Lowe: How two contenders went all-in at the trade deadline
"If we look at the actual deals with the contenders the Miami Heat and the and the clippers in terms of contenders moves. Yes Yup move forward at the deadline going forward. I think you see the Minnesota Timberwolves have made a big move forward. I'm not really sure. What the Cleveland Cavaliers have done? They made a big Zach. Lowe's point about the cavs. Good one at that price. Why aren't you making that deal? WAS CLEVELAND LIKE YOU HAVE A. You have a chance at a twenty six year old all-star to you know you have three months to answer to young team I think is really gonNA develop here in the next couple of days is unless there's a last minute deal that will just tell us about and you can use that again Thomson was not traded. That's right there was like six centers traded over this last three days. Tristan Thompson was not one of them. There has been a belief in the League and frankly his agent has been cleared. Paul's been clear. That Tristan is interested in taking a buyout. Because if you take AK- buyout even if he doesn't plan on being with the cavs you lose your bird rights and you can't be executed assigning trait but considering where they are now we're android is going to be their starting center. He has to play a a lot of minutes going down. The Stretch Tristan is not gonNA play not going to be able to improve his value. I think the chances of Tristan Thompson buyout have increased dramatically. That means if you're a fan of the Boston Celtics your ears perk way up right now. The Boston Celtics would be major in the market for such a good fit there. Right absolutely and the clippers who still have believe it or not. The clippers could could still use a center. I think if he becomes available over the clippers looking for more shooting at that position he could come there. But if you're a Boston Celtics Fan right now. Even though your team didn't do anything you are really picking a very close eye on Tristan Thompson. Because Tristan Thompson goes to the Celtics that could be the type of move that changes the balance of the Power Easter. Well first of all to finish up on the cavs. I would say this that they have had a hard time getting the rest of the League to think that Kevin Love worth what they think Kevin love this and they have been at Har. It's been they haven't been able to make a deal because of that. Well if you got Andre Drummond not for free but for a very small price. Maybe you let Kevin love go for a lower price than you thought you were going to. Maybe that's what it's about it's about this Andre Drummond and has a twenty eight million dollar player option which he may or may not pick up. I would advise him to pick it up. The CAVS are looking at like we did about twenty million cap room they. I don't think they could use that. Twenty million on the player better than Andre Drummond. So in a way this was a free agent. Move whether or not he keeps. He picks up the Optional Sarah. So let's move on from Andre Drummond. I WANNA get to Paul Paul. Can you go directly into your camera. Here and make a pitch to Tristan Johnson to talk to buy outs or the one player that can put the Boston Celtics Celtics over the top taking a couple extra less. Millions is work. But you don't know the answer is you. Don't take any money. They make the cavs by you out. Because they've they've they've just traded for your replacement but then you go sign and get more of my life could be part of a of another friend and these France table talk need a physical presence. A veteran leader champion.

"timberwolves" Discussed on Newsradio 830 WCCO
"Six five one nine eight nine nine two two six well Minnesota starts a four game road trip with another loss at sea level or altitude there is no spending it the Timberwolves are struggling they are in free fall mode tonight elevation fifty to eighty in Denver Colorado the mile high city and they go down losing to the nuggets by nine they fell behind by as much as seventeen in that first half clawed back got to within two in the second half but Denver able to pull away so here's the data on the T. wolves right now and it's not pretty nine straight losses longest losing streak for Minnesota in four years Minnesota clearly not having a December to remember the Timberwolves have zero wins this month and I'm looking at the calendar we're twenty days in fox are they gonna win this month give themselves a a Christmas gift what they they need a victory badly they'll go to Portland Amarnath you'll hear it right here on WCCO by the way Denver a very good team we knew going in this would be a struggle five straight wins now for the nuggets they are thirteen and three at Pepsi center in downtown Denver that is the second best home record in the Western Conference we have the LA clippers who are fourteen into at staples center the nuggets are eighteen eight the current three seed in the west Minnesota meanwhile ten and sixteen and as bad as things are right now for the wolves they're still only a game out of for are the final playoff spot which is remarkable with with a nine game losing streak and actually the record now ten and seventeen and Portland is playing we'll get a final on that one here in a bit the Timberwolves right now one and a half games out of that eighth and final playoff spot but they don't look like a playoff team at all they clearly are going in the wrong direction so we'd love to hear from you well what would you do to fix the timber wolves and let's not forget Karl Anthony towns did not play for the second straight game with a knee injury that that's a huge loss there's no debating that but there are none the less you got to play with who's available and they didn't have cats and they can't get the win Kevin in Burnsville wants to join us take Kevin how are you I'm good man are real good glad to have you done yeah thanks for having me you know this this is also frustrating because the walls even without cat should beat the pelicans when they played in a few days ago a thirteen game losing streak you don't have chat but it's it's still said matter because the pelicans are the bottom of the barrel you don't expect them to beat the nuggets but in both of these two games the washers seem like there's no desire to win out of you see it you know Tracy on Graham continually shooting incredibly poorly Jeff Teague you know it I think he's a guy that's gotta go but there's just it seems like there's no desire on this team to win and I think it gets even worse when cats not in the game I think can't bring some form of energy to the team but he just kind of seems like we're stock in a in a purgatory tight and that there's you know the walls are more than eating one or two moves but there's there's something that has to be done for them to be relevant again and I don't I honestly unfortunately don't think it's happening this season yeah good take Kevin we appreciate the phone call again the phone number is six five one nine eight nine nine two two six six five one nine eight nine nine two two six Kevin's probably right in in a lot of the points he made it as far as effort and energy that should be a no brainer you're in the NBA this is your job you're paid to play basketball yeah you do miss Karl Anthony towns the guy averages twenty seven points per game twelve rebounds per game he's the face of the team I get it he's an all star one of the top players in the NBA but when he's not in there you got to bring even more energy into the equation you you gotta be ready to go even more than normal knowing that somebody has to pick up the slack and of course you know you're going into Denver and the nuggets are so tough to beat at Pepsi center and you're gonna see Nikolai you'll catch and Jamal Murray and some of the stars they have and by the way you okay it's his fifth triple double of the season thirty third of his career he had twenty two points ten rebounds ten assists in the game and Jamal Murray also a factor twenty eight point six rebounds five assists and here's a guy who scored thirty three against Orlando on Thursday night but the T. wolves just seem to be missing something right now and I'm sure it's very frustrating for head coach Ryan Saunders and the the guys in the room but they have to figure it out nobody in the association is going to shed a tear for Minnesota because Hey cats out war things aren't going the way you would like six five one nine eight nine nine two two six six five one nine eight nine nine two two six the mother take aways in this loss at Denver one oh nine to one hundred once again Rick city for Minnesota beyond the arc the timber wolves ten of forty two in triple tries they had their looks you could hear in the broadcast when Allen was doing the game and even Ryan Saunders in his postgame news conference they had some good looks but they could not get that ball to drop ten of forty two ouch got to do better than that yeah maybe things will improve tomorrow night in Portland when the T. wolves take on the trail Blazers a team that is slowly moving up the ladder in the NBA's Western Conference that certainly will be another challenging road game the trailblazers a year ago we're very good team in the NBA so the Minnesota Timberwolves lose one oh nine to one hundred they had a sell out at Pepsi center nineteen thousand five twenty was the crowd count and for the walls their top score was Andrew Wiggins followed by Gorky Zhang with eighteen points Gorky four of six beyond the arc he was the lone bright spot in hoisting up three balls and Chris tubs he was an unlikely guy that you would think okay he's gonna come out and be your guy beyond the arc launching threes big Gorky got hot for a while it just wasn't enough and to think of we know that this team need shooters in and near you and I as we were sitting here watching the game and listening to the game and and just trying to figure out what there are numerous problems right now the timber wolves let's let's not sugar coat it there and there are still this thing is several layers deep and not having Karl Anthony towns I think cat covers up a lot of wars that's a good players do good players cover up a lot of words they don't have shooters they missed Jake layman so very much with that turf Joe I mean he was brought in to be a shooter they have guys that are are you're expecting something out of them that no just respect I I just don't think that they're capable of and gore she Jiang you know what you said four out of six when he is your number one guy shooting the ball from beyond the arc you know that eight things are going really really good or the going really really bad I think the problem tonight to kind of piggy back off of what Kevin was saying is that it's a recurring theme during this losing streak and the New Orleans game it just it in fury H. me tonight I had I had very little expectation I wanted them to play well I wanted them to be competitive in Denver Denver is a tough place to play in the end you mention their good team their team that some people I think it could come out of the west you know I mean that top three four see let me say that I mean right now I think it's kind of a Lakers the clippers and yeah on everybody else but they dug themselves such a hole in the first half I mean they were down there were EE sixteen points in the in the first quarter you like you can't do that especially when you don't have Karl Anthony yeah the nuggets actually led by nineteen at one point the game the timber wolves never lad so this thing was tied once at the opening tip when it was zero zero on the board I mean they they they had opportunities I will say this because you mention the will bring down my nineteen they had opportunities to take the lead especially one of seventy two to seventy and then a couple shots on the offense of side two to potentially take thought that they could never they can never get over the hump and I was actually doing the math here Eric ten for forty two tonight they were six four forty five in the first game against against Denver now using my minutes sixteen for eighty seven that is sixty four eighty seven I did that on the fly so cal public at all while and boy was I educated well now here's my Minnesota public education sixteen out eighty seven is eighteen percent who will they shot eighteen percent from beyond the three point line against the team that you got to be at least thirty five to forty percent to have a shot no doubt and and really let's cut to the chase it would have been a a major upset had the timber wolves gone into Denver and beat the nuggets right now Denver's nineteen eight they're the two seed in the west with the wind at night they they crawl past the LA clippers by percentage points in the ultra competitive Western Conference I I don't think too many people thought Minnesota would go to Denver and get a win but as Kevin said as you just said Chris it's some of the other losses in this nine game skid that concern you you've got New Orleans that one sticks out yeah big time the other night pelicans it lost thirteen in a row how bout Memphis Memphis is a team with the worst record in Minnesota you've got a couple of losses to Phoenix a couple on the street I mean you got one yeah the Memphis Grizzlies honesty sons pelicans there there are there are some losses they probably should not have happened but they have and now the wolves have dug a hole in the guy to get out of it and like I said it will not get any easier tomorrow night in Oregon Portland is not an easy place to play the trail Blazers got off to a sputtering start but they are slowly getting things turned around in Portland I believe will ultimately be a playoff team so I they they've got way too much talent to not be a playoff team I me right now they're up on Orlando one eleven in ninety two they're back court I love their back court I have loved their back court for the past couple years Dame Lillard and CJ McCollum are absolutely when they are at their best they are one of the best backcourt tandems in the NBA and that is a hill I willing to die on tonight Dame Lillard thirty six points in thirty four minutes CJ McCollum twenty seven points by the way you've got Hassan Whiteside who had that falling out in Miami and because you don't have nurture each who went down last year with that awful injury Portland was looking to replace somebody in the middle that's one of the reasons that they did they they struggle last year the policy that they didn't have the big man Assan white side right now the double double double ten points sixteen rebounds and Portland.

"Whatever man, I actually am cool with the referees. Allowing these guys in the last couple of minutes to play I know some of you out there sticklers to the rules of defendants. Dan, the first good vantage. We'd good. No. I want the games to be a little more physical. And I'm okay with that. Now, if it's completely agree Disley, hacks them on the arm. That's different. But did he not let their grows follow-through? Okay. Fine, whatever. But the shot still got their, you know, give me a little step back action Derrick rose right that we can't block your shot. You know, he stepped right into it. And of course, Tyson Chandler with his length was able to kind of get out. They're smart enough to get out the way, though, just to make you know out there because he could have jumped into Derrick rose that would have been three shot. It was not body at all. It was all hand. But look that's the veteran savvy that a guy like that brings to the table. And he was the hero at the end. Is LeBron talked about At a veterans. veteran who the spirits allot able to pick up things very fast. You know to be able to get Tyson and to have that one two punch Valentine's those guys create extra opportunities for. Way d- rose shoot Navolato as we needed. Every last one off the reviles allowed us to to win a game in a season where we've sat there and have dissect it every play and look that's not to say we won't dissect every play here moving forward because we will. And they were things last night. I didn't necessarily love from Luke particularly down the stretch. The the lineups to me are still something that are bit mind boggling, but again, we're gonna stay on the positive tip for a second. Okay. The thing I took away from that game. And I'm curious to see what you guys thought about this. I wanna I wanna see if you're on the same page with me, the two numbers that stood out. The most to me forty three points in the second half for the Minnesota Timberwolves twenty two points in the fourth quarter for the Minnesota Timberwolves that to me. Those are numbers that are music to my ears because what have we been harping about? When it comes as Lakers team that their defense is absolutely atrocious. And for the first time. The entire season. I know it's only eleven games in. But for the first time I finally came away from game saying, all right? They they look competent on defence for change. So I know I've been harping on some stuff. But again, there's two conversations we've been trying to have here with you. There's a micro discussion which is the day to day. Whether it's a game reacting to the game reacting to the news of the day. Magic Johnson, you know, getting on Luke or whatever. And look that stuff not gonna go away. Okay. But the macro discussion was always just take a breath is gonna take a minute. Not. Everybody's Michael Thomson with this was going to be fifteen and five to start the season Ireland, and I particularly were very much on the ten and ten through twenty games, and you're good. And and they're going to probably be ten in ten look at the schedule moving forward here. They're gonna play Orlando twice. Orlando might be I know the wizard stink right now. But Orlando might be the. The worst team I've seen play NBA basketball this year. I honestly think that if you gave I don't actually honestly believe this. I'm lying to you. But if if they played Duke, they probably lose at least one out of ten, and that's generally, not the case NBA teams versus college, nor should it be. But the Orlando Magic are so trashy as a squad that I actually think that Duke might get one out of ten games against the Orlando Magic and the Lakers play them twice over the next couple of nights..

Almost went off there. So we are at the our L LA studios here, which is across the street from Staples Center, and you know, we do this a few weeks ago, we focus a lot on the Lakers.

There's they're staying in one of these downtown hotels. They're doing their shoot around at Staples Center this morning. I haven't been to shoot around at Staples.
"timberwolves" Discussed on Izzy and Spain
"But as at least flirted with an offer to the Minnesota Timberwolves that includes four first round picks, which basically is they feel as though they are Jimmy Butler away from contending there. One in. Five Mike dantonio says they've lost their swagger the season is not over. They are not left for dead right now. But if you look at the Western Conference in the NBA it gets late early in the NBA season because it's one thing if you're the one or two seed where you might not have these stiffest challenge in the conference in the playoffs. But the NBA playoffs are the antithesis of the MLB playoffs baseball. It comes and goes before you know, what the Red Sox go from playing the Yankees around one two World Series World Series champions in what feels like a blink of an eye. The NBA playoffs are two months. It's a grueling stretch for anybody that makes it far you got to be have to position yourself appropriately during the NBA regular season to make a deep run and they're one in five and they're looking up at not just the warriors. But you know, the always competitive Spurs, the nuggets the trailblazers teams that have been good the jazz who we think could be a legit factor in this conference. Not even dimension teams like the thunder in the Lakers who have also struggled out of the gates, but figure to be in the mix come April. Yeah. You know, you mentioned defense, and it's obvious side of it. And everybody says, well, they just need to get everybody together and find their rhythm. Because Carmelo Anthony is new Chris Paul had a suspension James Harden's injured, but Cornell, Anthony two of twelve from the floor in last night's loss one oh, four eighty five to the trailblazers James harden when he's out they've lost by a combined thirty nine points in their last two games. And then Chris Paul even though he did have those games that he lost his suspension. He's nine of thirty two in the games. He is playing in. So you know, to me it feels like maybe if you put all those piles of poop together, they all fixed each other. But that's a lot to ask for like. It's a lot to say it's just about get them all together and get a rhythm because defensively those problems are not being fixed by getting everyone on the court together. And then offensively they shot thirty two percent from the floor last night. Yeah. So here's what I would say is that. I don't have concerns that the rockets can't find a rhythm. They're going to be very very good. And they're going to find the rhythm. We're gonna find their swagger back. My point about the standings is notable because like last year at the end of the NBA season. There was this teeny tiny sliver of a margin between the third seed and the eight see there was legitimately competition for six spots in the playoff up until the final three days of the conference so at but like the in relative terms, you know, the rockets and the warriors had it easier than other teams where like the trailblazers with a thirty two got swept in the first rattling the depth of the west makes it such that you really don't have the opportunity to falter in the way that the rockets have faltered right now unless you're going to have a blitz of the rest of the regular season, which they showed us last year. They can have a lot of this is small sample size confusion for us right now. I'm not saying the rockets aren't going to be competitive in very good. When push comes to shove. But it's a bit disconcerting when you look at the bigger. Picture because we know that the west is going to be really good top to bottom in the difference. Be in the third and the second or the second in the fifth seed community world of difference. Yeah. Absolutely, right, sir. Spain and field Yates, it's ESPN radio. Spain and Fitz on the ESPN app and siriusxm channel eighty as. Well, you know, part of that to me is trying to figure out is this intangibles..
"timberwolves" Discussed on Full Court Press
"Okay. The Timberwolves have had a busy schedule to start the season not ideal for them given that what Jimmy Butler practice two maybe three times with him before the season started. So they lost opening night in San Antonio played. Well, lost by four points. So win over Cleveland. Cleveland is terrible. Lost a Dallas Dallas is a team playing. Maybe as up and down as any team in the league. A nice one into the Anna definitely their best offensive performance of the year by far in the three point loss in Toronto. Toronto might be planning better than anyone in the league to this point. And then they got smoked by the box sewer playing really really, well, maybe the only Toronto's playing better than to walk at this point so two and four to start the season not the record. They would've wanted but six games, and I think a ten ten days, maybe maybe eleven days on one hundred percent. Sure. But busy schedule the first thing. I was looking for is what how's it chemistry? Look and their spirit looks good. They're happy. They look engaged with one. Another Carl towns is definitely struggling with officiating changes, and they played a lot more gory. Gory djing than they would have preferred Jimmy's playing well Teague is playing well. But when I watch his team play, Greg their best three point cheaters are who there were only two last year. Teague and towns dead last in three points outs. They add Anthony taller, and they're still not getting any shuts up from the three point line. And in these close games. It really does come down to that very specific thing. It's just not that they're not getting attempts. But they're not running anything schematically to create looks from the three point line. And when you said last year, and we'll stick by towns and teach about the everything seven three point tents game. That's not weird anymore. I mean, we have guys averaging ten a game. The better shooters the league the higher volume players in the league when taller is in the game. They should be running specific sets him weakside three point looks. He's in the Ducker spot too often playing closer to the rim than away from the rim. And so you see a defense at times they like Cleveland give up too many points. Even in that win Dallas put up one hundred forty and regulation on them that shouldn't happen. So there's still at times fundamental issues on defense there were twenty years. And if it's a last year, but like I saw in the game they can play very good defense. But even when they play good defense games too close or they lose, and it's more of the same. I don't want to spend time on it. Because we talked about all ask year. Just generally just the formula is broken. They've added more three points users, and they still can't get three point shots up. And I'm sorry. But. Derrick rose is just still doing too much one on one attack on the court, and he's not attacking to create a class the defense. And that kick it to an open shooter butlers never been a guy who embraced the three point line. So I still think the formula is obsolete outdated. It's I don't know. It seems everybody. Everybody's different types of coach. I mean, I mean, it's like beating. Just beating the same drum over and over again shot shot distribution. Yes, shortage distribution is the result is not something. You intentionally want to define going into a game. But your offense should be creating the right shots for the right players and the right spaces and things like that..

"Thanks, Jason Witten coming on. Thanks again, STAN Van Gundy popping off from LA just a few minutes earlier, but let's get back to the phones that it eight say ESPN JP if you're out there, feel free to call back so I can get you back on buddy. Sorry. I had to cut short because of STAN Van Gundy. Let's go to j. You'll live Stephen. They talk to me. I was going on even going right. Talk to me. How's everything. So I wanted to ask you a couple of questions skeeving and I don't mean to be funny anything like that, but it's Derrick rose on the Minnesota Timberwolves. I don't think so. Not anymore. I haven't. I haven't looked though who the hell knows where Derrick rose is these days. But as of right now, I know he was on on the team at the end of the season fall. I know he might still be on there. I haven't even checked because one of my games may be is what Butler went through and Chicago with having to play. You know, a second fiddle to a star and for that star to say, teams like I'm not going to injure myself. I have my kids to take care of things like that for forget for Butler to put the team on his back the way he did when world was injured yet. And I don't I know know. if I remember correctly. I do believe rose is still there. I do believe that rose is still there in Minnesota plan under typical. So it's Taj Gibson, obviously, the all all those two amd Butler all played on the typical inch icago so it's it's, it's kind of it's kind of weird. What's going on right now? No, that's my whole point. Because from what I understand, what will make cats any different than one side for which brought up earlier today I go. That was the whole point of me call on the show, but I just wanted to add a little bit more tools because from what I heard last year wasn't Whiteside having problems about, you know him showing up to a sewing up to the facility late and isn't he was who would who showing up to the facility late. Oh, isn't it? Isn't his name was how I'm watching whites up? No, no, no, listen, man. They they had a whole bunch of problems with Pat Riley had to sit down and talk to him. I mean, you had guys. They literally had to talk to John Whiteside last year about quitting on the team. He is viewed as somebody that got his money and stopped giving a damn literally, at least at one point last season and the Miami Heat were incredibly down on him. Hopefully, he's made immense to try and change that moving forward. But he is a guide at a rally at sit down and talk to him, man, paralyzed city, cultural, even why would you want to go there even because if you remember, I, I don't even think they played him, but you gotta make it to the playoff where you gotta remember, they got a few rough riders on there. They got a lot of guts, they defend. They play hard as they haven't. Gundy pointed out. Very few coaches in the business are is excellent as Eric's pollster at playing to your strengths and not only that he's tight with the way he's cool with de way. Rather they were in Chicago together. You gotta believe that if he wants to go to Miami, that's something that d. way clearly supports them, what have you. So all of those things to be considered and by the way, what is there to about south beach? Could you come up with something? I can't. I can't. I can't. I'll tell you that right now. I can't do. You relate. Thanks for taking my call every for you. Let me go. Can I? Can I get a five minute rant on my Oakland Raiders it how many five second off seconds. Go ahead. Mark Davis. I understand you the owner, John grooten understand you. The coach will come on. We gotta get it together. 'cause del Rio was a step away. Now I feel like our squad is Kim steps away. Now, Kim steps away and you end he has that guy hundred million. You know, you know. You know, don't go into the bottom line is Jay, the job that Jon Gruden has done thus far Jack del Rio could have done that for about ninety five million less doc, right? Byline. Take it easy, man..
