Incredibly entertaining guy who was also a fantastic sports writer back in the day but damn was he awful at his job in Minny.

Bill Simmons just lost a third of his NBA column humor now that Khan is out.

As a Timberwolves fan, I am heartened that Khan is out the door; its going to take a decade to undo the damage of his horrible management, though. The Love contract is just inexcusable.

Sigh.

I was reading an article on Truehoop yesterday, and while Kahn had his frickups, it looks like he didn't really leave the team in all that bad of a position.

Flip's just gonna have to figure out a way to make Love happy, and it'd be great if the Wolves could get some good luck on the health front for a change.

Except he did; the entire argument he didn't is predicated on the idea that they keep Love from leaving-- a great idea, but if they don't do it in an absolute hurry, they're boned-- his relative trade value is only declining because of the short duration of the deal and the necessity of him spending time re-proving himself as a star in the league.

Salary wise, they're not nearly as flexible as is implied; Pek is a RFA, and if he asks simply to be the 10th highest paid C in the league (something his statistics more than justify), it will be in the $13 million a season range, and eat up about another $9 million in currently underused cap space-- and if they choose to bid to bring back Budinger, they'll be close to the $70 million luxury tax threshold-- and that is before considering the looming Rubio and Kirilinko contracts that will be upon them the next off-season, and finding a suitable re-working of the Love deal to keep him happy.

Mind, there are NBA teams in worse situations, but spending the next three years being in that 6-10 range in the Western Conference is going to mean never getting the picks necessary to retool, but never being good enough to break through and compete for a title--- all while having one of the cheapest owners in basketball chafing at paying the luxury tax.

It's a situation that's Glen-Taylor made to led to a near complete blow up and rebuild in a few years.
