Wolves Updates 8/9

From Steve Aschburner/
It is a different Al Jefferson who joins the Minnesota Timberwolves now. He's older, more established and more clearly the cornerstone of whatever the Wolves can put together in their rebuilding plan than he was in Boston. So however uneasy the reunion gets for Davis and Blount, however tempted they might be to pull what little locker-room rank they think they have as veterans who knew Jefferson when, they need to get over it right now.

Al Jefferson figures to be around a lot longer than Davis or Blount, whether the duration is measured in seasons or months. introduces

Bob Sansevere/Pioneer Press talks to Kevin McHale about his reputation, whether Jefferson will have the same impact here as Garnett, and what kind of record the team will have next season.

Trudell also talked to Theo Ratliff. The player says that he is "trying to get ready, back for this moment, to be able to get back on the floor."

From Stephen Litel/Hoopsworld:
To a certain degree, it is as if all the frustration this team has caused throughout the years is being taken out on the young men who just arrived in town, however misplaced that may be.
