Derrick Williams and Picks to get in Top 5?

Recommended Posts

pikestabber

The latest rumor, and there have been plenty, is this:

"The Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to move up to a Top-5 draft pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, in order to select Victor Oladipo or Ben McLemore. They are offering teams Derrick Williams, their 9th overall pick, and their 26th overall pick."

With a fairly weak draft class, I like moving up from 9, but are we giving up too much? If it was DWill and a 26th, I'd be all about it (but then again no one would be takers), but both of our higher picks and DWill seems steep. I guess I always held out hope that Williams would turn a corner, but I don't really see it happening. Thoughts?

No way. DWill would be a top 3 pick this year. Its a weak draft, just take best available and worry about signing your own guys.

Yep. Williams showed some growth last year...it's not worth bailing on him plus a pick(s) in this weak, weak draft class.

If he were in this draft he would likely have been the #1 pick. If you believe the experts, this draft is loaded with guys that have a ceiling of role players. The one guy that intrigues me is McLemore, but I wouldn't trade DWill yet.

It would be in the t-wolves best interests to get veteran role players instead of rookie role players.

yeah no way would they make that trade...well I hope not at least!! Dwill is still improving his game and we are actually seeing him get better so I can't see them giving up on him now and our #9 to get an unprover projected role player

I don't think Adleman likes DWill. I don't know why, but they were talking about trading him last year.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Nice outing and very nice pics.

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources urges property owners in the southern part of the state to wait one month before removing evergreens that are showing stress after a harsh winter and late spring. Some will recover.  DNR forest health specialists have received reports of spruce, white cedar, and white pine that appeared to die suddenly in Fillmore, Houston, Freeborn, Goodhue, and Hennepin counties. In some cases, up to 90 percent of needles in the upper canopy of spruce trees have fallen off, while the bottom branches remained green. “In most instances, this extensive needle loss is the result of severe winter drying,” said Brian Schwingle, DNR forest health specialist. “Warm, windy days with low humidity in late April caused evergreen needles to lose moisture, and the frozen soil in the root zone prevented water from moving back into the needles to replace that moisture.” Recently planted evergreens and smaller trees were hardest hit. Schwingle recommends that people keep an eye on their evergreens and wait to see if they regain their canopy with new growth. Trees with 50 percent or more of their needle canopy remaining could recover. For more information, see hort.uwex.edu/articles/winter-burn. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I don't follow things closely, so I just found out about this last night. The Lake Vermilion Fire Brigade is hosting a pig roast fundraiser on Saturday from 4-7pm to support its operations. There are live and silent auctions along with stuff for the kids. Check it out:   http://www.lakevermilionfirebrigade.com/a-squealin-good-time-for-all-ages/ We are going to go.

      I’ve heard phenomenal things about the rivers, willhave to pull the kayak out and get on it. Thank you everyone for the feedback. I’ve checked out Clearwater, I really enjoyed it but lately it seems to tough for my 14ft boat to be stable out there on a windy day.  I’ve had success in Avon lately.
