If not an outright win for Saunders, this proposed trade is as close to it as he would get.

If Andre Miller isn’t returning to the Nuggets, they might as well trade him. Miller, sent away from the team after feuding with Denver coach Brian Shaw, definitely wants a trade and a chance to play somewhere. The Nuggets should resist any inclination to be petty, and they should accommodate him. There are a number…

Not a whole lot went right for the Minnesota Timberwolves against the Rockets Monday night, and it wasn’t a great night for Alexey Shved. But he did do this. While wearing a mask. Terrence Jones tries to rotate over to help, but he is late and just ends up in the picture. Not sure I…

Just before the All-Star break and a celebration of the game’s biggest names we bring you this reminder: Basketball is still a team game. The Timberwolves’ Kevin Love was the best scorer on the floor Monday night when Houston came to Minnesota. With no Kevin Martin (thumb) and no Nikola Pekovic it puts a lot…

This is not something likely go down in the near future if it goes down at all, so just put this in your “things that could happen after Christmas or close to the deadline” file. We’ve told you before that the Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to trade Derrick Williams. Flip Saunders and the rest of…

We at PBT danced around this a little earlier talking about how Minnesota is willing to make moves to win now in an effort to put a winner around Kevin Love so he will not leave. It’s a long, long ways off, but in the summer of 2015 Love will be the premiere free agent.…

Derrick Williams and Alexey Shved are reportedly on the market but this is all about Kevin Love. If that sounds strange, follow along here. Minnesota is entering a “win now” phase and they are off to a nice 5-3 start this season thanks to their expected strong offense and a better than expected defense. They…

Each week the PBT writers sit at a virtual roundtable, just like the knights of King Arthur, drink mead and discuss the NBA topic of the day. This week’s question: Who is going to be your League Pass team this season (the team outside the brightest spotlights that you keep finding yourself drawn to when there are…

The Russian culture is not one of smiles — the Moscow Times traces it back to the Cold War and before, noting that generations were raised about how Americans had insincere smiles. The stereotypical Russian disposition comes off as a little more austere. Alexey Shved is Russian, but the Minnesota backup point guard plays on…

The injury bug just will not leave the Minnesota Timberwolves alone. A season after they lost Kevin Love for much of the year when he broke his hand twice, and after Ricky Rubio missed part of the season (and wasn’t himself for much of it) recovering from a major knee injury comes this news: Chase…

We don’t know who the starting point guard in Milwaukee will be next season — Jeff Teague just signed a four-year, $32 million offer sheet that the Hawks can match; plus the Bucks still have the rights to Brandon Jennings (a restricted free agent). However, we know who the backup point guard will be. Luke…

It was an interesting year for rookies. Damian Lillard stood out as the point guard Portland needed, but he had the advantage of talent around him that other promising players (Anthony Davis, Andre Drummond) did not. Then there were good young players like Jonas Valanciunas flying under the radar in Toronto. So picking the NBA…
