See, it all makes sense with David Kahn now. He knew exactly what he was doing.

Jonny Flynn didn't participate during the summer league due to a hip injury and it's bad enough that he'll undergo surgery next week to fix the problem, reports Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports . According to Spears, Flynn will be out 3-4 months.

What a wild summer for Minnesota. Wesley Johnson turns out to be a bit of a controversial draft pick because of DeMarcus Cousins' talent. Martell Webster is acquired on draft day. Darko Milicic gets a hefty extension. Then the Wolves start dealing, grabbing Michael Beasley, Delonte West, Sebastian Telfair, while trading former franchise player Al Jefferson to Utah. Luke Ridnour is signed. Kahn is fined for saying Beasley smoked too much pot. And now their starting point guard is hurt. It's unlucky and weird, but just seems about right for the Wolves right now.

Luke Ridnour, who was signed recently, will start until Flynn returns. Delonte West who the Wolves acquired yesterday will reportedly be released, but Sebastian Telfair who came along in the deal can serve as a third point guard for the Wolves while Flynn recovers.

Ramon Sessions was traded to Cleveland.  Him, Ryan Hollins, and a second round pick for Sebastian Telfair and Delonte West who was cut.

The Wild are the NHL franchise. They had a few good seasons but they are definately not run right. Better than the Wolves though.

We have four?  With Jonny Flynn hurt, Luke Ridnour, and the just-acquired Sebastian Telfair...not aware of any others.  And if you just thought "Well, there's Rubio" then you just thought wrong.  How many minutes is Rubio going to play this year?  How many roster spots is he using?  How much salary cap space is he eating up?  Until those numbers rise above 0, he doesn't count.  With Flynn hurt and Telfair just arriving, we have two.  When Flynn returns, we'll have three; no more, no less.

End result of a summer of change: Minnesota will be as bad or even worse than they were over the past few years.
