Wolves Updates 12/13

A preview of tonight's game at San Antonio.

Trent Hassell is one of the Wolves who views the Spurs game as a "test" of where the team stands:
"On the road in San Antonio. That will let us know if we've turned the corner. Things can change quickly, we know that. We can't get too big-headed [about winning four in a row]. We have to stay focused, realize it's a long season, and be ready for San Antonio."

Iverson rumors:
Marc Stein/ESPN: Iverson, sources say, would welcome a move to either Minnesota or Boston, but the issues confronting the Wolves and Celtics haven't changed. The Wolves don't have a first-round pick to package with the young lead guard Philly covets (Villanova alumnus Randy Foye)...

Newsday: Minnesota has been more involved than widely reported, according to a source who characterized Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor's statements to the contrary as "a smokescreen."
"If Kevin Garnett goes in to Taylor and says, "I want this to happen,' then this is going to happen," the person said.

Mike Max/WCCO: The Timberwolves would love to trade Ricky Davis to Philadelphia or another team. The reason is that his contract is attractive to others and character is more than a small issue.
