David Kahn Has Tough Words For Derrick Favors

In an usually bold statement, Minnesota General Manager David Kahn questioned the conditioning of potential top five draft pick Derrick Favors, who worked out for the Timberwolves, according to 1500ESPN.com.

“He isn’t in shape,” Minnesota Timberwolves general manager David Kahn said after Favors’ workout at Target Center. “You could see that right off the bat.”

Coach Kurt Rambis, owner Glen Taylor and other notables also were on hand as the 18-year-old power forward drilled on the arena’s main floor — gassing easily and fighting his jumper but impressing with his length, leaping and ability to run the floor at 6-10 and 248 pounds.

Kahn went on to take a swipe at Favors’s NBA readiness, calling him “raw” and “undeveloped.”

“Liked him, as we thought we would,” Kahn said. “He’s quite a specimen when he’s 18 years old. … You have to be patient for him because he’s so raw and still so undeveloped. But I think he has the opportunity to be a very fine player in this league.”
