You gave up way to much for what you got and the Knicks are still laughing behind your back, or as sissiy as you are probably right to your face.
It goes to show until this team gets new personel from top to bottom including a coach who knows what he is doing, you will never be anything but the butt end of peoples jokes, you just created another one today!...f'n Idiots!

I know it is still early, but the fact that this
article has been on line for over 7 hours and
only 7 of us have even bothered shows the interest
level in this team.

Victim of the Economy, please try and do some research next time you post. Brewer was gone regardless at the end of the year. I hate Curry, but thats the friggin NBA salary cap crap, its sucks that a guy can get paid so much to eat himself out of the league and he becomes a "expiring cap asset". We got Randolph, we didn't give up a pick, and we got rid of a player who will see more playing time and hopefully do well but he wouldn't have played here. Bottom line: we got a good deal.
I do agree that Kahn and the Boyz will some how monkey up the draft, though.....

Tutu,

Wouldn't you think that just once the wolve's would make the right pick in the draft?

It is almost comical how poorly the wolve's have chosen.
2010 Passing on Cousins to draft Wes Johnson. The jury is out. Cousins has more upside. Johnson looks like a role player no matter how much the wolves try to make it sound like he is a future star.
2009 Rubio and Flynn over Curry, Derozan, and others. Trading the rights to Lawson.
2008 Drafting Mayo over Love, Westbrook, and Gordon. At least we traded well.
2007 Brewer over Noah, when we could have used more size, rather than a wing.
2006 Ending up with Foye, after trading the rights to Roy, and passing on Gay and Rondo.
2005 McCants, passing on Granger.
2003 Ebi, over Barbosa and Howard.

About the only time the wolves brass made the right pick, and kept the player, was Garnett. A few times that have chose the right player, Ray Allen, B. Roy, but have traded the player later the same night.

Finally! A good move by the Timberwolves! Even if Randolph never deveolps into a player, this trade was the ultimate addition by subtraction. Corey Brewer has been a stiff since the day the Wolves drafted him. I can't believe he is still in the league. The only quality the guy has is the ability to hustle. Outside of that? He can't shoot, he can't dribble, he can't score...

Wished we could of dumped Hayward and/or Telfair instead of Brewer, but I like the Randolph kid. Has KG potential, but needs the intensity. Still a T'Wolves fan til this day.

The Wolves traded a known stiff for a possible stiff and a big chunk of cap relief. I can't get happily excited OR angrily excited about this trade.
The only troubling thing about this trade is that it further highlights the new regime's complete inability to draft.
The best player on the team? K Love? Or that's right, the last first rounder added by McHale. Ugh.

How are they going to draw any top-level talent to this organization? More cap room is great, but if they can't get anyone to agree to come here, what good does it do? When other teams are seeking to make these deals, and you are supposedly flush with cap room and young "upstart" talent, why not leverage your position to get a veteran in here who can lead some of these young players and fill some glaring holes?(POINT GUARDS!) The Timberwoes continue to be the league's dumping ground. I suppose they want a new stadium before they'll allow this organization any level of success.

Can't wait to see our lineup of five 6'11" to 7 footers out there on the floor! What's Mark Madsen doing these days? Is he available for 3 point duty again??

Eddy Curry had a pretty big contract for the T-Wolves to pick-up. I guess we will see how this plays out for the Wolves.
