Just a couple days away from the 2015 Draft, and the first ever #1 pick. Are the Wolves going to take Towns? What will they do with their two second round picks? Trade up? Sell them? Will the Wolves make any trades before the draft? I have been hearing some rumors of Rubio, both our second round picks, and a conditional pick for the #4, and a bad contract in return. To me this is way to much to get the number 4 pick, while Rubio hasnt been a scorer, he is a good game manager, and we wont get that with a rookie.

 

Is anyone going to the draft party?

The T-Wolves already declared they were taking Towns.

All I have seen is the media declaring we are taking KAT, but Towns has denied he knows he is going number 1, and I havent read any reports of the Timberwolves FO admitting to it either. I assume they will, along with the media, and given the fact we are in need of a starting PF, it only makes sense!

Just a couple more hours to go. No one has any thoughts? No excitement? Our first ever 1st pick, along with a couple really decent 2nd round picks.

 

My guess they take Towns, then trade the 2 first round picks and move back into the first round and pick a PG, or a center.

Well they took the best man in the draft in Towns, and in my opinion, they took the best player they could get for their two second picks. Tyus Jones. Lots of young talent on this team, now just to develop them.

​I like the fact that they traded back  into the first to get Jones.  He is a player who is going to want to be here and truly care about making this team better.  

Hopfully KG comes back to mentor Towns.

We didnt need 2 second round picks on our team anyhow. It was better to package them for one player. We dont have enough roster spots as it is. I would expect a move soon to dump a player or two. My guess would be Anthony Bennett, Buddinger, Martin, or Pek.

 

My Guess would be Martin. While our scoring will drop off if we loose Martin, he isnt bringing us to the playoffs, and he would just be taking the ball out of our young guys hands, slowing development. 

And Bennett will more then likely be gone. We wont get much in return for either of them, but we would shed a good chunk of salary between the two.

 

Buddinger will probably stick with us until mid season, and be a midseason trade to help a playoff team, since his contract then would be an expiring, and with some decent shooting help.

 

Pek, with his injuries, and contract, I doubt he will be going anywhere for a couple years. We will just need to nurse him with lower minutes, and hopefully get him through a season without a big injury,

 

The future is bright!

I think they were half right.  I think the chemistry between Okafor and Jones is what the Wolves were looking for.  But we'll see. Everyone except me wanted KAT.  Go Wolves!
