Wolves Updates 5/31

From SBR
New Serbia coach Zoran Slavnic is just the man to give Marko Jaric and Vladimir Radmanovic a fresh start with the national team.

"I like problematic players," Slavnic said at his introductory news conference. "That means that these men have their own attitude, their own personality."

Slavnic wasted no time in recalling the NBA players to the national team as he begins rebuilding a program in transition and preparing for 2007 EuroBasket in September.

Kelly Lyell/The Coloradoan on Colorado State University's Jason Smith:
The Minnesota Timberwolves recently called the Coloradoan as part of their background check on Smith.

RealGM on which players the Wolves should target in the draft.

From Charley Walters/Pioneer Press:
Kevin McHale, Fred Hoiberg, Jim Stack, Rob Babcock and Randy Wittman of the Timberwolves, who have the No. 7 pick in the June 28 draft, are at the predraft camp this week near Orlando, Fla.

Stephen Litel/Downtown Journal on Garnett's game winning shot during the 3/25 game against Portland:
The problem with your superstar leading the team to a victory? That win helped lead to the Timberwolves to eventually end the season tied with that same Portland team for the sixth worst record in the NBA. If Garnett’s shot caroms out of the rim, his team holds the sixth worst record alone.
