This would shock the whole draft, but it would not be the first big move by Minnesota today, as they fired their coach Kurt Rambis.
The Timberwolves are fishing to see what kinds of trades are around for the second pick.
This would be a positive for both sides if it could happen because the Knicks could get one of the most exciting prospects in this draft in the form of Derrick Williams, and the Timberwolves would most like get Chauncey Billups and another player or multiple later draft picks.
The Knicks would probably have to give up a lot, but they would gain a player who can shoot a jumper well. He can shoot the mid-range shots and from the three-point line extremely well.
He can also run well and play above the rim with the rest of the Knicks squad.
The Timberwolves biggest piece here would be getting Chauncey Billups, who would be able to contribute now and also help mentor Ricky Rubio.
Rubio may have a tough time entering and learning the league, but a veteran like Billups would make the transition that much easier.
