Wolves Let Deadline Pass Without Another Trade

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves have let the NBA’s trade deadline pass without any more moves.

The Wolves acquired the 6-foot-11 Anthony Randolph earlier this week from New York in the big Carmelo Anthony deal that sent Corey Brewer to the Knicks and Kosta Koufos to the Denver Nuggets, but that’s it for now.

Struggling second-year point guard Jonny Flynn saw his name spin around the rumor mill, but he stayed put. Coach Kurt Rambis said the Timberwolves had a “great, great” practice on Thursday.

Several prominent players were traded this week, including Kendrick Perkins, Gerald Wallace and Shane Battier on Thursday. All-Star Kevin Love said he wishes his team could’ve got “a couple of those guys.”

    The wolves have zero trade pieces so getting players like Gerald Wallace or shane battier is imoossible. Other teams have these pieces mainly from strong drafts in the last. We haven’t had a strong draft in years and since we are always in the lottery, missing out on picks sets your franchise back 2-4 years. Small markets don’t attract free agents. Building through the draft and from within is the only way. Obviously the coaches have problems developing our players and Kahn has no idea what he is doing.
