Re: Kandi/Blount deal is "imminent"

In contract talk, it could work a Kandi+Hudson+Skita for Scalabrine+Blount+Banks move.. But it's an even worst move, in salary talk...

Re: Kandi/Blount deal is "imminent"

You know what the problem is with all the complaints so far, it's that Blount isnt a productive big man. He doesn't rebound ot block, this that, blah blah blah. This team NEEDS a shakeup, not to mention, teams arent chomping at the bit for Big Mike. Fact is our starting C right now, cant rebound that well anways, although he can O rebound well. He is a permiter C, just like Blount, He is not half the shot blocker Griff is, but neither Griff or Blount is a great C, what they have in common, they are both better than Mike, and if we get Flip Murray in the deal, I think that he can be the icing on the cake. Flip could probably crack the starting lineup replacing Hassell, Flip can flat out score. Another PG in Banks, bad idea, we have three at the moment. Olo for Blount and Flip, Good Deal, we're over the cap anyways, so who cares if we pick up more contracts. They'd have to drop KG to hit the FA market anyways. Good move, we need the shakeup.

Blount isn't a shake up. It's swaping one bad player for another bad player. Blount leads the league in turnovers per minute, and doesn't crack the top 100 in rebounds per minute. He has a jump shot, but that's about it. Including the trade kick Blount is getting $8Mil a year over the next 4 years ($7.0Mil, $7.75Mil, $8.45Mil, $9.15Mil). That's hideous. Yes we'll be over the salary cap so it won't affect that, but what it does do is put us over the luxury tax every one of those years, and that's not even counting future signings yet. Taylor isn't going to want to spend $10Mil for a $5Mil player. Blount doesn't improve the team at all and he just hurts it financially. Unless there's something really nice included too (Flip Murray wouldn't be enough), I hate the trade.

Re: Kandi/Blount deal is "imminent"

Minnesota is officially trying to make their cap situation irrecoverable.

Re: Kandi/Blount deal is "imminent"

I disagree about Flip Murray, I think he's a starter in this league and I think you guys think that the Wolves can score a big player for Kandi, and they just won't get that much, I hat to say settle, but the thing is, if not this, then maybe, just maybe something a little more attractive, but I doubt there's much out there, so what you guys are saying is you'd rather keep him.

I have this unshakeable fear of Minny becoming "New York West". Without the solid drafting.

Re: Kandi/Blount deal is "imminent"

I hope you all saw at least on NBA fast break Kandi become part of a new Paul Pierce poster, it just makes me feel all the better about my comments that a shakeup is needed, He saw him coming and ducked away, he created an absolutely great poster shot, I found it so hilarious and it made my day, haha, go Kandi man, altough Blount isn't great either, I just found it hilarious, althought the man did pull down 9 boards.

Re: Kandi/Blount deal is "imminent"

Kevin Mchale is officially an idiot. Blount isn't bad per say (except for the turnovers)
but he is overpaid even for a center.

Boston makes out in this deal just getting rid of his contract. Somehow I doubt
this deal would even be taking place if Danny Ainge and Kevin Mchale weren't good friends.
Mchale is one of the few friends Ainge has back from his Celtics days.

Welcome!


Well basically, Blount is not even that productive, Kandi is actually better. As bad as Kandi is, he will still get us rebounds and is still going to give us an expiring contract.


T.K.O.T.W said what I was thinking too... I really don't want us to become the New York Knics of the West.... Please no.

Olowokandi's salary situation makes him a better choice for the situation, but I'd say Blount is the better player.

He's a better scorer. But he's a horrible rebounder and turns the ball over all the time. Given those very important factors I'm not sure there's really much of a difference.

Re: Kandi/Blount deal is "imminent"

alot of players seem to think mark could be a really good player. i remember last year gary payton s aid with himself, mark, pierce and ricky he thought the team could do anything. of course, mark had a horrible year a year ago. i have always been an olowakandi fan jus because he was the #1 pick pretty much and i always thought hed be okay but hes been terrible. Id still prefer his expiring contract to blount on the celtics, but at the same time if Blount is with KG who knows, maybe KGs intensity will somehow rub off on Mark. I think he has the talent to be a solid 15/7 guy but hes a moron and doesnt seeem to care about winning all the time.
