    T'Wolves Expected To Trade Al Jefferson?

    The Timberwolves' interest in Tyrus Thomas could indicate that they're gearing up to trade Al Jefferson this summer.

    Yahoo! Sports reports that "Jefferson is expected to be traded for a talented, young small forward." There are no guarantees this will happen, but it would leave Tyrus and Kevin Love paired as a talented if undersized frontcourt.

    The Al Jefferson trade rumors keep coming up, does Minnesota really think they are better off with Kevin Love?

    I don't think they've made up their mind which guy they want to get rid of. I think they just want an athletic power forward to pair with either Love or Jefferson.

    Or maybe they do want to get rid of Jefferson. Hard to say. Nothing Minnesota does really makes any sense.

    Like I said before, would they really trade their franchise player twice in less than 4 seasons? I would hope not.

    Bulls would be good for years if they traded for him. Kirk and Ty for Al

    Jefferson to the Mavs for Dampier and Barea and Tim Thomas. Lots of expiring deals. Very tempting...

    they said they were going to trade him in the offseason for a talented young Small Forward. Only two come to my mind: Deng and Rudy Gay.

    I can see Iggy more than everyone else.

    Memphis is already set at the front court so it can't be Gay.

    Perhaps not for the immediate future, but certainly depending on what we receive in return for Jefferson, coupled with Love's upside, I don't see any problem with it.

    Love is a better rebounder, a better outlet passer, and has more range with his shot. Al is a better inside scorer, but there's nothing that tells me Love couldn't come at least close to Jefferson's offensive production at some point (I see him as an 18/15 type player). Even if he doesn't, however, I believe he makes it up in other areas.

    We essentially have 2 players for 1 position, and Jefferson is the most logical choice as trade bait (and I'm sure this is the Wolves thinking as well) as Love's contract is much more salary cap friendly.

    They wouldn't win the championship. They probably wouldn't get that close.

    i don't really consider al jefferson to be a franchise player at all, it seems he has gotten a lot worse even since his injury thing happened, and kevin love has been playing great so far.

    IMO i think al jeff is overrated but with that said, a tyrus for al jeff swap would rape the t-wolves.
