If we waste our pick on him I might kill BC

I agree. I'd rather take Walker or Knight then acquire Flynn.

Meh, depends on who else is involved in the trade.

5th pick in this draft for Flynn is not a bad move. I don't think there's a lot of good players that we can pick at 5.

If it's part of a bigger deal, maybe. But i'm not that excited about a Flynn/Bayless pearing.

I agree, I'd give Flynn more credit than some of the roasts here on the thread already. Last year injured, he has a lot of upside. I think we should wait to see if this is valid and who's involved on the Raps' side before the RF goes hateful.

If we get Flynn, Bayless is gone. They're too similar of players to be on the same team.

I like Flynn though. He tries hard, is athletic and super quick.

Flynn was absolutely brutal last season on both sides of the ball

he had the lowest +/- on the worst defensive team in the league....

there's a reason why the Wolves are handing the job over to Ricky and shipping out Flynn... if we trade the #5 pick for him im gonna cry.

Jonny Flynn: Flynn a fit with the Raptors?
Jonny Flynn - G - MIN - Jun. 2 - 3:06 pm et
Bill Ingram of Hoopsworld is suggesting that Jonny Flynn would be a fit with the Raptors.
Ingram isn't reporting here, just speculating. Flynn is from the area and the Raptors seem to have soured on Jose Calderon. However, Jerryd Bayless is far more talented than Flynn and the Raptors may not want to stunt him. A deal is not imminent. Jun. 2 - 3:06 pm et

interesting that rotoworld would put that much more stock on Bayless over Flynn.. no possible way we can be trading the 5 pick for Flynn

flynn is such an average PG, i'd rather take a risk with the 5th pick
his "upside" is pretty similar to bayless and their games are similar too
besides, he is not the answer to a championship type team

I'm not in any way saying Flynn is bad, but I'd rather use the pick on Biyombo or Val or get lucky and grab knight rather than grab Flynn for it, I'd rather just stick with Bayless, he did a solid job starting.

What if Minny takes Williams with the second, they wouldn't need Webster anymore with Beasley there...trade Bargs/#5/filler for Milicic/Webster/Flynn and have a line of Milicic/Davis/Webster/DD/Flynn?

Yikes, what if BC goes Bargs/#5 - Leonard/filler for Milicic/Beasley***/Flynn? We would have a line of Milicic/Davis/Beasley/DD/Flynn.

flynn has been a disappointment now 2 years into his career, he's likely not even worth a lotto on the market. i'm not worried about bc trading the 5th for flynn cause it wont happen

LJkAze 06-02-2011 07:25 PM

Maybe a deal that gets us 2nd pick ^_^. Flynn+2nd pick+whatever for Jose+5pick+watever

your saying Jose = #2 pick, Flynn = #5 and whatever = whatever?

I think you hae the whatever = whatever part right.

I think thats a tad unfair....he was injured last year and took awhile trying to get back into form. Flynn was drafted high for a reason. I can totally see BC moving the #5 for Flynn

0nekhmer 06-02-2011 07:30 PM

i want Wes Johnson instead!

i was high on flynn myself but injuries or not he has been a major disappointment accomplishing nothing 2 years in and his value has dwindled.

i actually hope we do get flynn but it wont be with a 5th pick unless more is coming toronto's way. There is no way flynn worth a 5th on the market

box92 06-02-2011 07:35 PM

i would risk the 5th pick on the draft rather than getting flynn
