I'll make this prediction about tonight's game at Philadelphia: I bet tonight's returning son gets more cheers from the hometown crowd than tomorrow night's.
Tonight, it's Thaddeus Young's return to Philly, where he played his first seven NBA seasons.
The 76ers welcomed him back warmly. When he arrived at Wells Fargo Center, he found a hand-written note from GM Sam Hinkie and three of his Sixers jerseys framed set on easels near his locker.
"It was a great seven years, an amazing seven years," Young told reporters before tonight's game. "But it's a business, so you have to move on."
Tomorrow night's game is, of course, Kevin Love's retun to Target Center for first time since last August's trade that sent him to Cleveland.
Anticipating a sellout, the Wolves plan to sell 500 standing-room-only seats -- at $25 each -- Saturday morning starting at 10 am.
A couple other things:
* Veteran guard Mo Williams has rejoined the team after being away Wednesday to attend a funeral, but will not play because of that hip he hurt Sunday in Atlanta.
The Wolves again will go with Zach LaVine and newcomer Lorenzo Brown at the point.
* Flip Saunders ruled out Ricky Rubio for either of this next two weekend games, but left open the possibility that he could return next week, possibly as soon as Monday at Dallas.
* Kevin Martin will come off the bench tonight for second straight game.
