The T-Wolves would have been much better off with the Warrior's package. Monta Ellis is as close right now to being a franchise player as Al Jefferson, and Biedrins is much better than anyone else Minnesota got. They would have received 3/5 of the starting lineup of a playoff team plus a lottery pick.

The Dubs without Monta???
Now THAT'S an ugly picture.
If that trade had gone through we would be nowhere near playoff contention right now.

The T-Wolves are better off.. they have a younger, player with better stats (this year) than KG. Monta Ellis is good, but he's too small to defend the other guys at his position. Guess that's where Petrius comes in.
