Sources: T'wolves hire Adelman


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Rick Adelman coached four teams in his first two decades in the NBA, each time taking a year off before starting his next journey. He didn't wait nearly as long to take over perhaps his most challenging job yet. The Minnesota Timberwolves are bringing Adelman in to try and turn around one of the NBA's most downtrodden franchises. Two people with knowledge of the agreement told The Associated Press on Monday that the team and the 65-year-old Adelman have agreed on terms and a contract is expected to be signed soon. The people requested anonymity because an official announcement has not been made. Adelman replaces Kurt Rambis, who lasted just two seasons on the job. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2011/basketball/nba/09/12/rick.adelman.timberwolves.adelman.ap/index.html

An analysis of DeMarcus Cousins and (in)efficiency.

At first glance, it does appear rather bleak. Cousins is currently posting one of the least efficient seasons in the history of 20-year-olds in the NBA. His PER has been artificially held afloat by his high shots per minute figures and rebounding, but there’s really no way around the fact that Cousins has been one of the worst players in basketball this season....Ultimately though, such criticisms miss the bigger picture.

Deal for Anthony May Limit Knicks’ Upside

The trade is being billed as a high-risk move. But in some ways it is just the opposite, seeming to lock the Knicks in to roughly 50 wins over the next handful of seasons — not a lot more, not a lot less — under most of the more realistic scenarios. What might the Knicks have done differently? One thing might have been to insist that the Nuggets’ center, Nene, was among the bounty of players they were receiving from Denver. A starting five of Billups, Fields, Anthony, Stoudemire and Nene could well be a 60-win team, even with almost no depth. No, the Nuggets might not have made the trade. But no one was forcing the Knicks to make their deal either. And the trade that they did make was extravagant from the perspective of opportunity cost.
