Different GM's. Kahn was a dummy. I'm hoping Flip finds a way to set this right.

Not saying that they were going to get a superstar but surely for the 20 mil they've given Pek & Martin combined, they could've tried to sign another allstar player and gotten a very servicable big man.
Now they have given up that flexibility and if K.Love does leave this team is tuck being mediocre for another 3-5 years after. And if he stays they aren't going to really have much money to bring in anyone of value to help out.
Think of it like a OKC situation w/o two top ten players on the squad.
Future draft picks in the one draft in all of professional sports that is the biggest gamble? Not even mentioning Minnesota's HORRIBLE track record in the draft and I'll say no thanks. You don't trade proven commodities, about to hit their prime, at a huge position of need to all NBA teams, just for "flexibility" (aka hope). If they don't win now then Love is walking the second he becomes a FA. They may not be a Championship caliber team, but they should make the playoffs and that's a huge start.
Can't just say they could get this or get another.....Who specifically would they have gotten and why get "another" when you already have one. Ya know?
