David Kahn

  1. Wolves GM David Kahn hints at lottery fix. Fine on way.

    Timberwolves Kahn Basketball

    What can get you in more trouble with David Stern than saying his referees are biased? Saying the NBA Draft Lottery is fixed. Which is pretty much what Minnesota Timberwolves GM David Kahn did after the lottery (where his team with the worst record fell to the No. 2 spot). Cleveland won the top spot.…

  2. Timberwolves executives on Ricky Rubio quest again

    May 5, 2011, 11:50 AM EST

    Spain v USA

    General Manager David Kahn and the Minnesota Timberwolves are nothing if not persistent. Next week they will be in Spain again on their quest to get Ricky Rubio — the 2009 No. 5 overall pick — to sign up, leave Barcelona and come to the states. And according to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune,…

  3. Wolves’ Kahn loves his roster, not sure why Rambis can’t win with it

    Apr 13, 2011, 2:26 PM EST

    Love_Rambis

    David Kahn puts the audacity of hope to the test unlike any other general manager. After two seasons at the helm — where Minnesota has won a combined 32 games — Kahn had this to say at a press conference Wednesday (via Canis Hoopus‘ twitter feed): We’re ahead of where we thought we’d be with…

  4. Quote of the Day: David Kahn declares mission accomplished

    Feb 17, 2011, 6:41 PM EST

    “There is no more rebuilding. There are no more wholesale changes. I like a lot of players on the team and I expect them to be here a long time.” – Timberwolves General Manager David Kahn on the state of the team. The Timberwolves’ young core of players currently consists of two undersized power forwards…

  5. Timberwolves a “determined suitor” for Nash

    Feb 11, 2011, 6:14 PM EST

    Steve Nash Timberwolves

    Courtesy of Marc Stein, who is always on the ball: Minnesota was one of the teams identified in last week’s story — along with Atlanta, Orlando, Portland, Toronto and Nash’s old friend Dallas — as a determined suitor for Nash. The Wolves, sources say, have called Phoenix as much as anyone, despite that they’re well…

  6. Ricky Rubio is struggling to shoot the rock in Europe

    Feb 10, 2011, 11:49 AM EST

    Spain v USA

    We know, Ricky Rubio is a highlight factory. A point guard with a seemingly instinctive feel for the game. He’s been playing professionally since he was 14, he has a silver medal from the 2008 Olympics and held his own with the best the USA had to offer in the Gold Medal game. The knock…

  7. David Kahn confident Rubio will join Timberwolves

    Jan 27, 2011, 7:15 PM EST

    Spain v USA

    The Timberwolves took Spanish point guard Ricky Rubio with the fifth overall pick in the 2009 draft, but he spent all of what would have been his rookie year in Spain. He doesn’t have any plans to come to the NBA this year, either, and a recent New York Times report suggested that Rubio may…

  8. The Rubio Dilemma deepens for Wolves

    Jan 23, 2011, 12:30 PM EST

    Spain v USA

    Ricky Rubio is supposed to be the savior. That’s the plan. He’s the piece that will come in and make all the misfit toys shine like new. And to be honest, even with the Timberwolves sucking for another year, the idea of Rubio being added to Micheal Beasley and Kevin Love with Wes Johnson thrown…

  9. Kahn says not to expect big moves from Timberwolves

    Jan 10, 2011, 11:40 PM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    Sure, the Timberwolves are 9-29, the third worst record in the league. But to hear Team President David Kahn is to hear someone preach of a Zen like patience and understanding. To hear someone who understands their chance will come and not to rush headlong into anything. That or it’s to hear someone trying to…

  10. Kahn still thinks Darko will be an All-Star

    Jan 4, 2011, 10:25 AM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    Darko Milicic this season has been… okay. Pedestrian. Average. Giving the Timberwolves 9 points and 5 rebounds a game, shooting about as well as he has the last few years, getting more chances, turning the ball over a little more. He’s been a big body that has given the Timberwolves a passable big to play…

  11. Three good games from Darko justifies Kahn era… or something

    Nov 27, 2010, 4:16 PM EST

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Sacramento Kings

    And now, a call and response…   Look out, world! You doubted the Kahn-O-Matic, now you reap the whirlwind! You all laughed when David Kahn signed Darko Milicic to a $20 million deal. You said there was no way a player with his history of massive failure was worth a four-year investment. But who’s laughing…

  12. NBA Season Preview: Minnesota Timberwolves

    Oct 8, 2010, 3:14 PM EST

    Twolves_intro

    Last season: 15-67, second worst record in the NBA last season, although at the end of the campaign they were playing worse ball than the Nets. Head Coach: Kurt Rambis enters his second year with this question: How good a coach is he? I’m not sold we’ll get the answer. The Timberwolves brought him in…

  13. Hey Carmelo, if not the Knicks or Nets, how about the Timberwolves?

    Sep 26, 2010, 5:57 PM EST

    If the four-team blockbuster with the Nets falls through, if the Nuggets are not going to accept a deal from the Knicks, if the Bulls are not throwing Joakim Noah in the deal, what is Carmelo Anthony going to do? How about the Minnesota Timberwolves? We’re not kidding, there was this note in the Twin…

  14. David Kahn's letter to Wolves fans: rebuilding of the Timberwolves "nearly complete"

    Sep 14, 2010, 4:10 PM EST

    At least the Timberwolves are being open with their fan base. That’s a positive. First there was the odd full-page letter to the fan base in the Star Tribune yesterday. Then there was the personal letter from the architect of the current Timberwolves, GM David Kahn, to Wolves fans. Here are some highlights, but check…

  15. Joe Alexander works out with the Timberwolves. This is not a joke.

    Aug 9, 2010, 11:26 AM EST

    No jokes, no slights, just facts. Joe Alexander was selected with the 8th pick in the 2008 draft. He has played for two seasons with two different teams, and was denied a team option for his third and fourth seasons, despite rookie scale contracts being the most affordable. Alexander has played in 67 total games…

  16. Cavs and Wolves swap Delonte West, Ramon Sessions, and more

    Jul 26, 2010, 10:07 PM EST

    UPDATE 10:07 PM: The Timberwolves will waive Delonte West, according to Marc J. Spears of Yahoo Sports, making him an unrestricted free agent. Minnesota will save $3.1 million in ’10-’11 if they keep Telfair. They also ditched the $8.8 million owed to Sessions over the following two seasons. UPDATE 9:11 PM: According to Brian Windhorst…

  17. David Kahn fined $50k for comments on Michael Beasley

    Jul 23, 2010, 4:30 PM EST

    David Kahn is not a big fan of the marijuana. Nor is he a fan of his new acquisition, Michael Beasley, being a fan of the marijuana. It’s okay though: SuperCoolBeas swears his days of using the marijuana are behind him, so he and Kahn are free to ride off into that point guard-obsessed and…

  18. Kahn calls Chris Webber a "schmuck." Mr. Pot, meet Mr. Kettle.

    Jul 22, 2010, 5:59 PM EST

    David Kahn is the king of unintentional comedy. Remember back during Summer League, when Kahn sat down for an in-game interview with NBA TV and Chris Webber? And Kahn defended his signing of Darko Milicic by comparing him with Webber and asking Webber how long it took him to find his game in the NBA?…

  19. It's not just you laughing at David Kahn, Chris Webber is on board, too

    Jul 15, 2010, 11:27 AM EST

    We’ve struggled to put into words how we perplexed we have been over Minnesota signing Darko Milicic to a four-year, $20 million deal then shipping Al Jefferson out for almost nothing. Chris Webber did it for us: “Good luck.” (Now read that quote again in a deadpan, sarcastic tone. That’s it, now you’ve got it.)…

  20. Well, of course the Minnesota Timberwolves would meet with Luke Ridnour

    Jul 7, 2010, 1:07 PM EST

    The Minnesota Timberwolves already have Jonny Flynn and Ramon Sessions playing point guard, not to mention the rights to Ricky Rubio stuffed under their pillow. So naturally, David Kahn has done the only sensible thing a GM would do with two PGs under contract and fighting for minutes: try to go get Luke Ridnour. Good…

  21. Why on earth is Minnesota meeting with David Lee?

    Jul 3, 2010, 11:00 AM EST

    So you’re David Kahn. You’ve just signed Darko Milicic for $20 million. You drafted a 23-year-old combo wing the same night you traded for Martell Webster (and drafted another small forward). You have one significant trade chip, Al Jefferson, who’s a phenomenal young player that for some reason you don’t want and who has great…

  22. Why yes, Minnesota Timberwolves, Darko Milicic will gladly take your $20 million, please and thank you

    Jul 1, 2010, 1:07 PM EST

    David Kahn is the most dangerous GM in the world. Not in the Sam Presti or Daryl Morey way, either; you don’t need to worry about his diabolical scheming or adaptable strategy, but rather how much irreparable damage he’s capable of doing to his team in a short time. Well, add another bad move to…

  23. David Kahn thinks the Wolves will be players in free agency. Good luck with that.

    Jun 27, 2010, 1:30 PM EST

    You can say this for David Kahn. He’s not lacking for confidence.  The vexing General Manager of the Minnesota Timberwolves told the Star Tribune that they planned on being active in this summer’s free agency session. And we’re not talking just the lower level guys who you would expect to consider Minnesota. No, no. The…

  24. What's in a draft bust?

    Jun 25, 2010, 1:20 PM EST

    Among the 2010 draft class, there will be stars. There will be successful role players with long, fruitful careers. There will be early risers, late bloomers, movers, shakers, and minimum salary makers. And of course, there will be the busts. The bust is perhaps the oddest of all draft day phenomena. It’s essentially a product…

  25. Timberwolves looking to revamp roster any way they can

    Jun 22, 2010, 9:48 AM EST

    The Minnesota Timberwolves have two things that do not mesh — a coach brought in to run the triangle offense, and a roster poorly suited to run it. So it looks like the Timberwolves are considering anything and everything to change shake up the roster. Just look at the laundry list of things Yahoo’s Adrian…
