Wolves Updates 1/25

Britt Robson/City Pages discusses last night's loss:
One of the things Casey seemed to struggle with was drawing up successful plays coming out of a timeout. Tonight, the Wolves scored 8 times (seven baskets and 2 free throws) in 12 offensive possessions coming out of a timeout, with Davis's 4 buckets leading the way.

From Charley Walters/Pioneer Press:
Casey's dismissal as Wolves coach was not solely McHale's decision. Taylor and others in the front office made the decision after a conference call, and Taylor approved it.

...Meanwhile, the Wolves continue to investigate deals before the Feb. 22 trade deadline, especially with the return soon of guard Rashad McCants. Guards Troy Hudson and Marko Jaric are expected to be dealt.

Owner Glen Taylor on whether Kevin McHale would return next season:
"Let's wait and see," Taylor said. "These things (firing coach Dwane Casey on Tuesday) are tough on Kevin. This isn't something he likes to do."

According to, Garnett will be in a Foot Locker commercial shown during the Super Bowl.

Greg Anthony/ESPN lists his top 5 rookies and ranks Randy Foye at #2, with Brandon Roy at the top.

Rob Babcock's son, Nate, talks about growing up around basketball and the NBA.

Martin Johnson/The New York Sun suggests that in order to avoid "becoming the tallest martyr in the sports world," Garnett should buy the team.
