    Timberwolves trade 18th pick to Rockets

    Rockets now own 14th, 16th and 18th picks. Apparently going to try to make a move for Dwight Howard.

    I've heard the Rockets are also very high on Royce.

    Great trade for the Rockets. Trade a 2nd round pick for the 18th overall pick.

    I was hoping Royce would have landed in Minnesota or Chicago.

    Budinger will not be a permanent member of the Wolves. They will probably use him the replace Wesley Johnson and then cut him loose next year. Can you say T-I-M-B-E-R.

    Re: Timberwolves trade 18th pick to Rockets

    Some reasons the Wolves make this trade.

    1 there wasn't a SG that they liked that would fall to them
    2 Budinger has played for Adleman so he knows the system
    3 Budingers contract is less than what the 18th pick would make freeing up some more money
    4 They have offered Brandon Roy a 2 year contract and are looking hard at a russian guard

    Good Luck Houston keeping Dwight there long term. The Rockets are a joke.

    Buddinger actually fits what they need very well. They desperately need a shooter and he is at least 10% better than the other players the Wolves have at that spot, especially from the all important corner spot.

    They need more than a 10 point scorer to support Love from that spot. He will have to be taking more shots then.
