With Butler on the roster, and a hole at point guard, it seems like the T-Wolves may have one too many All-Star caliber wing players. Wiggins has shown marked improvement and is likely seen favourably by most GMs. He's not forcing his way out, and he's on a rookie contract. All pluses that make him valuable and give the T-Wolves leverage.

It seems clear that Townes and Butler will be soaking up a lot of the shots, and Wiggins may regress if he's not getting as many touches, so should the T-Wolves look at other options? A trade that packages Wiggins up with Rubio and brings in D&3 wing with a higher quality PG who isn't the worst shooter in the league (even if he is a great passer and defender)?

I think this team would benefit most from a quality PG at this point. A vet with some proven leadership skills. CP3 would be the best fit in my mind, but he likely isn't an option.

Any other guys who would fit in well there? If only John Stockton, Steve Nash, or Jason Kidd were still 28.

LaVine and Dunn were their SGs (Rubio and Tyus Jones the PGs). So it feels like they're just going to slot JB into that spot (maybe he goes to SF with Wiggins at SG but that's really inconsequential). I don't see a trade.

if they did though, I think DEN is interesting. Lots of pieces to move and they could really fill out MIN's roster for them. But I don't think you move Wiggins now.

Butler or Wiggins can just slide to SG.

I am not high in Wiggins, I think he is a volume scorer who doesn't rebound, distribute, or defend. But, with the pressure gone to be our wing defender, and the ball out of his hands in isolations that will go to Butler, perhaps Andrew can learn from Butler.

I don't think Wiggins (hell I KNOW) will ever be a star, but he could at least round out into a good 3rd option on a really good team. The fact that Wolves fans woke up today with Rubio/Wiggins still on the roster and Jimmy Butler added, is a huge win.

Agreed. See how it works out. But one thing Butler doesn't help a lot with is shooting. He's decent from behind the arc, but Minnesota needs players to stretch the floor. It's going to get crowded with Butler, Wiggins and Towns all trying to operate in the post.
Denver does have some nice pieces, albeit at shooting guard, which is where I think Butler should play. It they did slot Butler at small forward, Harris would fit perfectly at shooting guard. One intriguing option is Galinari, who's becoming an unrestricted free agent. He'd fit great at small forward in Minnesota, but how much would you offer a guy with such health concerns?

It's called player development. He's young enough to develop most of what you're saying he can't do. Great value? He's getting paid $7.5 million.. that's some darn good value to me. I'd trade anyone on OKC not named RWB for the guy.

They shouldn't even consider trading Wiggins. They have their main core set, now it's time to put the right pieces around them.

I hope they don't overpay Millsap, Lowry or something like that.

Ilyasova and Mills seem like some good fits.

If LeBron leaves next season, they should go and try to get Kyrie Irving who would be perfect.

For what?

He's on a rookie deal and they need someone to age with Towns as Towns develops into a top 10 player. He may not be a superstar but you don't need to gamble on another superstar when Towns is already there. Building around Towns is good enough.

If he's just going to give you scoring, that's damn near enough. look at Klay. The guy just defends and scores. Wiggins gets paid $7.5 million and is an offensive threat out there. He might not be a playmaker and needs to work on his defense but with Butler there, Wiggins role changes and he'll be forced to play defense now. I think Thibs knew Minny was still a developing team and wanted Wiggins to work on his offensive game first. We're probably going to see Minny become a better defensive team by next season. Butler and Rubio is one of the better defensive backcourts. We're paying Oladipo $20 or so million and he does just about the same thing.. a better shooter and maybe playmaker but that's what guys who can score 20 ppg will command these days.

I wasn't never super high on Wiggins and thought he was always going to be more of a role player than a stud. But I don't see the purpose of moving him now. The butler move is exciting, but there's not any moves they are going to make this year to overtake golden state, so why not see what you have with a butler/Wiggins/ towns core.

Rubio is the interesting peice. I could see them keeping him. If they don't, I could see George hill being an interesting target for the point. He's a little older than you'd like and is allegedly asking for way too much money, but his style might be a really good fit.

Bostonjorge
06-23-2017, 02:09 PM
Wiggins is still to young. Okc had KD, Westbrook and harden and they missed the playoffs. The next season they got the 8th seed. Then they ran thru the west the next season.

It takes time to develop and win with a young team. Way to early to give up on Wiggins. Wiggins also has a veteran to lean form like KAT did with KG his rookie year.

I think that's pretty balanced offense/defense with improved shooting. Don't think that's enough to get KP from the Knicks though, even though Wiggins could work really well under Jackson.

I think Rubio has his clear faults. He does have control of the team, was exponentially better as a scoring threat the 2nd half, and for what he makes, amd what we need of him, he is the best option we have.

He might very well hold us back come playoffs. But he might lead a high powered offense too.

Need to add shooters to really get the benefit of his drive and find ability.

Wiggins will be fine. His iq is what's slowing his progress, but he is a willing learner and worker so he'll keep getting better, it's just not at the rate people are expecting. He is still real young. You can't teach his athleticism and I think his game can translate in the playoffs. His defense will continue to get better.

Before Parker got injured Parker had the more impressive stats. Also playoff team. Wiggins posted a few monster games to inflate his stats. Parkers value is low cause of 2 ACL injuries so Milwaukee keeps Parker. Also I'm hoping Parker signs on as a discount kinda like glass ankles Curry did. That give the Bucks some wiggle room for a while. Cause Middleton's final year is a player option. So he most certainly opts out for the max. Plus we got dead weight contracts of Henson, Delly, Telly. Then pending RFA Snell. Moose will be a big expiring contract after this season.

MIL seems in really great position to keep all their guys but pretty limited in what they can add because so much dead weight. By my quick sportscaster check you guys should be able to spend about $15M next year if you let Moose walk, wait to extend Parker, and dont re-sign Snell this year. Then after spending you go over the cap to extend Parker.

Problem is that takes you up close to the luxury tax because Parkers ~$25M extension would be about $17M over the cap hold he counts for to spend in FA first. Then the following year Middleton and Brogden are due for extensions. Then the following year Thon would be due for an extension.

With the dead weight all expiring over that spans you guys should be able to keep everyone but I don't see much room to add to the core. I think you guys will have to focus on developing and growing from within to make to the next level.

Adam Morrison and buddy heild were great scorers in college. Wiggins was great in college. Hell even Sean May was good in college. My point is what the hell does college scoring prove in the nba were the rules are different and defense is much tougher?

Wiggins can and will stretch the floor. KAT can stretch the floor. He's money from 16 feet and in, but he can shoot the three very well for a big.

The great thing is Wiggins is a veteran that is still younger than many rookies. He's physically going to become a man over the next three years so there will be huge gains from him as a player. He is going to be soning dudes physically.

Your overthinking this. They got serious top level talent in a Jimmy and KAT. They have two guys who are scratching the surface of there final potential and are improving every day for the next 3 years in KAT and Wigg. We got 3pt shooters on the bench. Wigg and KAT are both efficient from 3. We can find more in free agency. What you can't find is Jimmy.

This^ I'd trade him for Porzingis.

I'd like to see them trade Rubio/Dieng for a Morris type, and go after Hill in FA.

The real question is whom do they got in the starting line up to spread the floor for Kat to operate in the paint? while having to share it with wiggins and butler who also need the paint to be open for them to operate? No shooters= double teams and zone defense's...? Rubio butler wiggins dieng kat are not 3pt threats.

Ibaka would be perfect for them.

Can stretch the floor and doesn't need the ball in his hands to be effective. Defense has slipped but would be a good fit beside KAT still.

Gotta think Ibaka is like 2-3 years older than advertised though.

Millsap would be good for them too but would cost more and is older.
