The T-wolves need to take three point guards with their three first round picks. It would make them so awesome.

Why even print this story, you know and I know that they are NOT going to do anything worth while to even mention here. Even if they did, it still would suck anyway. One thing i would consider is trading the 4th, big al and others for Gilbert and 1 pick any day. If you have that options do it today. But wait, these the Stupid puppies that we are talking about.

You know that sure is a short list of players that were drafted 4th that have become stars. You'd think everyone would.

Anyway, just pick Johnson. He's the real deal, and what we need. Why all this trading draft picks crap? Just take your player. We've seen all too often the talent we trade away.

maybe Clueless Taylor will consult with McFale and make some trades that can help this team out...never done that before..

It mentioned in the article that they wouldn't take Brand in a trade. I would do that and take the 2nd overal pick. Get rid of Jefferson.

no chance washington trades the one pick... unless they get the two.
maybe we could do something with philly and take on brand and get rid of al...

All I know is that whatever decision the Wolves make, it will be the wrong one.

Picking Cousins at #4 would be a huge mistake! He is not athletic enough as pointed out in the article. Finding a big man to play center could be accomplished easily through other means.

Hire a witch or Warlock to remove this lottery curse or spell.

I still have draft nightmares (and there's been many) because of things like this: "And with the 26th pick the Minnesota Timberwolves select... Ndubi Edi." Sadly, worse things than that have happened.

Go Johnson at 4 and then go Soloman Alabi, FSU center at 16. 7'1" and athletic to go with a athletic wingman in Johnson.

Probably won't work out that way though unfortunately.

This is almost laughable how a team can year after pick the wrong guy or if they do pick the right guy they trade him for the wrong one. Taylor has horrible instincts with making the right hire, how the hell did he get to be worth a billion dollars? Luck?

History is a wonderful teacher. Too bad the Timber puppies consistently repeat their draft choice history. Bad players, bad choices and terrible trades.
Ain't history wonderful.

All of you have it wrong---watching the T-Wolves is all about watching a train wreck in tennis shoes. Sit back and enjoy the draft as they pick foir position and pass on talent. Or, if they select well, wait for that trade and watch their original pick make ROY honors. Really, if soeone had actiually tried to screw up as much as this lousiest of franchises, they could not have done better (that is, worse...). Let the games begin!

We need a super star shooting guard, not another post up player. In order to be a championship team we need to have a closer, a great player to close out the game like Kobe, MJ, Pierce, etc.

I don't understand why people want brand over jefferson. Brand is washed up, we would have to pay him $51 million over the next three seasons, he averaged 13 pts last season, and he's 31. Jefferson is 25, averaged 17 points playing as a center (he would thrive as a power forward), we have to pay him $54 million over the next 4 years, and as soon as he learns how to shoot a mid range jumper (which doesn't take long to develop) he will easily average over 20 points a game.

We need to take Cousins at 4, jordan crawford at 16, and sign rudy gay. We will fulfill all of our needs and if flynn or sessions don't develop into the point guard of our franchise we will have rubio coming the following season.

One more thing. If they draft Gordon Hayward or Cole Aldrich I will not watch them this year.

I hope Kan is not diluting himself into believing he is going to secure a "big name" free agent. Why not take Elton Brand and his contract if it gets you Evan Turner. Come on David Kahn, make the deal.

Take Cousins if he is there at 4.
