Wolves Updates 7/28According to Sid Hartman, Troy Hudson and his agent are at odds with the Wolves officials. McHale and Casey don't know if T-Hud will be ready for the season as they haven't seen him workout. Hudson's agent Bill Neff says his client doesn't want to workout in front of them as he does not trust the Wolves training staff.
"He had difficulty. He felt that they rushed him back two years in a row, and he does not have confidence in that," Neff said. "They wanted him to go through two-a-days starting July 5.
"They insisted on it, and he said, 'I'm not ready, I'm not ready. I'm not going to do that. I'm not going to make the same mistakes I've made in previous years. I want to play. I don't have to be ready July 5. I have to be ready in September, not July.'
"And he wasn't ready. So he told them that. That was not a satisfactory answer. They chose instead, I guess, to say things to you which weren't true."
Neff insists there is mistrust on both sides.
"And the mistrust on Troy's side comes from the fact that he does not feel that in the past, they've done the best thing for him," Neff said. "They've done the best thing for themselves. And he feels like as a result he has not gotten better. This time he's trying to do it his way on his own. He hopes then to be at full strength and not having to deal with questions and issues."
