Wolves Updates 12/24

According to Sid Hartman, owner Glen Taylor thinks the Wolves have more potential and talent than demonstrated in their recent performances. Taylor says that Garnett agrees with him and is "disappointed too."

Hartman also says that "if this team continues to lose, Randy Wittman will be coaching the team in short order and Casey will get his walking papers."

The owner on Garnett:
Taylor said there hasn't been any talk about trading Garnett and in fact said nobody has called about such a deal because nobody believes the Wolves would trade their star.
Taylor continues to maintain that because of Garnett's big salary ($21 million this season and $22 million next season), the cap problems to hard to work.

Patrick Reusse/Star Tribune on the Iverson rumors:
The Star Tribune wound up with less tarnish than most outlets. Steve Aschburner, the Timberwolves beat writer, chose to stick to the fact nothing was happening on a Wolves-Iverson front, rather than pander to the pipe dreams of the local basketball crowd.
