The Wolves signed shooting guard Brandon Roy, forward Andrei Kirilenko, big men Greg Stiemsma and Lou Amundson and Russian guard Alexey Shved in addition to trading for hard-nosed Memphis forward Dante Cunningham. The massive makeover adds maturity, grit and, if Roy's knees hold up, some fourth-quarter playmaking to a team that desperately needed all of those things.
The Wolves also jettisoned Darko Milicic, Anthony Randolph and Michael Beasley in an effort to inject more commitment to a locker room that Love thought didn't take the games seriously enough.
Around the league
Clippers • Forward Matt Barnes pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of unlicensed driving and resisting arrest. Superior Court Judge Burt Pines sentenced him to two years of probation. The judge also ordered Barnes to complete 30 hours of community service and attend 13 counseling sessions with a private therapist. Authorities say Barnes, 32, resisted arrest when a Manhattan Beach police officer attempted to take him into custody in July on an outstanding warrant for driving with a suspended license.
Bucks • Milwaukee signed free-agent guard Marquis Daniels, a nine-year veteran who spent the last three years in a reserve role with Boston. The 31-year-old has averaged 8.2 points and 2.9 rebounds in 489 games.
