You are the Timberwolves General Manager. You've got one of the best forwards this league has ever seen on your roster and are unwilling to part with him. However, he is extremely disgruntled because the previous GM Kevin McHale has done a effing horrible job in surrounding your superstar with talent.

Who do you surround your superstar player with? What moves would you make?

Move #1 - I fire the head coach and hire Rick Adelman to take over.  

Move #2 - I see about dealing bad contracts for bad contracts, trying to turn a Jaric, Hudson, or Blount into a Francis, Jameer Nelson or Adonal Foyle.  I'd merely try and find ways to swap my trash with someone else's trash in hopes of finding overpaid players who could better fit in Minnesotta.  

Move #3 - I draft as best I can with my Golden State 2nd round pick.  Probably going for a 4 year college graduate who can rebound and play the 5.

Move #4 - I use my excemption as best I can, most likely taking my best shot at Jamaal Magloire, maybe Chris Webber.  

Move #5 - I would sign as many undrafted free agents specializing in outside shooting as I could find.  

Potential Move - I would not be the least bit shy about dealing Randy Foye if the return is interesting.  


Ultimately Minnesotta has SF covered with C. Smith and R. Davis, and a Foye/McCants stance at SG.  The problem is that they have three highly paid failures at the point and one undersized, weak Center who is even more overpaid.  Adding another solid bigman up front is the most helpful manuever they can accomplish.

KG would have nothing to do with the wolves if he knew that is what they were doing.
