Just a few interesting tidbits but here are today’s Wolf Tracks:
- Eddy Curry and the Timberwolves finally agreed to a buyout. It’s unfortunate the Wolves weren’t able to flip his contract for an actual player, but at least we don’t have to watch Curry huff and puff down the court in a Wolves uniform. Word is that the Miami Heat are now interested. Don’t ask me why.
- Now on to some relevant news. In an effort to finally establish a franchise player, the Wolves plan to offer star forward, Kevin Love, a max contract bound by whatever the new CBA says a max contract can be.
Kevin Love is only 22, but he’s about to become a very wealthy man. Once the NBA and the NBA Players Association agree on a new collective bargaining agreement after the current one ends on June 30, the Minnesota Timberwolves will offer 6-10 Love a contract extension for six years worth $70 million, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
This should be some great news. This is the assurance we’ve prayed from the front office since David Kahn took over. This team needs stability more than anything, and who better to provide it than a high-rate rebounding, three-point shooting, bulldozing man of mass to be that rock?
- One other quick Wolf Track, Corey Brewer has reportedly signed a multiyear contract with the Dallas Mavericks. We wish the best of luck to you, Corey. Until you play the Timberwolves that is.
