Will Minnesota trade Flynn, Jefferson, Love, or Rubio to move up in draft?
Minnesota GM David Kahn is actively trying to trade up from the fourth pick to the second pick for a chance to take Ohio State’s Evan Turner. Also, don’t be surprised if either Al Jefferson or Kevin Love is traded by draft night.
HoopsVibe’s Quick Call: Yes, change is coming to ‘The Frozen Tundra of Sota’.
Simply put, Jefferson and Love, while both talented, have too similar a style. Each is a natural four-man and can’t effectively play a different position. One factor worth considering: Jefferson may be hard to trade because he has three years and $42 million remaining on his big ticket contract.
So Kahn has too many power forwards. He also has too many point guards, with Jonny Flynn and Spanish prospect Ricky Rubio plying his craft in Europe.
As Tillery mentions, the Timberwolves are considering moving up in the draft and may use the above assets as part of a package to swap spots or rebuild.
