The Timberwolves have acquired 24-year old power forward Darko Milicic from the Knicks for 32-year old forward Brian Cardinal. Milicic was deep in Mike D’Antoni’s Dog House in New York but the T-Wolves will give him a fresh start and another opportunity to prove himself in the NBA. Milicic has played in only 8 games (0 starts) this season for the Knicks and he averaged 8.9 minutes, 2.0 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game. He has now played in 345 games (98 starts) in his NBA career and he has averaged 17.0 minutes, 5.4 points, 4.0 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game. Brian Cardinal was looking like a player nearing the end of the line in his NBA career this year for the T-Wolves. He played in 27 games (0 starts) for the Timberwolves this season and he averaged 9.0 minutes, 1.7 points, 0.9 rebounds and 0.7 assists per game. The T-Wolves really had nothing to lose in making a trade like this one.
