Dane Moore Dane Moore Podcast: The Wolves' Salary Cap Situation + Would A Scoot-For-KAT Trade Make Sense?
-- On today's show Dane is joined by Jack Borman and Tyler Metcalf from CanisHoopus.com to take a look at the Wolves' salary cap situation going forward through the lens of a hypothetical Karl-Anthony Towns for Scoot Henderson trade. Specific topics of the conversation include...
-- How pressing is the Wolves' cap situation come 2024?
-- How might the new salary cap rules through the new collective bargaining agreement force expensive teams' hands to make cost-cutting moves?
-- Might Naz Reid and Nickeil Alexander-Walker be casualties of the Wolves' financial situation?
-- If they have to trade one of KAT or Gobert, does it have to be KAT?
-- Potential KAT-for-Scoot trades
-- Are we underrating the level of prospect Scoot Henderson is?
-- Would there be value in resetting the roster to the Ant timeline
-- Scoot's fit as a point guard on the Wolves
-- Scoot Henderson's scouting report"

General Discussion What are your feelings on Zach Lavine?
So Im a Bulls fan and am currently pretty upset that we lost Jimmy Butler for Zach. Even though Zach has been my favorite Bull since joining the team, looking back we would have been better off keeping Jimmy for the long haul
Context of the trade aside, I was wondering what is the general consensus about Zach amongst the twolves fanbase
Is he the type of player you would have wanted to keep until now to be able to pair w the likes of ANT and KAT? Are there any timberwolves people who REALLY regret losing Zach lol (since he turned into an all star caliber level player AFTER he was traded from Minnesota)

Venting Jimmy Butler
There was a post on the front page cheering on the Celtics for forcing a game 7, so hopefully the Mods leave this up.
Incredible run for the former Timberwolf, making history as an 8 seed in the finals.
Great team effort for Spoelstra and the Heat, don’t see them getting past Denver but I’ve said that every round they’ve been in so we will see.

Xs and Os One of my biggest takeaways from the playoffs this season is just how difficult it is even for star players to have a consistent, great series in the playoffs.
Should we be cutting KAT more slack?
Off the top of my head: Bam, Sabonis, Jaylen Brown, Klay, Harden, Randle, Jrue, AD, Jarrett Allen, JJJ, Mitchell, even Embiid and Tatum to a lesser degree, all underperformed in the playoffs this season. Some of these guys were detrimental to their teams in the playoffs, others were just inconsistent or underwhelming compared to their regular season play.
These are all-stars, all-defensive, all-NBA, even MVP-caliber players—some of the most important players on their respective teams and league-wide—and they were unable to deliver compared to the standards they set in the regular season.
Playoff basketball is an entirely different beast, in terms of intensity, playstyle, competition, game-planning/coaching, etc. Maybe it’s just an impossible standard.
Does that mean KAT deserves a pass? No, absolutely not. I am not here to be a KAT apologist; he's been underwhelming if not completely detrimental more often than he's been a positive force in the playoffs. He’s a supermax player and a multi-time all-NBA vet in his prime. We don’t need him to be THE guy anymore. We just need him to be a great #2, 1B option; hit your shots, avoid errant fouls and bad turnovers, stay focused on defense. That’s not a ton to ask.
But I think the fact remains that playoff basketball is just insanely difficult even for most of the elite players in the league. We look at guys like Lebron, Curry, Jokic, Butler, Giannis, etc., as the standard setters and fans say we need our best guys looking like that. But most guys are either not built for it or they struggle to bring that level of intensity and focus every single game.
Edit: Some of you robots in these replies need to revisit your reading comprehension skills. I'm not responding to some of this shit but I am not a KAT apologist (IMO they need to cut their losses after this season without serious improvement from KAT). My point is we are not in a unique position with a star player underperforming in the playoffs.

General Discussion What did the Timberwolves really get for Jimmy Butler
As Jimmy gets to his 2nd NBA Finals with the Miami Heat, I was curious to look back and see if his stint in Minnesota was really worth it, considering where our roster stands. I think you'd be surprised about the "Butlerfly" Effect that succeeded.

Shout out to Ben from locked on wolves for always holding me down during the off-season!
Also, did you guys hear the podcast. Locked on warriors host wants to trade for Kat and in return give us
Poole, kuminga, moody, Gary Payton, and 2 first draft picks. What do you guys think of this trade?
Also, he seemed a little incredulous that we wouldn't trade Kat for them.
I hate it. I don't know what it does for us but I might be missing something.

General Discussion Latest Dane NBA pod seems like a huge indictment of the FO
Not only did the basketball side of things seem iffy but apparently the money side is near impossible. I dont know how they made the trade knowing that financially we would be absolutely screwed after year 2 of Rudy+Kat.
