T Wolves: 6th pick and players (and/or cap relief)

Wizards: 3rd pick (targeting Enes Kanter)

Jazz: 2nd pick (targeting Derrick Williams)



And Minnesota would move back and dump salary or add veterans such as Paul Millsap.

Minnesota might not be done at that as there is speculation that they would trade 6 to either move down again or add more established veterans.

The deal would likley involve established players. Some names that have been mentioned: Jonny Flynn and Devin Harris.

Cavs- Irving
Jazz- Williams
Wizards- Kanter
Cavs- Vessely or Thompson
Raptors- Knight

this. But if this trade adds multiple vets and makes us stronger, I won't be against it. There is sooooo much floating on out there it's crazy!!! It's exciting to be a Wolves fan again!!

As much as I would love to see the Sixers get the 2nd pick, it makes a whole lot more sense from Minnesota's standpoint to give it up for Millsap and the 6th pick...

That's a win for Minnesota for sure...

GREATNESS ONE

I'm still not sure I'm sold on Williams being a small forward, but if the Jazz are, thats a great addition for them, especially with Derrick Favors gaining more playing time if Millsap is shipped.

I always thought this made a lot of sense for all of the teams involved.

Kanter would be a great fit playing PF in Washington.

The Jazz get to upgrade significantly and pick up Derrick Williams. While they have to give up Milsap, it gives more playing time to Derrick Favours.

Minnesota gets a very solid veteran player in Milsap, and still get a chance to pick up a player at #6, or use that pick to bring in some more veteran pieces.

craigstouffer‎ Don't see how #wizards could have interest in Burks at No. 18 unless they planned to part ways w/ Nick Young; there's no indication they do.

Hawkeye15
06-23-2011, 01:37 PM
the only reason he does bad is because he plays the triangle

or because he can't shoot, finish at the rim, stay in front of a ball handler, or go through a single game without turning it over at some point on 3 consecutive possessions...

He may be the worst defending PG of any player that has been given minutes in the NBA the last 2 years, and he has no business running an offense. He would be slightly better in a system that pulled the ball out of his hands early, but he is pretty bad man

I have watched nearly every game of his career, and understand stats. He has been bad. Real bad

stick with McGee for now because Kanter can play PF. Blatche, if anyone wants him, can and should be dealt.

MCGee and Kanter would compliment each other perfectly.

That'd leave Blatche to get traded at some point or come off the bench (whch would actually be nice)

Imagine: Wall, Young, Lweis, Kanter, McGee
Than Crawford and Blatche off the bench would be awesome (both very good scorers).

The Wolves dont have any bad contracts so it has to be for veteran players, If they can get Millsap and the 6th thats a come up but what do the Wiz give up to move to 3, they dont have any vets?

Almost every Mock draft has Knight to the raptors now, good day for Toronto if this comes true. Also, it's good to see Thompson so high he's got lots of potential IMO(already got the post game down and he's only 19) just needs to develop a mid range shot and work on his defensive rebounds.

He reminds me of another Texas Longhorn, Lamarcus Aldridge

If he just develops a mid range shot

Why? In trading Millsap youre opening the door for Favors to get more playing time and time to develop. Also D.Will can eat up some minutes at the 4 as well.

Plus it might be worth it to move up in a "two player" draft

because realistically how is williams that much different/better then millsap? besides why would the wolves want millsap?

I mena the Jazz would have to believe he can be their starter at the 3. Thats how they're different.

Wolves want Vet's not sure why they would want Millsap but he'd be a great 6th man. I'm sure they'd get a vet from WSH too. kahn needs some wins this year or he's gone. He's looking for some vetereans cuz they're the youngest team in the league.

2 for 6, 18, Millsap and a player from the Wiz 9I'd imagine either Blatche) actually seems like a pretty good get.

Probably the best offer on the table. Unless the Iggy deal is still there.

As a Wolves fan there is no way we do this trade if the main piece coming back is Paul Millsap.... the entire reason we want to trade the pick is because DWill plays 3/4 which we already have an abundance of.
i.e. he plays the same position as Millsap=pointless trade for us
McGee or Young would have to be our main targets

The wolves want vets. Adding D.Will isn't going to get them many more wins. Millsap and a rookie at 6 and 18 and possibly a player from the wiz > than D.Will. Kahn needs wins to keep his Jay-Oh-Bee.

it's not going to be McGee if it was we would've just traded 6 and McGee for 2. And It can't be Young cuz he's a RFA.

honestly, why do you have to hate on everything wolves? Why post in the thread if thats all you do, it honestly starts to get annoying after a while.

That bench would be pretty nice, AR showed last year when we gaveh im minutes he can be a nice player. On top of that, Ridnour is an ideal backup, instead of last year being our starter, and that #6 pick should net us a solid player unless we deal it which should also net us a solid vet.

The Wolves, for the first time in a long time, seem to be in the drivers seat in regards to trade discussions...

I like their strategy... They are trying to gauge everyones interest in the 2 pick...

Even if they don't deal the pick and end up taking Williams, they know that's the best option they have...

I like a Love, Rubio, Beasley, and Williams core... Wolves are doing some good work...
