Wolves want Andrei Kirilenko
Minneapolis Star Tribune:
The Timberwolves are targeting former NBA All-Star Andrei Kirilenko and are willing to pay the free-agent small forward as much as $9 million per season for at least the next two seasons, league sources said Tuesday.
To clear enough cap space to do so, they reportedly plan to trade small forward Wes Johnson, their No. 4 overall pick in the 2010 draft.
Yahoo!Sports reported Tuesday that the Wolves were nearing agreement on a three-way trade with Phoenix and New Orleans that would send Johnson and a future No. 1 pick to the Suns in a deal that would shed Johnson's $4.3 million salary and clear space on the Wolves' salary-cap books.
