    Faced with defending LeBron James in the open floor with the game hanging in the balance, Minnesota believed that flopping multiple times was the only course of action.

  11. Timberwolves reportedly turn eye toward Jarrett Jack

    Feb 20, 2014, 1:58 PM EDT

    Jarrett Jack, Jameer Nelson

    The Minnesota Timberwolves wanted Andre Miller, but he’s headed to Washington. The Timberwolves still need a better backup point guard to make a playoff push – they’re outscored by 4.7 points per 100 possessions when Ricky Rubio sits (+5.8 when he plays) – so they’ve turned their attention elsewhere. Hearing that the Timberwolves, falling short…

  12. Wednesday And-1 links: Trade rumor updates, mostly bad news if you want trades

    Feb 19, 2014, 5:59 PM EDT

    Grizzlies' Tony Allen celebrates on the bench during the third quarter in Game 3 of their NBA Western Conference final playoff basketball series against the San Antonio Spurs in Memphis

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Today we start off with a heavy dose of trade rumor updates. • Talks between Memphis and Minnesota on…

  13. Report: Timberwolves trying to trade for Andre Miller, want to involve J.J. Barea

    Feb 18, 2014, 1:01 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Denver Nuggets

    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…

  14. Report: Timberwolves, Grizzlies discussing Chase Budinger, Tony Allen trade

    Feb 17, 2014, 9:16 PM EDT

    Tony Allen

    The Memphis Grizzlies have a very stout defense but need more scoring punch, particularly outside shooting, if they are going to advance deep in the playoffs again (Courtney Lee has been a big boost here). The Minnesota Timberwolves need more consistent defense if they have hopes of making a playoff  push (it’s not likely this…

  15. Kevin Love calls out teammates after close home loss to Suns

    Jan 9, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The Timberwolves lost a tough one at home to the Suns on Wednesday, which is nothing really to be ashamed of. Phoenix has been one of the league’s nicer surprises in the first half of the season, and now sits at seventh in the West with a 21-13 overall record. Minnesota has struggled, and the…

  16. Mark Cuban thankful Mavericks not “stuck” like Nets

    Dec 5, 2013, 8:45 AM EDT

    Mark Cuban

    Mark Cuban tried to just spend his way to an NBA title. It didn’t work. It rarely does in the NBA — you need an elite player or two, but you can’t just go Steinbrenner and try to buy all the talent in the world to go around them. You need the right kind of…

  17. The Extra Pass: Gay, Wallace and D-Will on notice, plus Tuesday’s recaps

    Nov 20, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Toronto Raptors v Houston Rockets

    It’s early. Early, early, early. I don’t want to condemn anyone based on ten games, but it’s time to wonder what’s going on with Rudy Gay, Gerald Wallace and Deron Williams. Rudy Gay – He’s been chucking, but his chucking has now reached historic levels. Through 11 games, Gay has shot under 40 percent from…

  18. Things you don’t see every day: Jan Vesely with steal, impressive dunk (VIDEO)

    Nov 19, 2013, 10:46 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Washington Wizards

    The Wizards’ Jan Vesely actually played well Tuesday night —4-of-4 shooting plus six boards. And he had this quality play. The steal is okay, but that’s more on J.J. Barea for a bad pass (Barea got a lot of playing time as some poor play from Rubio had him in the fourth quarter) but the…

  19. Report: Timberwolves interested in Marquis Teague also

    Oct 14, 2013, 9:35 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    For a guy in Tom Thibodeau’s doghouse, Marquis Teague has a lot of suitors around the league. We passed along the report yesterday that the Jazz may have interest in Teague now that Trey Burkes is out for at least a couple months. But they are not alone, reports the Chicago Tribune — you can…

  20. Timberwolves’ Chase Budinger suffers serious knee injury

    Sep 27, 2013, 1:03 PM EDT

    Chase Budinger, Taj Gibson

    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…

  22. J.J. Barea says he’d be open to returning to the Mavericks

    Sep 2, 2013, 7:30 PM EDT

    jjbarea

    J.J. Barea was a key component of the Mavericks’ championship team in 2011, but for reasons he explained in detail recently, Mark Cuban decided against bringing back the free agent players from that squad to defend their title the following season. Barea found a home with the Timberwolves in free agency, and is signed there…

    Sep 1, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Argentina's LuisScola goes for a basket against Martinez of Dominican Republic during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    The 2013 FIBA Americas tournament finished its second day of action on Saturday night. The games that were supposed to be the best ended up being the most lopsided but, on the bright side, even those games were relatively fun to watch for a weekend in August. Saturday’s featured game, according to your’s truly, took…

  24. FIBA Americas Tournament schedule continues with Canada vs. Puerto Rico

    Aug 31, 2013, 10:00 AM EDT

    Puerto Rico's Jose Barea goes for a basket against Brazil during their FIBA Americas Championship basketball game in Caracas

    Friday’s action was fine at the FIBA Americas tournament down in Venezuala, but Saturday’s games should offer a bit more intrigue. Four of the top five teams will be in action in the second day of round-robin play, featuring an interesting matchup of Canada against Puerto Rico. Both teams take 1-0 records into the first…
