Walker “too good a player” to be sitting on bench

Veteran Antoine Walker’s place behind the Wolves bench, in a suit, for
Thursday’s late loss to San Antonio looks like the start of things to
come, unless the two sides, as the Wolves did with Juwan Howard last
fall, can agree to a contract buyout that would allow Walker to leave
by the March 1 waiver deadline so he could land on some team’s playoff
roster.
 
Walker said he and coach Randy Wittman mutally decided he would be
inactive for Thursday’s game after that afternoon’s trading deadline
came and went with the Wolves unable to trade Walker…
 
 
Walker on his limited playing time: 

“I can’t do that,” he said of sitting in uniform without playing. “I’m too good a player.”
 
 
 
Walker said a buyout doesn’t make sense if it doesn’t happen in time for him to be able to join a team that appears headed to the playoffs.
 
Wolves vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale said Thursday that a buyout would seem unlikely.
 
“I’m not sure that Glen is feeling buyouts and stuff like that,” McHale said.
