Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

He already had credibility before that, but he gained more that day — enough that we need to take his report of a Chicago offer to the Wolves quite seriously.
Per Sheridan, Chicago is offering a package of Doug McDermott, Nikola Mrotic and Taj Gibson in a potential Kevin Love deal.
Such a deal is extremely intriguing to the Timberwolves, but there is a catch — it cannot be completed for another 29 days after McDermott and Mirotic signed their rookie contracts Tuesday. NBA rules prohibit rookies from being traded within the first 30 days after they sign. And that could be good news for the Cleveland Cavaliers, who still have not signed Andrew Wiggins and may not do so until the end of this week. That will give them time to present Minnesota with an offer that can be acted upon immediately.
We still like the Cavs deal better because it offers, in our mind, the biggest chance for a home run player (Andrew Wiggins), but this is a much better fall back plan than anything else we’ve heard, and ans Sheridan notes if it can speed up a Cavs deal, all the better.
Also, it should be noted that if the Cleveland and Chicago deals being reported are true, it makes Golden State’s reported unwillingness to include Klay Thompson in a deal that much more absurd. Thanks for playing, Golden State.
