Default If Wolves draft Derrick Williams...

What happens to Mike Beasley? Between Beasley and Love, clearly Love would stay. That leaves Beasley the odd man out? He will be up for extension, would the Wolves want to dish out $$ to him when they have Williams?

Depends how much they have assessed and evaluated both talents. If they like Beasley more then they can use Derrick Williams as trade bait. Or keep Derrick Williams and use Beasley as trade bait. Once they pick Derrick Williams, there will be options on the table they can explore. With Beasley, its not like he carried that team to victory. But they could get more value for him than they gave up to get him.

If they drafted Williams, I would probably look to move Beasley. Beasley has proven he can put up stats on a garbage team but I am really not sold on him. There is some value around for Beasley. Teams wouldnt give up a lot, but certainly more than they gave up.

Nuggets say hell no to Beasley, they're trying to shed the imagine of being idiot thugs, they don't need a prototypical one for their team.

Williams, however, they say yes plz.

No way the Wolves would deal Williams for Felton. Perhaps Beasley for Felton though.

They might if the Nuggets agree to take Flynn off their hands. Maybe throw in someone else to balance it out.

They probably let him walk as a RFA if he gets an offer. Otherwise they try to trade him for any value they can get over what they gave up. Williams is too good and a better defender than Beasley, you have to clear the space for him. Beasley hasn't done well as a 6th man type, which is too bad. He could be their Odom.

I really like their lineup if they get Williams and maybe Marshon Brooks,Klay Thompson or Reggie Jackson at 20.

Darko/Pekovic
Love/Randolph
Williams/Webster/Beasley
Johnson/Brooks/Ellington
Ridnour/Rubio/Flynn

Try to use Flynn,Belasley,Pekovic and maybe Johnson and Webster to make a trade for a stud SG or strong veteran C.

Don't the Wolves already have like 12 pg's on their roster? I doubt they move Beas for Felton, Afflalo maybe. Ridnour played great, they still got Flynn, they are holding out hope for Rubio. I can't remember the rest

The Wolves draft Williams and play him, Love and Beas as the platoon at the 3/4 spot. Drafting Williams makes Tolliver expendable (he's a FA).

Minny, please don't mess this up. They got good young talent, watch out for Wesley Johnson if they move him to the 3, a la Kevin Durant after PJ Carlisemo got canned for Scotty Brooks. Do not trade any young pieces!!

Im so afraid a borderline contender is gonna come in and rope Minny. Like San Antonio or the Lakers come in and snatch Johnson for a pg or some kind of heist.

Why would that be more of an incentive for the Wolves? Flynn is still young, on a rookie contract, and he is a team option for the year after next.

Is wrong with this forum?

so Minny say no when its Derrick Williams, but agree to trade Beasley for Felton just like that?

Beasley is going to be a better SF than Derrick Williams as well as being the better player and also having a better career.

You can quote me on that.

You haven't even seen Derrick Williams play a game in the league yet, how can you make a quote like this? Not saying he's going to be better then B-easy but give Derrick Williams a chance. He's the obvious pick for #2 whether they use him or beasley as trade bait. Just see a major jam at the forward spot with Beasley, Love, Randolph, Wes Johnson and then D. Williams
