Reusse On Banks' DeparturePatrick Reusse believes that Wolves' history is repeating itself and that McHale's mistakes will lead Coach Casey to be fired.
He used a No. 1 choice on Foye and traded away two others. He traded his team's second-best player in Szczerbiak in the deal for Banks, now gone after starting 28 games in garbage time last season. He committed a combined $61.3 million of owner Glen Taylor's money to a guy who can't play (Jaric) and a 31-year-old journeyman who prefers not to pass (James).
And if all of this doesn't make Taylor twitch, he's also on the hook for another $27.6 million for Troy Hudson, now limping the anchor leg behind Micheal Williams, Terrell Brandon and Rod Strickland on the Wolves' relay for lame point guards.
For this mess, the Wolves will reach back to days of yore and fire Casey on or about Dec. 18.
