Wolves' Shved hopes to impress in summer league

MINNEAPOLIS -- Back in April, it may have been difficult to imagine Alexey Shved donning a Timberwolves practice jersey and scuttling around the team's training facility. The gangly guard had just wrapped up a feeble sophomore campaign, one unproductive enough for the Minnesota front office to entertain the notion of buying out his contract. His name's also been brought up...

Wolves season report card: Alexey Shved

  This is the first in a 14-part series evaluating each Timberwolves player's performance during the 2013-14 season. Erratic, sporadic and problematic. Alexey Shved means well. His effort level is unquestionable. But it's become clear after two seasons the 25-year-old Russian isn't quite NBA-ready yet.

Wolves Monday: Former coach proud of Alexey Shved's growth

MINNEAPOLIS -- Timberwolves officials had better keep an eye on Ettore Messina on Monday night.

Alexey Shved, Russia bounced early from EuroBasket event

This time a year ago, Alexey Shved was basking in the glory of international basketball stardom, a bronze Olympic medal hanging somewhere in his possession. For the second-year Timberwolves reserve, that aura carried over to EuroBasket 2013. The same can't be said for the Russian Federation as a whole, though.

Wolves guard Alexey Shved re-tooling game in offseason

MINNEAPOLIS -- Directing traffic and slicing through frontcourt double teams inside the Target Center Lifetime Fitness center Wednesday afternoon, Alexey Shved gave off every impression of a seasoned NBA veteran.

Timberwolves intrigued by rookie Shved

MINNEAPOLIS With Alexey Shved, listening is an effort. You're trying so hard to hear him that you forget what he's saying, willing so hard for it to be louder and slower that the words cease to make sense.It's not that Shved doesn't speak English. He does, and pretty well for a player who was born 5,000 miles from Minneapolis and lived in Russia until last month...
