Timberwolves Exercise Options for Wesley Johnson, Lazar Hayward, Wayne Ellington

The Minnesota Timberwolves have announced today that they are exercising the options for Lazar Hayward, Wesley Johnson, and Wayne Ellington. One of them makes sense, the other two don't. By exercising the options, they guarantee that the wolves will be able to keep them all through the 2012-2013 season.

They had to pick up the 3rd year option for Wes Johnson. It was an obvious move. He was pretty good last year and has a ton of potential and they invested a ton of their future into him.

Lazar Hayward? Are you kidding me? Here's the problem I have with this, this is an example of Kahn simply being stubborn. Admit you screwed up with Lazar Hayward and that he isn't an NBA player.

Wayne Ellington makes some sense. He is a pretty good three point shooter, something this team needs, but he is nothing more than that. You just have to say when you're making these decisions. is this guy a part of our future? The answer with Ellington is clearly no.

Hopefully the Wolves made the moves in hopes of trading these two guys, but here's what I think: they won't get jack back for these two. Nobody wants them.

Minnesota Timberwolves 2011 NBA Draft Party Should be Poppin'

The Minnesota Timberwolves will be hosting a draft party at Lifetime fitness right across from the Target Center in downtown Minneapolis. This is a huge moment for the franchise and it should be a ton of fun. Look, the franchise can really take a turn for the better with some good moves in this draft. The team holds the 2nd and 20th picks in this Thursdays draft. By bringing in both Derrick Williams and Ricky Rubio in the same year, the Wolves really could be on to something and there would be a lot of excitement around the team. Doors for the draft party open at 5 30 pm Central time.
