Wolves Updates 7/13

Aran Smith/ on Rashad McCants:
Scouts like his ability to defend and think he's got a chance to finally break out this year. But his lack of consistency and mental focus are what concern people about him. If all the physical problems are behind him, he could finally be ready to contribute.

on Corey Brewer:
One scout told me he doesn't think Brewer will ever be an all star, but thinks he'll end up being a solid player.

From Steve Bulpett/Boston Herald:
Doc Rivers does not believe racial issues are a factor in getting players to the Celtics. The Celtics coach offered a rebuttal yesterday to comments made by Washington Post columnist Michael Wilbon, comments that came in the wake of declarations by Kevin Garnett and others that they didn’t want to be traded to Boston.

Tim Kawakami/Mercury News on how the summer league play of the Warriors Patrick O'Bryant could effect a potential deal between Golden State and Minnesota for Garnett.
