Of course the NBA draft is rigged, the outcomes are improbable and look at the contrived officiating...no question, even wrestling officials aren't that phony!

No, Khan was NOT joking , he IS the joke.....and the joke, once again, is on the Timberwolves....and finally EVERYONE knows the draft is rigged, it' just that no one has the seeds to come out in the open about it. Fold the Wolves up, does anyone in this town actually care about the NBA anyway?

R wolves really going to BUILD around love and beasley ?
then trade #2 to cleveland for #4 and right to switch first round picks in the future.
draft a big at #4.
being said utah looking at taking a pg at #3.
kanter should then be there at 4.

same deal with toronto at 5, but kanter will be gone ?

rubio to clippers to get 2012 draft rights back.

maybe add something like first round picks switch option (for wolves)if higher pick is not in top three.

draft kanter at #2.
see if flynn can do something next season.
maybe suck and get best pg in 2012 draft.

draft brandon knight #2, trade flynn to jazz for derrick favors. get a stud center in the 2012 draft.

keep rubio.
draft kanter at #2.
see if clippers would take flynn, the #20 and the future utah pick so wolves could get their 2012 first back.

the three rookies from last year and the two from this year will make for an honest difficult challenge for any starting 5 and the older jazz men to start the game look out utah is the future

I have said it before and I will say it again, you will NEVER see Rubio in TPups jersey.Kahn is yet another clown in the long line of clowns Taylor has hired as folks to run this misfit organization. It is clearly a tax write off for him, he could care less if this team EVER achieves a .500 record, he uses it as writeoff and nothing more.
