Wolves Over The Weekend

Rakim, though a Knicks fan, couldn't stop repeating "that's my boy KG!" when he saw the claws.

According to Sid Hartman, the people involved with the lawsuit against Eddie Griffin have been asking the player's lawyer and the team for up to $250,000 to dismiss the suit.

Griffin also says he's working on making next season a better one.
"I'm out there every day working with the coaches ... and I'm trying to eat right, trying to lose 10-15 pounds, and then I should be all right," he said.

Center Daniel Santiago is taking part in the team's training camp.

Craig Smith has recovered from his wrist injury and is working out daily at the Target Center. Hartman says that Smith has " impressed coaches with his ability to rebound."

Marc Stein has an offseason preview of the Wolves:
McHale actually added two guards who can score -- don't forget rookie Randy Foye -- and those are the best kind to put next to the unselfish KG. However … none of the above offsets the reality that the Wolves have serious, serious issues in the frontcourt and precious few assets to get Garnett some rebounding and defensive help. Even if it goes small and deploys KG as a crunch-time center, a role he doesn't enjoy, Minnesota sorely needs another quality big to compete in the West.

Inside Hoops ranks Foye third on their list of Rookie of the Year favorites.

Skita says he's going to sign with the Sonics.
