Default Who do you hope to end up with in the draft?

Minnesota will likely be picking in the top 5, so what prospect do you like best (in that range)?

Whoever is the best player flat out in the draft, which is probably Beasley is who they should pick if they get the chance. Not only do they need a player at PF, but they need somone who they could possibly trade in their 3rd year if the player does not mesh well with the team.

It all depends whether or not the player we draft would rather play in a better place than Minnesota with more media attention and what not. I want a player that is good that wants to stay with the T-wolves from the draft, but I could never take it for granted that they do.

Most people think we should get Rose because of the PG situation and think Foye can't play the spot. It's really a toss up. Maybe Rose could be better than Beasley? It's too hard to say with the basketball talent becoming more and more athletically advanced.

Who thought Craig Smith would be the player he is today? Who thought Corey Brewer would be such a bust this year? (not saying he can't become a better player) We have good draft picks, we have a good chance of picking up more than one player that turns out to be a better thing.

Well the Wolves are as attracted to guards as the Detroit Lions are attracted to recievers in the draft. I think they will draft Rose, and if he is not their they will draft Bayless.

Rose or (Brook) Lopez would probably be ideal for the T'Wolves.

Unless they can get Beasley or Rose at the 1 or 2, they should really consider trading down to get some veteran leadership on that team. As for Bayless, they already have a undersized combo-guard not working out for them, plus Telfair has shown promise and a positive attitude towards development.

They're at a point where they've drafted and acquired young talent at every position (except possibly at center because a Gomes/Smith/Jefferson frontcourt is too small) and are in the process of building cap space for a serious free agent move.

I'd also try to package Jaric and/or Madesen with someone like McCants or Gomes to build towards being able to offer a max-level deal in the summer of 2009 or 2010

need a pg. or shooting man... someone who can hit 3's, take the pressure off AL so when hes double teamed he can find a guy who acturally knows how to play the game.... like foye was doing towards the end.

Default Re: Who do you hope to end up with in the draft?

deandre jordan or javale mcgee... it maybe a huge gamble but consider that they already have randy foye sebastian telfair rashad mccants and corey brewer.. i think getting a small player would just give twolves defending teams who have legit centers... not unless telfair or jaric ( no one wants him) will be traded for a pick .... who knows well i just hope mchale will be smart this time..... oh god please here me now ..

Roy Hibbert? He had a hard time holding it down in college. DO you seriously think he's a better prospect than Brook Lopez? Hibbert is the least consistant player I've ever seen and will get eaten alive in the NBA.

I had Brook Lopez on my list, my word. As for eaten alive, it can go both ways. Brook will take his lumps, just like Roy will. Both of these guys are slow. Brook has little foot speed and the same goes for Roy.

When I did my list, I was not trying say draft Roy. I was picking people that I think that we should go after.

If you guys could get chris kaman for free. Would you do it right now. Cause thats what brook lopez will most likely turn into. Which is a good solid double double center for many years. Mayo will probably be a ben godon or monta ellis type. So its really just prefrence. But every team in th playoffs still. Has a solid big man to play around. So I think lopez should be the pick.
