Wolves/Rockets trade official

From the Timberwolves site:
Minnesota Timberwolves vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale announced Thursday that the team has acquired forward Juwan Howard from the Houston Rockets for guard Mike James and forward Justin Reed.

"Juwan is a veteran low-post player who is a proven scorer and rebounder," said McHale. "He will add needed depth to our front court, and with this move we are balancing out our roster. Juwan also provides a solid locker room presence. We wish both Mike and Justin the best in Houston. Both players have been true professionals while with our organization."
