Some of Souhan
The Wolves might as well give Saunders a chance at coaching a stretch of games with Towns healthy before making a decision. Not for Saunders' sake, but because they don't want to find out five or 10 years from now that Saunders was worth keeping.
As for Rosas, it's time for him to do something that gives this team a chance to contend. His acquisition of Ricky Rubio has been a negative, and Russell has not been the franchise player the Wolves hoped he would be.
He needs to keep trying to find an answer, and his next target should be Rockets forward P.J. Tucker.
Tucker plays defense. He can shoot three-pointers. Although just 6-5, he's strong enough to play interior defense and rebound.
He's been a winning player and is known for his toughness. On a roster that looks like it's filled with SlimFast endorsers, he could change the way the Wolves play.
Put Tucker next to Towns, hope that they can play together for a while, then make your decisions on Saunders and the roster.
That's one way to use a lost season during a trying year.
As I have said many times; Souhan knows less about hockey than he does about basketball, than he does about football than he does about baseball, which he knows absolutely nothing about. Honestly, how this guy got a job as a sports columnist is beyond me.
Probably from all of you reading and discussing him.
