It is very obvious the Minnesota Timberwolves are shopping the second overall pick of the 2011 NBA Draft. Derrick Williams is going to be a great player, but the Wolves already have a similar player on the team in Michael Beasley.

I have heard some interesting trade scenarios that involve Andre Iguodala or Danny Granger coming to Minnesota. I have also heard some ridiculous ones involving a trade that would send the second pick to the Suns for Steve Nash—the same Steve Nash who is going to be 38 next year and wants to win now.

I have also heard rumors that the Wolves are potentially interested in trading with the L.A. Lakers for Pau Gasol or Andrew Bynum.

The media really have pushed the idea that the Lakers need to blow up and start over. Although they have taken this out of proportion, I am starting to believe it may not be a bad idea.
