Derrick Williams would be a Sixer if this takes place, and I'm guessing other pieces would be involved.


According to the source, the way to get Batum here is still via a sign-and-trade. David Kahn, the Wolves' president of basketball operations, will continue to talk with the Portland Trail Blazers throughout the weekend.

One scenario involves a three-way trade with Philadelphia. Andre Iguodala would go to Portland, Derrick Williams would go as part of a package to the Sixers and Batum would come to Minnesota. So far, Portland is balking.

Why is Portland balking?


Lillard-Matthews-Iggy-Aldrige-Hibbert.


That's probably one of the most talented, athletic and well-rounded defensive lineups in the West. :speechless:

I like it possibly for Williams. Why is someone giving up on him just one year into the league. Sure he had some bad games but he's a young kid. It's pretty balanced.

I don't want to give up Williams to pay the most Batum could be worth. It makes sense paying a lot for Batum as long as your not giving up assets.

Bad idea for Minny

There has to be more to it. Brand wouldn't have been dumped without a plan. I don't know, though. Maybe that plan is 2013/growth for the young guys.

Yes, umm why would Minnesota do this? I'm under the impression they are trying to get better........

There is rumor floating around that Brand will be amnestied. Not sure if it became official yet but there has been some talk.

Sixers would own the second picks from both the 2010-11 and 2011-12 drafts.

Iguodala is 5 years older and on an expiring contract where he may not want to return. They could have Batum locked in for the next 5 years.

Iggy has two years left I believe.

Derrick Williams is more valuable than Batum, so if I am Minny I push for a Iggy for Derrick Williams swap, maybe put a 1st rounder in there or something.

Why would the Blazers trade Batum for Iggy? He's much younger and would be locked up into a long term deal. Iggy is an expiring.

I dont know if it is official, but they have announced that they are amnestying him.

Not done done, because nothing can be done until the 11th, but confirmed that it's going to happen, yeah.

Perfect for all 3 teams. MN would have to throw in Wes Johnson, Webster, or Darko probably for the salaries.

Philly ends up with two former #2 draft picks that are both busts (Turner and Williams). Don't like it for philly at all.

If this happen's we (Raptors) wont do a trade for Iggy,
Great news for us

Iggy has two years left I believe.

He has an Early Termination Option for 2013-14 which he is going to invoke whether he wants to stay or not to get a long term contract before he is on the wrong side of 30.

How can you call Turner and Williams busts? They just entered the league in 2010 and 2011.

Honestly if this goes down and becomes official I might cry...We will finally be able to let the kids grow on top of getting young potential for iggy....GREAT DAY

would rather trade for iggy straight up if i was minny. iggy>batum
suprised to see almost a full out youth movement in philly... boom or bust kinda moves but i like jrue, Nyoung, Tyoung, ET, Williams core... lacking a young true big.
portland i would love to see screw themselves with a max hibb and a 12mill per batum.

Nobody is a bust unless they're a lottery pick and six years have gone by with little to show for. Pause yourself bruddah.

yup...lets be stuck in mediocrity forever and continue to let him screw the growth of turner on top of paying him to be the number 1 guy which he will never be... Having him here is killing our franchise...We have 0 shot at a title and need to get out of where we are.....I LOVE THIS MOVE

I think the 76ers could get more for Iggy, I mean Derrick Williams has potential but hell Kwame Brown still had potential in his 2nd yr too....

If i was Portland I would do that deal, and didn't Minny sign Batum to an offer sheet already?

Iggy isnt "screwing" the growth of Turner. This move is awful, our defense will go to **** too. No need for another unproven player. Iggy has more value then Derick Williams

They are getting more (if the deal happens). Williams "in a package" deal to PHI.

It would be good all the way around assuming the package with Williams is decent Iggy gone would be nice to let other guys get on the court like Mo Harkless and Thad Young
