David Lee meeting with TWolves

As Marc Spears reports, Minnesota is interested in a sign-and-trade with the Knicks: “Free-agent forward David Lee is visiting with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday, and the Wolves won’t have much time to try to impress him. Lee has already visited with the Miami Heat and Chicago Bulls, and once Chris Bosh, Amar’e Stoudemire and Carlos Boozer commit, Lee figures to be the top available power forward on the market.”

    Lee really hasnt been talked about much in the past few days. He is actually one of the best FA out there. If the Knicks let him go it will be their loss. He is a double double machine. Amare cant make that claim. Knicks look to lose a lot and gain Amare…if he signs.

    The Knicks will end up using Lee for a sign and trade if they end up with no top free agent(s). If that does happen, they should get draft picks from Minnesota and not Al Jefferson. They don’t need any bad contracts.


    Good for Lee…the Knicks didn’t appreciate him. He was loyal to the team and turned down an a chance to play for the trailblazers with a 5yr $50mil contract last season, just to stay in NY and all they did was give him a $4mil contract for 1 year…smh

    Co-sign CARTEL. Knicks management is a joke.

    @ Clay: With all due respect, screw that–Knicks fans would love to have Al Jefferson. ESPECIALLY if they Knicks get no top free agents… Why waste more time “rebuilding” through free agents that aren’t going to come, when you can get a couple of very valuable pieces this summer. Knicks clearly aren’t scared of spending money (unless it’s their OWN players, ie Lee…SMH) and Jefferson can be big for New York if D’Antoni learns how to coach the half-court set…

    Sign and trade? I guess it’s back to NY for Darko.

    The timberwolves…where Power Forwards’ careers go to die.

    Isn’t David Lee just Kevin Love playing in an uptempo system in NY? I fail to see why they would trade Jefferson because he doesn’t mesh with Love, only to bring in a Love-doppelganger. Makes no logical sense, so of course David Kahn must be involved.

    D-Train: no, Lee and Love aren’t exactly the same. But you’re right, it wouldn’t make sense at all. If they don’t believe Jefferson and Love can play together, why would they think Lee and Love would work? Lee should play the power forward position, not center like he was with the Knicks. So they would still have two starting power forwards. Weird.

    As a Knick fan I think David Lee should have been the first priority. He is a Stable, tough, hard nose ball player that is being $hyt3d on my idiotic management. He’s gonna leave the Knicks and help another team win some hardware.

    why does everyone compare white players to say white players? lee is a solid player and a hard worker! hope he improves and gets to a team that wants him!

  • T-Money

    Doesn’t work hard on defense though, that’s for sure. And why is Lee such a hard worker? Isn’t that judgment based on his skin tone too? Zach grabs 12 boards a game too but nobdy called him a hardworker..

    Gerard and D Train, don’t you guys know the Wolves just like stockpiling players in general? Lets see, 5 sf’s, 4 pg’s, 6 pf’s. I mean come on, David Kahn thinks he can win a championship by getting a bunch of guys who aren’t even complimentary of each other, they’re just ball players who basically all do the same thing. Kahn doesn’t like versatility, after all it is overrated to be versatile. Who needs a center when you have 4 pf’s? And why bother with a sg when you have 4 pg’s? David Kahn: Where Failure Happens.

    david lee has less of a post game than dwight. He isn’t worth top buck and as much as K Love isn’t great he’s better than David Lee. Who are they gonna trade all Jefferson? Mike D can’t coach big men tha’s evident after the last few years. He doesn’t understand that. Man I wished Rudy Gay had signed with the clips or wolves he needs to play with a real point… I know rubio isn’t coming over yet hehe but still. Ey has Tiago Spitter signed with the spurs yet? or at least gave a verbal go to the whole deal?

    What kind of army is Kahn trying to build? Lee, Darko, Love, the Russian guy, and hopefully Rubio?
