Wolves Hope Derrick Williams Feels Challenged By Kirilenko Signing
David Kahn acknowledged that Derrick Williams will have to improve his play in order to receive more playing time in his second season.
The Wolves signed Andrei Kirilenko, which will certainly impact the minutes he could have otherwise received.
"I think it challenges Derrick to seize the moment," Kahn said. "I think that, otherwise, Derrick probably would have been in a situation where he would have felt the minutes would just have been handed to him. I think in this environment, Derrick should feel challenged, and I hope he accepts the challenge to seize what he wants as opposed to it just being handed to him. There are no limitations on Derrick's ability to play here, from a minutes standpoint."
