Knee-jerk Notes #5: Chase Budinger

These are notes and observations meant to educate the Canis Hoopus community. In this post we'll look at things Chase Budinger does well, and what he doesn't do so well. Yesterday, the Minnesota Timberwolves and Milwaukee Bucks played a preseason game. These two teams met last Friday in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where the Bucks defeated the Wolves - I don't recall the score at this time. On Wednesday, though, unlike in the 1st meeting, the game was televised and henceforth available online this morning. Shouts to Russian Bee for the torrents. These are notes. This is one preseason game. We are...

Trade Scenarios For Chase Budinger

The Pistons are reportedly interested in the very available Chase Budinger. How could the Pistons and Timberwolves seal the deal? Chase Budinger is being shopped by Minnesota, and Detroit is reportedly interested. If the Pistons were to acquire him, his career would have gone full circle, because Budinger was, of course, drafted in 2009 by Detroit with the 44th pick, and later traded to the Houston Rockets (who are also interested), for a future second-round pick (which turned out to be superstar Kim English).  All that being said, I've played with the trade machine (as you do when...

Pacers trade rumors: Does Chase Budinger make sense for the Pacers?

Pacers trade rumors: Does Chase Budinger make sense for the Pacers?

Rare will be the trade rumor this season that doesn't include the Pacers, so it is no surprise to hear they are interested in what Minnesota may have to offer. While watching Minnesota play the Pacers in the preseason opener, I was struck by how many young wing players the team has and the fact they were all playing ahead of Chase Budinger, an athletic wing player who has caused the Pacers problems in the past (don't forget the 'man' in ball-man defense, Gerald Green!). Corey Brewer, Robbie Hummel, Shabazz Muhammad and Glenn Robinson II are all in the mix at small forward along with...

Vincent Goodwill of the Detroit News has confirmed Detroit's interest with his own league source.

Wolves shooting coach gives Budinger tiny tips for big shots

Timberwolves forward Chase Budinger said there might be some hesitation among teammates to play new shooting coach Mike Penberthy in a game of H-O-R-S-E. It was a hypothetical posed by a reporter, but Budinger said, "I don’t think many guys would take him up on that." Penberthy, who was a sharpshooter on the Los Angeles Lakers team that won the 2001 NBA title, can still drain shots. "He can still light it up out here with the best of them," Budinger said. "Watching him, he will rattle out 10 in a row from three without even trying." After practice Thursday, […] The post Wolves shooting...
