And then they get a starting PG too in Barea? Pretty sick.
Not sure why Minny would make that deal. They could get better with the pieces they have IMO.
Yeah, Dwight + trash > Pau + Bynum. You always give up whatever it takes to get the best player in the deal.
As for Pau going to Minni, I think it's a solid trade. Pau is a much better defender than Pek and Love and gives them that under the rim defence that they lack. But Adelman is an offence guy, and that's where Pau will excel. It would be like Divac under Adelman times a thousand. Pau is a great scorer and a good passer out of the post and would make the Timebervolves' offence pretty deadly. Their frontcourt would be like top 3 in the NBA.
