    I would like to see Wes play for the t'wolves but I don't know
    with all the first round picks that they got I don't think it's a lock for him to
    go there.

    I hope the T-Wolves don't end up with him as a fourth pick. I just don't think he is one of the top ten players it the country, and I don't think he can hold up for 82 games.

    You say that as if it's a bad thing. Yes, the Nets had one of the worst seasons in NBA history this year, but first the billionaire Russian owner just purchased the team, second, they have a LOT of money to spend (enough to possibly lure LeBron away from Cleveland and add another star to the roster), and third, in two years they're getting out of New Jersey and moving to Brooklyn, a place that actually wants the team there. 5 years from now the Nets (or whatever they'll be called after they move to Brooklyn) will be in a MUCH better position than the team that plays in a dump of an arena one borough over (and before you start claiming that MSG isn't a dump - it's historic, yes, MSG IS a dump, and the term "historic" is just a term that real estate agents use to convince customers to spend way more money than they should on dumps).

    What's going to be interesting for the Wolves is they want the 2nd pick to take Turner. Philly won't trade that pick inless you ake Elton Brand and his huge contract along with it. For the Wolves to do that the have to trade Jefferson and or Love

    The Timberwolves can create as much as $25 million in space under the projected salary cap of $56.1 million, though it would mean declining the options on Ryan Gomes' ($4.2 million) and Nathan Jawai's ($1 million) contracts. Even by keeping that pair, the Wolves should have $20 million to offer to free agents if they choose.

    In addition to the fourth pick in the draft, Minnesota owns Nos. 16, 23, 45 and 56. And if they pursue a trade, they figure to find plenty of interest in players such as Jefferson, Love, Gomes or Ramon Sessions. Or even European guard Ricky Rubio and center Nikola Pekovic, whose rights the Wolves hold.
    "This is going to be a very tumultuous summer," Kahn said, "and not just for us. It will be a very volatile trading period heading into the draft."
