Do you think Derrick Williams can become an efficient post player? Shawn Respert: I think he can be very effective. He's not going to be a traditional post player like the ones you and I grew up watching. In the 80's and the 90's there were a lot of great post players who played with their backs to the basket. Derrick is kind of a new way of a post player who uses more face-up game, that posts up off the block, attacks with one or two dribbles... He does have to develop some type of a back-to-the-basket comfort level and gain confidence. What's most remarklable about Ricky Rubio, even at his age, is how he plays like an aggressive, confident, veteran ball player. When Derrick Williams learns that, we'll see a lot of improvement. He has all the physical tools. HoopsHype

Except for point guard Ricky Rubio, Saunders said every Wolves player, including power forward Kevin Love, has been asked about in potential trade talks. "What I'm saying is that a lot of people thought, because of where Kevin was this past year, some of the comments he made about him maybe being unhappy in the organization," Saunders explained. "A lot of people, when I first took the job until now, everybody thought that we were just going to give him away, which is not the case. "I said all along we're not going to trade him."

The Timberwolves' relationship with Kevin Love will undoubtedly improve with the ouster of David Kahn, but how will it impact Ricky Rubio? Sources say the Rubio family is disappointed in the decision, largely because Kahn is the one who stuck his neck out and drafted Rubio knowing he couldn't come over right away and did a lot of the legwork to expedite the start of Rubio's NBA career. Maybe it blows over -- Rubio wouldn't be the first player who disagreed with a decision yet eventually put it behind him -- but it bears watching. Sulia
