    Not my preference on what should happen, just gathering all the rumors and putting them into form here...

    I think a lot of **** goes down tomorrow. I think we will be without one of Ridnour or Barea,..maybe trade Ridnour or Barea + #26 to move up to grab Hardaway somewhere between 19-22. Saunders has said he puts a lot of stock into character players, and I think the big character guys in this draft are Oladipo, and Hardaway....Oladipo will be too expensive to move up for, but Hardaway will not be. I feel Saunders will walk away with one of these guys, and since Oladipo will be too expensive, he will find a way to get Hardaway.

    If we dont resign peck I think this could be a decent deal.. I am not sure if suns would do that though

    I just read we turned down an offer from the Cavs..Kevin Love for 1st overall pick, Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters.. Im not saying I would do this deal because I hate the idea of getting younger...again.. but thats a pretty lucrative offer..

    We could grab Noel at 1 and possibly Cody Zeller at 9..

    I'm excited for the draft it's another step towards making us a playoff team if we make the right moves. I see us trading the 26th pick or taking someone overseas so we don't have to give out 2 guaranteed Contracts. I wouldn't be surprised if we trade the 26th pick for Marshon Brooks that seems to have some traction. It is definitely one of the most unpredictable drafts because we don't know who the number 1 pick is and where all these guys fall.

    after thinking about it, I don't want Brooks.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    For those who like Zeller how do you think he will fit in with the Wolves. I see him as a power forward but can he play center? I'm not a huge fan of his but he definitely does have some offensive skills.

    I'm with PJ on this. Have a feeling we'll trade up from the 26 for Hardaway. For the 9 pick, as much as I feel we should try grabbing McCollum, I don't think he'll fall to us. I do think talent are a bigger issues on the 1 and 2 spot, but for 3-5, the size and talent is what's need. I'm fine with whatever we decide to do, just hope we don't mess with some of the greater talent we have.

    Do not be surprised if Orlando takes the Minnesota Timberwolves up on swapping the No. 2 for the No. 9 and the No. 26. The Wolves are said to be very high on Victor Oladipo.

    The more I read on McCollum and his background, the more interesting I am in picking him. Personality plays a great role in games. What caught my attention was that he chooses education over millions of dollars. If you ask me, I'll say that's good choice. He choose to complete his education rather then entering the draft last year. He also didn't choose a big school over a small school when he have the talent to make it big with better school. I read somewhere of peoples asking him on playing on a small school and he just say "that's what they're missing, not his lost for going to a small school." He'll be a great pick for any team and I really hope he fall to us or we try to grab him.

    I would love Snell at 26.Could turn into a good defender with a nice stroke.

    Oladipo said he's heard rumors about Minnesota trading up for him. Had a real good workout and talk with Flip Saunders. Says it's possible

    More rumors about Oladipo I'm starting to think there is a legitimate chance that we move up to get him tomorrow.

    Timberwolves are reportedly targeting shooting guard with the No. 9 pick. But if Ben M, Oladipo and McCollum are off board, will they reach?
