Here's a suggestion: Trade Love or Jefferson to Golden State for 24 year old scoring machine Monte Ellis...draft Evan Turner for SF... get Milicec back or sign another center. Then you have Gomes and Brewer off the bench, Love or Jefferson and Milicec to rebound, Ellis and Turner to take their 15-20 shots. Then Rubio signs in 2011 and all of a sudden you have depth. And, you don't have to overpay a stiff like McCrady or Stojavic. Sounds smart to me.
Ellis is a product of Nelsons run and gun dont play defense get the ball to the shooting guard offense (i know the wolves defense sucks as well so dont say it) i would not give up jefferson for ellis and curry is now a product of that system as well. And gomes probably will be and should be traded to a playoff contender on draft night for a first round pick

A lot depends on the draft, however this is good scenario.
#2 Pick: Kevin Love for Monta Ellis. Sign Tyson Chandler at reduced market value. Draft Evan Turner. Then draft C Hassan Whiteside at #20. PF Jarvis Vanardo at #32
C Chandler/ Whiteside
PF Jefferson/ Vanardo
SF Turner/Brewer
SG Ellis/Ellington
PG Flynn/Sessions
#3 Pick: Draft Cousins, trade Jefferson for Ellis. Sign T-Mac.
C Cousins/Whiteside
PF Love/ Vanardo
SF McGrady/Brewer
SG Ellis/Ellington
PG Flynn/Sessions
If you are gonna start saying stupid things then dont post. Ellis is the wrong player for the triangle because he just likes to shoot, is a drama queen and T-mac has already stated he wants to win a championship now so why would he sign with the wolves, Chandler has said he wont opt out and why would he his stats are horrible for the 12 million he is gonna make next year by keeping his current contract. Everybody who is in love with ellis needs to wake up he is a true dbag who only thinks of himself on the court and think he is a top ten player in this league and he is not.

Turner or Wall...Joe Johnson or Rudy Gay, Darko,Big Al, that would be the core of your team. Trade K-Love and R.Rubio for Lee and Chandler of New York, we all know how much they value Rubio and how much he values the big stage.Draft a couple of big men with remaining picks and have Brewer and Flynn off the bench.There are several interesting players that will be there later in the draft Butler-WV, Orton-KY, Udoh-Baylor and Heyward-Butler to name a few.Kahn you can do this! If not ....interesting thought, LET THE PEOPLE BE IN CHARGE.

Doesn't matter who the Wolves draft, his career will be as good as over.

Kahn will not trade the rights to rubio unless its in a sign and trade for a max-contract worthy player. Love is the odd man out now unfortunately although i am getting sick of his bitching and moaning the media tricks him into doing, If we do a trade with the Warriors it better be for a top five pick and not monte ellis

I don't see Love as bitching. I see him as a young kid who is wondering what in the world is going on. I know I'm biased, but Rambis just isn't as clever as he thinks he is. He's trying so hard to be Phil Jackson 2.0, and that approach is pretty likely to backfire. Jackson can play head games with his players because they are stars or vets who are too full of themselves. The Twolves are a confused, fragile, defeated franchise full of players who need their coach behind them, not having their coach playing less-than-successful head games with them.

still love is gonna be the odd man out on this one with kahn and rambis who are both saying they want Darko back and he and Jefferson keep saying how much they like playing together and work better together
