TIMBERWOLVES: Wolves Acquire Darko Milicic from New York.

The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has acquired 7-0 center Darko Milicic and cash considerations from the New York Knicks in exchange for forward Brian Cardinal.

Milicic, 24, has appeared in eight games for the Knicks this season, averaging 2.0 points and 2.3 rebounds per game. The second overall pick in the 2003 NBA Draft by Detroit, Milicic is in his seventh NBA season and owns career averages of 5.4 points and 4.0 rebounds per game. His best statistical season came in 2006-07 when he averaged 8.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in 80 games with Orlando.

Cardinal, a 10-year NBA veteran, was averaging 1.7 points in 27 games during his second season with the Wolves. Cardinal was originally acquired in a draft-day trade with Memphis during the summer of 2008 and appeared in 91 games during his tenure in Minnesota.

This probably means no Thomas trade will be done, as our frontcourt is probably now set to finish out the season. I think this is a good deal; we now get to try out a F/C for the second half of the season and give him a second chance in the NBA. If things don't work out, we simply let him go off to the European League and free up some cap space in the process. Good deal Kahn.
