    The part of that rumor pertaining to "a package that includes the 10th pick" is a bit odd. I'm guessing that the 10th pick is the lesser piece of whatever deal the TWolves are trying to put together. Are they trying to get Roy Hibbert to pair with K.Love assuming they eventually move Al Jefferson? Other than Granger, who ain't going no where, hard to figure who else any team would have interest in on Indy's roster. Minnesota seems rudderless, both on and off the court.

    Another draft trade from ESPN:

    The Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves are close to swapping first-round draft picks, a source with direct knowledge of the situation tells's Andy Katz.

    The Grizzlies would send their 25th and 28th overall picks to Minnesota for the Timberwolves' 16th pick

    Looks like the Wolves are gathering up low picks in the first round to throw at New Jersey so they can secure Wesley Johnson who the Nets are "supposedly" high on and will take with the 3rd pick.

    Honestly, I can't believe Kahn is buying this bologna. Let them take Johnson, big deal. They now have the pick of the litter between Cousins and Favors, two prospects with a MUCH higher ceiling. Favors is only 19 and Johnson is almost 24. Oh well, there is a reason why the Wolves are bad year in and year out. They simply fold when other teams try to bully them. Anyone else remember getting Roy for Foye and only having to throw in cash?

    I don't think we are cutting ties with Oden any time soon unless a superstar player is coming back in return. Rudy is the major trade bait here along wit hthe expiring contracts of Miller/Przybilla.

    John Hollingers Draft Rater & Big Board:

    Here’s the updated top 12:

    Player School Rating
    1 DeMarcus Cousins Kentucky 16.14
    2 Evan Turner Ohio State 14.79
    3 John Wall Kentucky 14.68
    4 Greg Monroe Georgetown 14.39
    5 Derrick Favors Georgia Tech 13.78
    6 Al-Farouq Aminu Wake Forest 13.62
    7 Xavier Henry Kansas 13.52
    8 Luke Babbitt Nevada 13.35
    9 Greivis Vasquez Maryland 12.97
    10 Paul George Fresno State 12.52
    11 Sylven Landesberg Virginia 12.52
    12 Omar Samhan Saint Mary's 12.47

     Draft Board:
    1. John Wall, Kentucky
    2. Evan Turner, Ohio St.
    3. DeMarcus Cousins, Kentucky
    4. Greg Monroe, Georgetown
    5. Derrick Favors, Georgia Tech

    6. Al-Farouq Aminu, Wake Forest
    7. Xavier Henry, Kansas
    8. Luke Babbitt, Nevada
    9. Paul George, Fresno State
    10. Sylven Landesberg, Virginia

    11. Wesley Johnnson, Syracuse
    12. Damion James, Texas
    13. Daniel Orton, Kentucky
    14. James Anderson, Oklahoma State
    15. Gordon Hayward, Butler

    16. Larry Sanders, VCU
    17. Cole Aldrich, Kansas
    18. Ed Davis, North Carolina
    19. Avery Bradley, Texas
    20. Eric Bledsoe, Kentucky

    21. Greivis Vasquez, Maryland
    22. Manny Harris, Michigan
    23. Darington Hobson, New Mexico
    24. Jon Scheyer, Duke
    25. Jordan Crawford, Xavier

    26. Quincy Pondexter, Washington
    27. Omar Samhan, St. Mary’s
    28. Armon Johnson, Nevada
    29. Dominique Jones, South Florida
    30. Trevor Booker, Clemson


    Interesting to see how low he has Wes Johnson, which agrees with my sentiment that he'll be a slight bust. He doesn't even have Whiteside in his top 30, which is who I'd like us to draft either. Crazy to see Sylven Landsberg so highly ranked to, when he isn't even listen in most mock drafts.

    I'm usually a huge fan of Hollinger's work, but the draft rater seems like a reach. Greivis Vasquez? Sylven Landesberg? Stranger things have happened, but somehow I doubt those are going to be the 9th and 11th best players in this draft. Man, I hope that isn't the case.

    From RealGM:
    The Heat are willing to sell the 18th pick in Thursday's NBA Draft, according to league sources.

    "They want to sell it to clear cap space," one Western Conference executive told Yahoo!

    Read more: HERE
    I wonder if the Blazers would be interested in buying #18 for $3million. I mean we paid around $2 million to move up to #34. Also, I have heard the Heat are willing to dump Beasley to get under the cap enough to sign 3 MAX Free Agents. I'd be down with acquiring MB, depending on the price.

    LINK- Celtics Shopping #19

    According to a source close to Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge, the Celtics have put their first-round pick in the NBA draft -- No. 19 overall -- on the market Wednesday, looking for a suitor.

    Ainge hasn't been enamored with anyone at the spot, according to the source, and is willing to get a return of a future pick.

    The Celtics own the 19th and 52nd picks in Thursday's draft.

    Looks like quite a few teams are offering their pick up for grabs. If we truly are interested in moving up tomorrow, we can't say they're weren't opportunities.

    From the Twitterz-

    Jonathan Givony DraftExpress Trade rumor making the rounds: Minnesota trades Al Jefferson and the #16th pick for Zach Randolph and #12th. Money saver for Minnesota.
    Huge money saver for Minny. Zbo is an expiring while Al Jeff has 3 years left, plus they move up 4 spots in the draft. A no brainer for me if I'm Minny, because it doesn't seem like Jefferson has any trade value right now

    A couple rumors via RealGM-

    The Clippers may trade their No. 8 pick to Chicago for Luol Deng and the Bulls' 17th pick, according to a source that spoke with Chris Broussard.

    Broussard hasn't received confirmation from a team official.

    RealGM Note: This trade could not be completed on draft night due to the Clippers needing to use their cap space to absorb Deng's contract.

    Read more: HERE
    This just is a horrible, nightmare scenario for the Blazers if it happens. It not only gives the talented Bulls the #8 pick but gives them enough cap space to get TWO MAX guys. Also, this gives the Clipps a great starting 5(BD,Gordon,Deng,Blake G,Kaman), making the West that much harder. No thank you.

    The Thunder are holding serious talks with the Pacers to trade Eric Maynor, in addition to the 18th and 21st picks for the 10th overall selection.

    Read more: HERE
    I hope it goes down, because the Thunder would be grossly overpaying for the #10 pick.

    It sucks im going to be at work for the draft, its shaping to be another wild one! 

    @Clipper trade: if that goes down I think both parties win, depending on who the Clips can sign. 

    @DHawes22: HUGE steal if a team can get you in the late 2nd round! :P

    Look I am sorry but Ruy is not a good fit at all he did crap in the playoffs, He wants bigger roll well Ruy needs to bust his ass in practice and show that he can be counted on. If I were the G.M I would find a way to trade Rudy and fast, He is a destruction to the teem.
