    I know. But with Minnesota luck, who the F knows what will happen...


    PSD Grammar Lesson #1:

    a) their - stands for "belonging to them"
    b) there - means "over there" as in location
    c) they're - short for "they are"

    Anyone else in on Ben Simmons? I think it would be a good move to get him, he fixes the defense pretty quickly and is a buy low(er) candidate than previous rumors. Will still take a decent haul to get him but I would do it...

    I am in to an extent but I would probably balk at their asking price in the end.

    He plays defense and is good in transition but when it comes to half court offense as seen there are major issues. He can't really shoot at all and defenses don't overly respect it, despite some of his playmaking he isn't a threat on that end really. What does make sense is having a couple scoring studs and shooting around him which we can provide depending on the trade.

    Would you trade Russell/Beasley for Simmons? Assume we can make other moves to round out the roster/get back spacing just value wise I am asking (it's been noted elsewhere so thought I'd use this example).

    I'd do Beasley, Reid, and Rubio and a first for Simmons. I think that should be more then enough to get him. Reid has been a beast but if they prefer I would consider doing Okogie, Culver, Vanderbilt, or Nowell or maybe a combination. If we kept this years first in the top 3 and wanted to flip it for Simmons I would be ok with this as long as its not the number 1 overall.

    This where I'm at I think, if they can do the deal and keep Russell I think it helps a lot. If they give up Russell, I don't know how much better the team really is.

    Timberwolves Trade/Ideas/Rumors Thread 2.0

    In the main forum I said my guess is we would try for Beasley++. Id add basically any of the guys mentioned above too along with other role players in whatever combination they wanted really. I would basically go all in outside the other 4 starters you have mentioned.
    I said I think we would balk at Russell/Beasley for various reasons.

    I think we would have the scoring/spacing to make it work with him if the asking price was that low though. My guess is they will go for a better guard to pair with embiid though than a package like that (we would likely need 3rd team)
