Yes, you read that right. And no, you are not on the Onion Sports website, either. Despite not having played in the NBA since being released by the Golden State Warriors in 2008, the Minnesota Timberwolves have agreed to sign free agent point guard Troy Hudson to a D-League contract as T-Hud (Or T-Thud) attempts to make a comeback to the NBA.
From a personal standpoint, I do not view Hudson’s NBA prospects in a particularly optimistic light. Even in his best days for the Timberpups, Hudson was an overpaid ball-hog – for lack of better phraseology – and as fun as it was to watch him some nights, I cannot imagine that at age 36 he has much left, if anything, in the tank.
It remains unclear regarding Hudson’s true intentions to get back into the NBA; perhaps he needs money, as the rap industry essentially turned him the cold shoulder as it did to many of his professional comrades. I can say with a certain confidence that T-Hud is not going to escape from Sioux Falls a Pup, unless David Kahn truly is a nut job. In that case, I’ll most likely stop covering the Wolves.
The Southern Illinois grad previously spent 5 seasons playing for the Wolves spanning 2002-07, and averaged 9.0 ppg and 3.4 apg in 11 seasons.
