Western Notes: Timberwolves, Harden, Holmes, Warriors

The Timberwolves could reap some benefits if they get a chance to play again this season, as Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star Tribune details. The team added several new players during the second half of the season, and every game and practice they get together will foster chemistry. Young players such as 2019 first-round draft pick Jarrett Culver and 2018 first-rounder Josh Okogie need as much playing time as they can get to continue their development, Hartman adds.

We have more Western Conference news:

  • Rockets superstar James Harden says once the league deems it safe to resume competition, he’s primed for action, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. “If the league and public officials are confident that a single-site setup is safe for all players, staff and fans, then I’m ready to go,” he said. “I want to get back out there I just want to make sure we’re in a good position to so.”
  • Can Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley III co-exist in the Kings’ frontcourt? James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area explores the pros and cons of playing the two big men together. The biggest benefit, according to Ham, is that it would give the Kings one of the most athletic frontcourts in the league. They’re both high-motor players who can rebound, block shots and contribute offensively.
  • Anthony Slater of The Athletic examines the implications if the NBA leaves the Warriors out of its plans to resume the season. The biggest positive is that it would give the front office additional time to assess the financial landscape and direction they want to go before making any draft-night decisions.

    So they’re worried about whether the #2 pick in the draft can co-exist with a journeyman center? THAT’S what the Kings are worried about? Guess that’s just the Kings being the Kings.

    James Harden is new Isiah Thomas?

    Joy?

    Banana Boat does not enjoy talking to Harden.
    Chris Paul?
    What did Melo say?
    Gianni enjoys talking to Harden?
    Durant is joy?
    Curry is joy?

        Isiah Thomas was left off Dream Team because other superstars don’t like him.

        James Harden was left off NBA resume meeting because other superstars don’t like him.

        This meeting is the most important meeting in the nba history.

          And, and, and…Donald Trump is the greatest free agent/rookie point guard/power forward/ center in NBA HISTORY. Why wasn’t he invited? He can solve everything.

          Delusional much? Most important meeting in history? I’ll take some of whatever you are smoking.

          James Harden is a fake, that’s why he wasn’t invited. He is known as senior flop for a reason. Half the points he’s scored came off a bogus foul call. He’s not anywhere near the new isaih, whose bad boys pistons pissed off everyone in the league with their attitude and rough style of play.
