Odom isn't worth the #2 overall pick. He's not a lead player on any team, but a role player. He's shown that throughout his career - better as a complementary player than one to carry a team. He also had a terrible playoff and, like the rest of the Lakers, looked disinterested.
In addition, where would he play in Minnesota? The T-Wolves already have Beasley and Love at the SF and PF positions, respectively. The offer doesn't make any sense for Minnesota.
