Wolves Updates 10/9

TV On The Radio didn't know the Wolves played basketball but they did like the claws.

T-Hud says after a week of training camp, his ankle is holding up just fine and pain-free.

Second round pick Craig Smith looks like he'll be staying in town instead of going to the D-League.

"They're guys who do the dirty work," Casey said. "Craig is probably the most skilled right now. He's got size, he can pull away from the basket a little bit. He's an excellent passer. His jump shot is getting more solid.
"Whereas Dog [Madsen] is just a paint guy. He's one of those root hog guys, in the paint rooting around, making things happen. Justin is a little more perimeter, especially defensively."

Mike James on playing with the Wolves:
"The Big Ticket is a big reason I came here," James said, referring to T'wolves' star Kevin Garnett. "This team has been underachieving, and he at least deserves a chance to get back to the playoffs. Hopefully we have enough talent here to keep a smile on his face."
