Wolves hope to win now, finally
Minnesota Star Tribune:
Love challenged Kahn and owner Glen Taylor to make significant personnel moves that will produce a winner long before 2015, when he can walk away -- and probably send Rubio away as well -- as an unrestricted free agent because of an opt-out clause granted him in a four-year contract the team insisted upon.
(Taylor is talking to a handful of interested groups from outside Minnesota, one of whom is expected to buy a minority interest now and take majority ownership from him in the coming years.)
So the Wolves signed Roy, Kirilenko, Russian guard Alexey Shved, backup center Greg Stiemsma and veteran forward Lou Amundson and traded for Chase Budinger and Dante Cunningham.
Love said he is pleased with the changes the team has made on the court and, perhaps more important, in the locker room.
