I'm going to pretend I don't even see Dallas listed as an option.

Timberwolves Buy Out Juwan Howard

October 27, 2007 - 10:16 pm
St Paul Pioneer Press -

The Timberwolves negotiated on Saturday to buy out the contract of veteran forward Juwan Howard, a move that once finalized will get them to their 15-player roster limit by Monday's 5 p.m. deadline.

The Wolves also are expected to release Wayne Simien -- acquired with Antoine Walker and Michael Doleac in Wednesday's trade with Miami -- by Monday. Simien is the only one of those three players who was told not to report to the team.

"We've finally gotten down to a number," said Wolves coach Randy Wittman, who added that another roster move always could happen but that he doesn't expect one. "We can move forward now."

Howard hugged teammates goodbye after Friday's exhibition finale at Target Center and did not attend the Wolves' public scrimmage there on Saturday evening.

On Friday, newly acquired Antoine Walker -- who, like Howard, was a former Chicago schoolboy star -- joined the Wolves. By Saturday, the teammate he knew longest was gone.

"I'm disappointed," said Walker, who, at age 31, is three years younger than Howard. "I was looking forward to it. Me and Juwan grew up as kids together. He was in high school when I was in elementary school. He was a big star in Chicago. I know he's thinking of trying to play for a championship, so hopefully best of luck to him."

Expect him to choose to play for a list of teams such as Boston, where he'd finally get a chance to play with Garnett, Cleveland, Dallas, San Antonio, Miami and Phoenix.

if he were smart, he would decide not to come to Dallas and go to Boston.

I want him here (any big body would help during the duration of Damp's injury), but why would he not choose Boston over Dallas?

Unless he is the key to trading for Kobe (if Diop really is rumored to be involved in a deal).

A high character guy that wants a championship more than anything else. He'll be going to Boston.

I agree on Boston-bound. I didn't want Houston's leftovers anyways.

That's about how I feel about it. I still can't believe he didn't choose Boston. That would have been a great opportunity for him.
