Reactions to the tradeFrom Britt Robson/On The Ball:
It's not quite moving a deck chair on the Titanic, but the straight (and still unconfirmed) trade of Mike James to Houston for Juwan Howard seems more of an addition-by-subtraction and a bid to install locker room leadership than a significant upgrade in on-court talent.
Randball discusses the trade on his blog and in the latest edition of the RandBites podcast.
From Anthony at Wolves Watch:
Wow, McHale actually made a decent trade.
From David Berri/Wages Of Wins Journal:
The trade for Howard will not be the last move McHale will make this summer. But the quality of this first decision suggests that it might be another very long year for KG and the fans of the Minnesota Timberwolves.
From Dan Barreiro/KFAN:
Blame Wolves coaches, and even Kevin Garnett, from not accepting that if you are going to bring in James, you have to let him dominate the ball and score. Otherwise, it's a waste of time signing him.
