Wolves Updates

The $1,000,000 NBA All-Star One-on-One Challenge from YaySports. Who'd win if KG and Kobe went head to head?

Dwane Casey says because of the surplus of point guards on the team they're going to have to "play their way in."

The Pioneer Press says that there's still a possibility of getting Sonics guard Flip Murray in a three way trade.

Fred Hoiberg is going back for another medical opinion, will make his decision on whether or not to play again in a week or two.

Ricky Davis on their game in Detroit tonight: We can go with them, athletic-wise. I feel we can break 'em down a little, play them the way you have to be able to play them.

From The Boston Herald:
Paul Pierce on the trade: I think Ricky (Davis) and Mark (Blount) are the guys they really wanted, and I think they’re going to do really well for them.

Pierce on Marcus Banks: He needs the minutes to get comfortable with the system and the coach, and Marcus never really got that with us. He never was really comfortable in Doc (Rivers’) system the whole time, but I think he has the ability to be a good player in this league. He’s a lock-down defender and he has a nice touch from the outside. I put him in the same mode as a (Warriors guard) Derek Fisher.

The Boston Herald also had another piece on McHale's take on the the new players.
