Scenario: The Cleveland Cavaliers surprisingly select Derrick Williams first overall, then the Timberwolves select the coveted Kyrie Irving.
Impact: The arrival of Ricky Rubio will have more than the normal amount of Timberwolves fans tuning into the NBA draft on Thursday night.
Many of these fans will not be devout followers that know this team well. So, if this scenario were to happen, there would be a definite collective verbal outrage among these fans.
After hearing about the impending greatness of their new Spanish point guard, these fans would wonder why the team has just selected yet another point guard.
Eventually, they would see that, in this scenario, Irving will be traded.
The problem is, teams will know that Minnesota is planning on moving this pick. They will be able to manipulate the 'Wolves into a potentially disastrous deal.
So, if the Cavs shake up the night and select Williams, Minnesota should attempt to quickly move the second pick in the alotted time. This is why they need to be thoroughly prepared for Thursday night.
Hopefully, in this scenario, the 'Wolves can add a pick and a substantial veteran.
In this case, Minnesota would inch closer to the goal of winning as soon as possible.
