look up!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.”

    Bucher, who has strong ties with the Kobe situation right now, says there is “no chance” of KG going back to Minny no matter what McHale does. He said this today on ESPN.

    Take it for what its worth of course…

  • dANIEL

    SHUT UP DYNASTY THE LAKERS NEED KG.

  • Lakers305

    yet another indication on how BAD the Wolves Management is. They dont know what they are doing. I blame this mostly on KG for being a dumbass. Kevin McHale has wasted 11 years of KG’s NBA carreer. You can add 1 more to that.

  • Justin M

    Bucher needs to be fired a.s.a.p. He is turning Lakers fans against the Lakers. Someone in charge over at ESPN needs to tell him to take it easy on the bullcrap because he is way over his limit on bull crap.

  • lakersforlife77

    That kind of opinion is what got us in this situation in the first place. If Buss wants to win he better prepare to pay luxury tax up the ass. That’s only like 10 less hookers for him anyway, he’ll survive.

    The trade machine is completely pointless anyways because all it does is match salary. It doesn’t consider the many other factors, so making a trade that could possibly happen with it is difficult.

  • DYNASTY

    i would really consider having gasol maybe not over kg..but i dont think that kg thing is going down(as much as i hate to say it)so i would go after gasol..give them bynum,brown,vlad!

    Vlad is pretty much untradeable thanks to his contract, so you would have to put some other fillers in there plus a couple picks for that trade to be possible

    You guys need to consider the other teams when doing these trades on the trade machine you can’t just match the salaries. At the very least you would have to add in farmar and a few picks to that deal, but maybe farmar wouldn’t be the best asset for memphis since they already drafted mike conley

  • mikedeezy2k8

    thats all they should get for pau…. throw some picks in.

  • lakersforlife77

    [quote comment=”4079″]thats all they should get for pau…. throw some picks in.[/quote]

    You are trully underestimating pau’s value my friend. You’d have to throw atleast one more player/prospect into the mix along with a couple of picks

    This could be a good sign for LA if they are willing to pay the full amount for the trade kicker plus the salary cap tax

    This new coach isn’t going to make a bit of difference, he’s a nobody, they’re going to trade Kevin Garnett. This coach is for definate sure not going to be getting in the way of this happening.

  • punkjones

    Bucher hasn’t been close to being right about anything regarding KG so far. I can’t stand that guy. In fact, because he’s saying that KG will not be in TWolves uni next year, I think for sure he will be. They will not trade Garnett. I’m sorry to rain on the parade, but that boat sailed and I’m not believing any more hype about it. Jerry Buss talked directly to Taylor, those guys turned it over to the two nincompoops Frankenstein and Snitch Cupcake and what does anyone expect to happen? NO DEAL. And KG for his part did not put the hammer down and demand a trade.

    Seriously, why make a big deal over Lamar’s two year contract? That was ridiculous. They want that 23 mill that will come off the books.
