With NBA Draft just one day away, the Minnesota Timberwolves still have 5 picks. This off-season is going to be one to remember....for the good reasons. The Wolves drafted 3 PG's in the first round this time last year. Look how that turned out, 15 wins. Many anticipate the Wolves drafting a wing scorer such as Wesley Johnson out of Syracuse or trading up for an Evan Turner. However, there are reports and rumors of big trades on draft day. Many involving either Love or Jefferson whom don't particularly like playing with one another.
This highly anticipated draft with particularly low talent will surely be one to remember for the Wolves. With unhappy players, numerous cap space, and most of all draft picks. This is my reasoning for putting together the "what-ifs" and actual possibilities below.
Wolves trade Al Jefferson, 4th overall pick, 26th overall pick to 76ers
Andre Iguodala and 2nd overall pick
*Wolves sign UFA Rudy Gay
Therefore, the Wolves select Derrick Favors with the 2nd pick and select Damien James with the 16th pick.
PG- Jonny Flynn
SG- Andre Iguodala
SF- Rudy Gay
PF- Derrick Favors
C- Kevin Love
PF/SF Damien James
SG/SF Corey Brewer
