The latest from the Star Tribune has the Wolves head coach saying he is operating as if KG will be in a Wolves uniform next season. Interestingly enough, the article does say the desicion is up to the owner (further clearifying it’s not McHale’s desicion – but Taylor’s).
Star Tribune: … Wittman, though, is operating as though Garnett will be in a Wolves uniform come October.
Many saw draft day as a sort of deadline for the Wolves to make a move. Sunday could be another. Garnett’s $6.75 million trade kicker would count totally against a team’s 2007-08 salary cap should a trade be made after that date. It might be more difficult to trade Garnett if he carried a salary cap hit of nearly $29 million for next season.
“He’s too valuable to us to just make a deal to make a deal,” Wittman said. “As I said before, I hope he is here [in October]. But those are decisions that the owner and management will look at.”
