Continued: Souhan: Wolves have work to do to rebound from Kevin Love deal

Young won’t take the Wolves to the playoffs. Love at his best couldn’t do that.

The Wolves have existed for about 25 years now. In those 25 years, they have just once built a championship-caliber team — when they made the one-year, sell-your-soul-to-Hades deals with Sam Cassell and Latrell Sprewell to help Garnett.

For the Love trade to be eventually viewed as a coup, Saunders and company will have to prove this iteration of team management can develop a star and build around him. To date, the Wolves have made those two activities look as difficult as riding a unicycle while juggling chain saws.

 

Jim Souhan can be heard weekdays at noon and Sundays from 10 to noon on 1500 ESPN. @SouhanStribjsouhan@startribune.com
