Timberwolves Interested In Acquiring 5th Overall Pick
More Timberwolves News

Jun 21, 2009 4:10 PM EST
Rumors are starting to circulate that the Timberwolves might be interested in the fifth overall pick, which is owned by the Wizards.

Minnesota already has the sixth, 18th and 28th picks, but they are reportedly interested in moving up to land either Hasheem Thabeet or Ricky Rubio.

The Timberwolves are said to want the 2nd pick, which belongs to the Grizzlies, and might need a couple of top-ten picks in order to land it.

Washington has been talking to a number of teams about the fifth pick, and Minnesota could offer the expiring deals of Mike Miller, Brian Cardinal and Mark Madsen (in combination with a late-round pick) for the selection
What would they have to give up for #5. Because i think it's a given Memphis would take picks #5/6 for the #2 pick.

wow

seriously, why would you trade up to the 5th spot when you own the 6th. The 2nd pick I could see happening, but the 6th? Come on.

Anyways, to get to the 2nd pick, I think they give up Mike Miller, or if they really want the pick, Kevin Love.

Ah, I see.

Ya, thats pretty smart. But that is a lot to give up for a weak draft. I'm thinking Minny would want some player in return also.

They basically would be giving up their #6/Miller or Love or ? for the #2.

They then get Rubio or Thabeet and still have #18/#28. Not bad! And i think we might be able to buy #18 from them.

If I'm Memphis, I'd do it. Especially if I get a Miller/Love in return. But still, doesn't really make sense for Minny unless they get a player in return. I'm thinking...Mike Conley?

Actually, Washington would be the ones getting Miller or Love in the trade for #5. Then Memphis gets #5/6 from minny for #2. Anyway it sounds like bullshit to me. It seems to me #6/Miller should land them #2 without involving Washington and their #5 pick!
