    Hoiberg as future Wolves GM?

    Buried in an ESPN article about the possibility of trading KG, there was this snippet that caught my eye:

    "In the interim? Doubts about Wolves coach Dwane Casey surviving the season have been in circulation for some time, but the Wolves' next big move, according to team insiders, is to transfer control of the front office at season's end from the under-fire Kevin McHale to Fred Hoiberg, one of KG's all-time favorite teammates. Perhaps that will brighten Garnett's outlook after an increasing frostiness in his relationship with McHale, who drafted him No. 5 overall out of high school in 1995.

    Yet no matter who's running the personnel department, it's pretty safe to say that only one man can decide if we'll ever be reading about a tangible Garnett trade. The theory I'm borrowing from one Eastern Conference executive is that it'll take Wolves owner Glen Taylor coming out and telling all of 'Sota that it was his call that it was in the Wolves' and Garnett's best interests to start anew.

    I can't imagine McHale wants to make trading KG his farewell move after absorbing much of the blame locally for the Wolves' recent demise. Nor would trading Garnett be a very appetizing intro to GM-ing for Hoiberg."


    Looks like the mayor may become a GM sooner than most expected...
    Good luck Freddy!

    There was an interview with the owner that someone posted recently and he all but admitted he was training Freddie for a GM job. The implication was that it would be with the T-Wolves sooner rather than later.

    As a T-Wolves fan I think McHale has been a trainwreck. He's had a couple of good moves sprinkled in with some disastrous ones. I don't blame KG for wanting out.

    Always love Fred, and can't hurt to have one of your all time greats as a GM in the NBA. GMac has got to drop that on a recuirt or two.

    Yea I guess you are right...the article said that they were BEST FREINDS, oh wait it said that Fred was his most favorite teammate. There have been people that i have enjoyed working with and have not spent a lick of time with them outside the workplace. But I'm sure that you are right...KG wants to spend LOTS of free time with Freddie.
