My Quick Take: Juwan must be stuck in a time warp. The power forward probably believes the year is 1997, when he was an emerging power forward with the and when there was actually a demand for his services.
Right now, Howard is a decent veteran piece, capable of handling some nice back-up minutes. He’s also a decent enough guy. That said, the former star is on the downside of his career, pulling in a somewhat pricey mid-level exception salary.

Marko Jaric, a back-up guard, also wants out of the Wolves’ den. No idea if there’s a market for the Euro. He’s battled injuries and also makes the mid-level exception salary.
The Howard and Jaric situation proves that established players won’t come to now that Kevin Garnett is in . This will plague the Wolves until their young players develop into a somewhat competitive club.
