Wolves Updates 1/16

Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press writes that the Pistons' Nazr Mohammed is "emerging as the leading candidate" in a possible trade for Marko Jaric.

On Mohammed's status with Detroit:
Mohammed was pulled from the starting lineup last week and doesn't want to stick around if the addition of Webber means a more-reduced role for him off the bench.

From the Detroit Free Press:
A team source confirmed the Pistons have talked with the Timberwolves, who are shopping backup point guard Marko Jaric, among other teams...

From Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune:
The Wolves have been talking to the Pistons about three of their big men -- Nazr Mohammed, Antonio McDyess or Dale Davis.
But based on Monday's performance, perhaps they should be targeting McDyess...
