Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak is said to have called the Wolves recently about forward Dante Cunningham. But with a reasonable, $2.1 million team option for 2013-14, Cunningham won't be easy to get.


Very interesting article btw, talks about the Wolves making progress in their search to acquire a big man.

So, the T'Wolves are heavily shopping Derrick Williams. C'mon Kahn take Pau from us and give us bench pieces!

One thing about highlights, they only show the good or great play.. The dudes only avg 7.4 pts and grabbing 5.5 rbs per game, while avg 34 min. a contest... Not impressed.

If he gets thrown in in a Pau deal, fine, but doesn't seem like a guy we'd need to go out and try to get.

Not impressed either I sure hope he's just a throw in if something does go down between LA and MIN.

Building a team requires more than just All-Stars.

See Thabo, Faried, Danny Green, Gallinari, JR Smith et cetera...


This team needs more hustle, dirty work guys than stars...

If we could get Derrick Williams and Barea for Pau - we would be SUCH BETTER SHAPE.

Its just one game but Derrick Williams did not impress me last night against the Clippers. I cant see swapping Pau if Williams is the center of the trade, unless the point is a salary dump.

I don't really see the point, we are already jammed at PF, unless this was after Hill got injured and before Clark showed himself to be serviceable.

But people keep talking we need to get Rudy Gay and Kevin Love, how many stars do you need? We already have 4 and getting another one is just another dominant player you have to find a way to fit in.
Sometimes Championship teams need serviceable role players to compliment the stars strengths. Not sure about this guy though.
