    I hope with the recent bad news of Marcus Camby we will see Luke Babbitt play more minutes and prove himself. He is a good 3 pt shooter and i hope (if he gets playing time) he will step up and be aggressive. He was the 16th overall draft pick and i think with him almost being a lottery pick we should play him more and let him develop. It never hurts having someone to space the floor especially when you have a potential All Star post player!

    He is too soft for a forward position.
    his height is decent but not for him.
    no more luke.

    you cant rely on this guy to take that big of a role.
    he should of been mixed into the rotation so long ago.
    Like idk how some of you guys can think that you play your starters all the time, and not only are you surprised when they go down. bu the even bigger surprise is that the back up players that come in, frankly are very underdeveloped and inexperienced.
    If anything Cunningham is going to come in for back up, with that block he had the other day, oh yeah.
    Babbit has a total of 5 minutes and 12 seconds in the NBA over 13 games, with 17 points. he is 7 for 28
    1 for 8 from 3. boasting 4 TO.

    idk about you, but if thats your idea of backup, pull the white flag yo

    For once, I actually agree with TayC.  Whenever Babbitt's on the floor, my brother and I always just laugh at how atrocious his play is.  It's not all his fault, though; He should by all means still be on the TWolves where he could actually get minutes and develop his skills in a more competitive environment than practice.  That Martell trade was pretty bad, considering we just dropped Ryan Gomes.  Like Roy said, we just don't have enough shooters to space the floor right now!

    Yeah i guess i just want him to do good since we were a playoff team and he was almost a lottery pick. SO i think in my mind i have held him as a better player than he has shown.

    im not saying, drop him for the next best draft pick, we need or better yet (should of) played him or at least tried to find a good spot in the rotation for him. But you see we came out hot, so we wanted to play with no chance of mistakes, then we had a slump, and thats when he should of got playing time. Now we have had a good comeback and its like the original run we had, we dont want to or cannot afford to mess up.

    However FAmous makes a good point about Webster.
    Imo he should of stayed, he had the height to always be on the floor , maybe with some defensive training, and you know he's got his shot down.

    but the team is at a difficult point to put this kat Luke in there, unless he really just breaks out, which would be amazing, but idk its a tender subject i guess, hahah.

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
