They don't need Kyrie Irving, but mostly every other lottery team does.
Although I suppose there is "some question" around the Twolves as well as all the rumours have Rubio coming over from Spain ; however I would not be surprised the see the Twolves take Irving and trade away the rights to Rubio.
If it involves paying out cash to buy out the spanish league team (Rubio's responsibility) the Twolves are notoriously cheap. Flipping him to San Antonio would be exactly the type of San Antionio move.
Bottom line in my mind is everyone but the Wizards ahead of us take Irving the concensus number 1.
