Wolves Will Pick Up McCants' OptionAccording to Steve Aschburner, Kevin McHale said the team is going to exercise its option on the third year of Rashad McCants' contract. That means $1.77 million for McCants next season.
"We like Shaddy," McHale said Monday after the team's practice. "We're going to pick it up. The only way we wouldn't have was if his rehab wasn't going well, to the point where you said, 'The poor kid is never going to do it.' That's not the case."
Bad news for Kings fans, good news for Wolves fans:
Mike Bibby injured his thumb during a Sunday night game and is expected to miss the first couple weeks of the season. That means he won't be playing when the Kings face the Wolves in the Nov 1 season opener.
