Updates Part II

According to Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press, Coach Casey is for the first time this season "considering lineup changes."
"We're not going to make any rash decisions," Casey said. "We're 6-9. Nothing's out of the realm of possibility. We've got to get the togetherness, the glue, going, whether it's different combinations or rotations."

"It's tough to rotate four point guards in," Casey said. "Three is probably the maximum. It's been a difficult process."

From the L.A. Times:
If Garnett leaves Minnesota, friends say his preference is the Lakers. However, coming as a free agent means waiting until 2008 and taking a 40% cut. Otherwise it has to be a trade, with the Timberwolves determined to send him anywhere else...

Going on nine years later, the Bulls look like the linchpin if Garnett is traded, with good young prospects to offer, such as Tyrus Thomas and Ben Gordon and the Knicks' No. 1 pick.

From the Pioneer Press:
Word within NBA circles is that the Timberwolves could lose more than $20 million this season.
