Latest Trade Rumor: Mike Miller & Other Timberwolves

Written By Chris C-Ford ---- Saturday, June 20, 2009

Mike Jones of the Washington Times reports that the Minnesota Timberwolves have been speaking with the Wizards about getting the #5 Pick.
"Some of the pieces Minnesota is believed to be offering up are swingman Mike Miller, who has a $9.75 million expiring contract, guard Randy Foye, the expiring contracts of Brian Cardinal ($6.75 million) and Mark Madsen ($3.6 million) and possibly the 18th and/or 28th picks."
This deal is not something that will excite the fan base. Trading away an exciting college prospect for Mike Miller, Brian Cardinal, & Mark Madsen. Why Minnesota would be willing to trade away the only 3 white NBA players that exist is puzzling to me. That's like deciding that you want to give away 3 unicorns. Eh I tried...
While Miller has been a great scorer at times and is a solid shooter, he is getting old.
Mark Madsen would bring his championship ring to town, but can he help the Wizards dance down F street next June?
Randy Foye scored over 16 points per game last season...for the T-Wolves. I was very surprised to read that stat. Could he be a decent fit as a point guard?
And Brain Cardinal this guy...
Woohoo fun lineup time
PG: Gilbert Arenas
SG: Mike Miller
SF: Caron Butler
PF: Antawn Jamison
C: Brendan Haywood
I'm failing to see a point guard in this setup. I would probably prefer this lineup
PG: Randy Foye
SG: Gilbert Arenas
SF: Caron Butler
PF: Antawn Jamison
C: Brendan Haywood
6th Man: Mike Miller
In my opinion, these guys are no Steph Curry! Yeah I'm obsessed!
