    Default Wolves to add Alexey Shved

    According to ESPN at least:

    http://espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id/81...g-alexey-shved

    The reason I think that this deserves its own thread is that Shved is a real steal, imo.

    Shved is an athletic PG / SG that stands at 6'5" without shoes, knows how to shoot, is a good general and can play D.

    According to Associate Press he is signed to a 3 year, $10 million dollar deal.

    He played good the other night in the FIBA qualifier. I don't know where they play him guessing both the 1 and the 2. When Rubio is heathly I would pair them together. Like the guy from draft express said the other day best value is over seas free agents in free agency. I still think there are about 10 more guys who could sign and be good value signs this off season

    Probably but most of them would be prospects. I've been watching Shved since the last summer when I first saw him playing with Russia in the Eurobasket. From day 1, he struck me as a potential NBA player.

    He seems quite ready to play in this league. He has the needed tools.

    In general, I'm not someone that asks for trades but gosh I'd love it if we were to make a move for him

    Anyway, I can monitor him with the Wolves as well

    Ya I watched him in the Euro basket 2 He is solid I just dont know how he fits with the Wolves. But for the price he is a steal even if the fit isnt great.

    Yeah, I'm not sure how he'll fit the Wolves either. We'll just wait and see, I guess

    I just dont see who you pair him with defensively he isnt very good IMO. Rubio is a bad match and so is Ridnour offensively he will be good with whoever. But defensively the Wolves are gonna suffer with him playing beside average to bad defenders at pg.

    He would of been a great fit in Boston IMO. The Cavs were said to be interested as well he would be a great fit with Kyrie also.

    Well, in Europe he was a good defender. In the NBA he will not be anything in particular but I don't think he'll be a giant liability either.

    He would be better with better defenders around him, though. But I think that he'll be able to become a capable defender.

    I'm bummed about this. I know we've scouted him in the past. Who knows what the terms are, maybe we got priced out of it, but Shved's a nice player. I'd have very much welcomed him. Live and learn I guess.
