I’m sure you had to have heard your name thrown around in trade rumors this summer, and it’s not the first time. How do you handle that? Cole Aldrich: It is what it is. If it happened, it happened. If it didn’t, it didn’t. I’m going to be excited either way. I’m excited about my time. If I stay all year, I’m happy to be here. This is home for me and it always will be home, whether I’m with the Wolves or another team. I’ve loved my time being here, but it’s a business, it is what it is. I’ve been traded before and, as we spoke earlier in the year, you just never know if it’s going to happen again.
Storyline: Cole Aldrich Trade?
Aldrich was repeatedly brought up in potential sign-and-trade deals with Indiana to bring C.J. Miles to Minnesota, but the Pacers reportedly struck a deal with Toronto on Sunday to send Miles to the Raptors. Thibodeau said Aldrich is still a part of the Timberwolves’ plans. “The thing is you have size, you need depth up front,” he said. “I think the way you have to build your team today is you need to have size and the ability to play small. You need to do both. So the quality depth up front is key.”
Storyline: Cole Aldrich Trade?
Cole Aldrich and his wife, Britt, hosted a larger Christmas gathering than normal on Thursday night. Cole’s immediate family was in attendance, as was Britt’s. And so were three other families from the Twin Cities Salvation Army. A meal was served, along with a couple of gifts for each person, courtesy of the Aldriches. This was the first time Aldrich, a Bloomington native and current Timberwolves center, and his wife put on this type of event, and originally planned on doing something for Thanksgiving, though the timing didn’t work out. So Christmas was the next logical choice.
