Timberwolves GM David Kahn has done it again: Minnesota has agreed to send Al Jefferson, a 25-year-old power forward who has two 20-10 seasons under his belt, to the Jazz in exchange for a Memphis first-round pick which (due to protections) will never be in the top-9 as well as Utah's own 2011 pick, which is unlikely to be higher than No. 20 or so.
Kahn's performance has been so disappointing I actually wonder if a delicious avocado would have better results as the GM of the Timberwolves. Let's turn to the tape!
Assuming the avocado could not execute any trades or free agent signings but did manage to make the team's draft picks, there's the comparison of assets acquired or lost since Kahn began his Reign of Horror in May 2009. Note the lack of draft revisionism; you don't even need to make the case for Stephen Curry over Jonny Flynn or DeMarcus Cousins over Wesley Johnson to see that the Wolves would be in a better position had Glen Taylor hired an inanimate fruit instead of Kahn.
T-Wolves fan: "David Kahn isn't stupid, he has a plan!"
One summer later, things are not so rosy in Minny.
Makes me wonder how things would've turned out had we hired a cantaloupe.
