Do the Timberwolves Prefer OJ Mayo or Kevin Love?

The Timberwolves will have a tough choice tonight, when they are scheduled to make the third pick in the first round of the NBA draft.

I believe that if assistant general manager Fred Hoiberg is a good salesman and if the Wolves don’t make a trade, they will take Southern California guard O.J. Mayo.

Hoiberg played for Southern California coach Tim Floyd at Iowa State, and they are close. Floyd also coached in the NBA with the Chicago Bulls from 1999-2002, so he has a good idea how Mayo will fit in as a pro player. I believe Floyd has sold Hoiberg on Mayo.
