Default Re: Washington-Minnesota made trade

So Minnesota is now likely drafting a PG and an SG right? Lots of rumours about them liking Tyreke Evans but if James Harden falls to them, would they take Evans over him? Not sure if you'd want two players who don't have jumpshots like Rubio and Evans if both are there.

So what are the best combos for them? Curry + Evans/Harden?

But seriously, what is Washington doing?

I'm pissed the Cavs didn't offer them junk for that pick.

Book it.
Why would we get another power forward?

Miller + Foye isnt junk. And if we have anything equivalent to that then they're probably in the Not Available isle. But i dont think the Cavs have No.5 pick value anyway.

A SG is guaranteed at 6, IMO. Hill is lock at #5 as well.

Too many points in this draft to take a PG that high when they could get Lawson at #18. I dunno, maybe if they really like a Flynn (which I don't doubt), I can see them taking him at #6. But I think they need a big SG...tired of being small in the backcourt.

Hill at #5 would just be stupid.

It has to be some combination of Harden/Evans/MAYBE Derozan + a PG.

Their nothing but expirers, son. Book it. Washington just basically gave away the #5 pick in a draft they better PRAY is extremely weak.

Foye averaged like 16ppg and Miller is a lights out shooter which is what the Wizs need.

So who are some of the names the Wolves might select with their first rounders?
