Darko gets 4 years, $20 million from Wolves

On the "David Kahn: The Greatest Hit s" mixtape, there will be a plethora of sweet tunes. My favorites being "The Night I Drafted Three Point Guards " and "I Don't Love You Anymore, Al Jefferson." Of course none will rival his seminal diddy, "Please Come Home, Ricky Rubio " but his latest chart-topper is sure to bring music to people's ears. It's a rip-roaring sing-along. What's it called?

"Darko Milicic Is My Answer At Center, Now And Forever ."

Kahn today reached an agreement with Darko Milicic on a 4 year, $20 million dollar deal , Chad Ford of ESPN reports. That's a lot of green for a guy widely considered to be one of the biggest draft busts in modern history. Kahn has been enamored with Milicic since he traded for him last year. While downplaying (and destroying the trade value) of Al Jefferson and Kevin Love, Kahn feels that Darko is the center of the future for the Wolves.

Can't you see it? Darko and Ricky Rubio running the pick and roll, Darko clumsily lumbering towards the rim towards a misguided pass Rubio has trouble adjusting to agianst NBA length? Missed alley oops, poorly executed pick and rolls, and of course, wasted possessions with Darko in the block. It's a dream come true!

In all seriousness, this is the beginning of the end for Al Jefferson in Minnesota. He's assured to be gone now, it's just a matter of figuring out where to dump him and how much of a loss they're going to take on the promising young power forward with excellent touch. After all, who needs those thing when you've got a 7-foot Serbian who loves the idea of thretening referees and their daughters and who was ready to head back to Serbia this summer.

And the hits just keep on coming...
