The Wolves not long ago finished their fourth consecutive 3.5-hour camp workout at their new training facility and they'll take Saturday off so they can bus to Mankato for their annual lasagna dinner at owner Glen Taylor's house.
Don't expect Shabazz Muhammad to chow down. He beefed up to 260-plus pounds last summer after he didn't play the season's final six weeks, but on Friday said he's down to a svelte 217 pounds after working out these last two months with the unorthodox, San Francisco-based trainer he calls "Crazy Frank."
"Maybe just a little," he said when asked about the lasagna. "But I'll have a big salad."
Muhammad declared him fit and his feet as fast as can be after Friday's Workout No. 4, an afternoon when Sam Mitchell held Ricky Rubio and Kevin Garnett out of the session-ending scrimmage just to give them a breather after four long days.
"It's a long season," Mitchell said.
A couple other things:
* Former Wolves coach Rick Adelman watched practice for the second consecutive day. He was affable and chatty in a conversation afterward and seemed happy and relaxed living the retired life in Portland, where he reports his wife Mary Kay is doing well, too. He'll return home Saturday. He was in town visiting his son/Wolves assistant coach David and his new grandbabby.
* Gorgui Dieng talked briefly after practice about a brewing sex scandal at the University of Louisville, where he played college ball. A forthcoming book alleges a UL staffer paid an escort service to provide sex for recruits during the tmie Dieng played there. There's a couple quotes in the notes section of my story about Kevin Martin/Zach LaVine at shooting guard that will hit the web soon but basically he said he knows the staffer accused and considered him a good guy but said he is "unaware" of any such things ever happening at his alma mater.
