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.
I think that Minny's frontcourt is stellar as it is.... and it's only going to get better.

Pau isn't going to turn Minny into a title contender next year... as good as he is.
