Did I miss scandal?
That's the way it should end. Take a bow, Jeets.
If jeter hits a walk off tho
Having a hard time understanding why people are so worked up about a pitcher getting an extra $500K.
Miami coach Jim Larrañaga was here yesterday to see Hopkins Jr. Amir Coffey. Oregon and Arizona assistants coming in the next few days.
Wolves also hire former Pistons basketball ops director Jason Hervey as scout & promote Derek Pierce from general scout to advance scout
Wolves hire Mike Penberthy, who worked w/ Ricky, Chase & others this summer, as shooting coach. He'll be based both at home in LA and here
Wolves have hired shooting coach mike penberthy to the full-time staff.
A few NBA people were quick to remind me that just because NY has cap space next July doesn't mean they like/want Rubio. Not a Triangle fit.
Less than a week away from training camp. We're almost there.
Wolves have shown no indication to pay Rubio anywhere near max. Deadlines spur action so we'll see if either side moves at 10/31 nears
Gift baskets owed: 1) Bledsoe/Rich Paul to Flip 2) Hoiberg (got one of his nice raises because of the Gophers) to Teague/Ellis. What others?
You can be sure Rubio's agents watching Bledsoe deal. Will definitely be brought up in future negotiations
Some people asking me how Bledsoe got 5yr deal not for "max." It's because he's a an RFA and this isn't an extension of rookie deal
Eric Bledsoe's new $14M salary w/ Suns certainly updates market price for point guards -- and Ricky Rubio -- w/ new TV contract on the way
This a big airport In Minny damn lol
So the Bledsoe deal escalated quickly. Seems kind of Pekovic-like in that he waited and waited and got big deal despite no other offers
As camp comes...look for Flip to experiment w/ all those wings, could use 3-4 together. Shabazz, Chase will get looks at PF in small lineups
Get your tickets now!: Alexey Shved & Malcolm Lee set to come to Target Center for Wolves' first home preseason game, Oct. 10
The Timberwolves-Bledsoe chatter surfaces and boom! an untenable negotiation w/PHX gets moving. Funny how that works.
Sorry guys. I meant Zim said he had to clean up about 'four plays' not four percent. No math issues for Zim.
Zimmer circling the wagons around the embattled Kalil, saying 93% of his plays are good. Have to clean up other four
Zimmer on Teddy: "honestly I think he's been ready since the day he walked in."
