It's no secret the Minnesota Timberwolves have decided to start shopping their No. 2 overall pick around the league and trying to gauge its value. The question is, will they find what they're looking for? Personally, I think the answer is probably not. It will be hard to find a team willing to pay what the Wolves are asking for at this point, but as we get closer, talks will likely heat up and the Wolves will become more willing to compromise.
The Wolves already have enough young talent. They have more than enough youth, and many believe it's time to start balancing youth and experience. The best way to accomplish this is probably trading their second overall pick for a more reliable option. Going for the home run is good, but the Wolves have swung and missed too many times.
As scouts get a little more comfortable analyzing the players in this year's draft, suitors will likely emerge in bunches for either Derrick Williams or Enes Kanter at No. 2. At this point, it's simply too early to start talking about trade specifics, but it's certainly not too early to start throwing around names and looking at some possibilities.
Not every suggestion will be perfect, but I hope you find some of these proposals intriguing. Here are eight teams that could or should make the Wolves a serious offer for the second pick.
It's also important to note that the Wolves have a huge trade exception and plenty of cap room so the financial aspect of any deal won't be a big factor in most cases.
