First 2 picks in Draft confirmed.

With sources reporting to ESPN that the Cavs have decided that Kyrie will be the 1st pick in the draft, a couple days ago sources told ESPN that if Kyrie gets picked by the Cavs it is 100% that Minnesota will select Derrick Williams. Sources also said that minnesota will not be trading Beasley or Randolph. This loads their 3 and 4 positions. My guess is they are still secretly shopping the no. 2 pick but it seems the no.2 picks are confirmed at this point.

Not in stone as far as the second pick because the Wolves are still fielding calls for trades for the number 2 pick

If the right trade comes

If the right trade comes along T wolves will be trading that pick. Doubt if the right trade comes along for the number one pick since the cavs arent looking to trade the top pick. Every year some pick is set in stone in the draft that ends up getting change. Thats how the drafts seem to work every years so i'd take this news with a grain of salt

i will since every year

i will since every year something in stone ends up being change. Just like the teams that "promise" a player that they will pick them then something better comes along or when a team says there is no way they are gonna trade a player or the rumors aren't true and then the next day the player is traded. Just regular common sense says never believe 100percent what these team say because there track record shows that they either lie or change their mind

Willaims

Should be the #2 pick, regardless if Minn trades it or keeps it.

I doubt any team trading up to 2, will draft Knight or Kanter or anyone else.

Even reading the link leaves

Even reading the link leaves open the possiblity of trading the pick. Not planning to do something is alot different from saying it will not happen which is why i said if a trade comes along that they like they will make it. So far they are making it seem that no trade has come along that they have liked( and if it has they are keeping it close to vest)

Yep. And Just read ESpn

Yep. And Just read ESpn twitter that they are still listening to offers for the number 2 pick. They really wanna get rid of it but if the right deal doesn't come along they will keep it then look to trade Williams later

They just offered the Lakers

They just offered the Lakers the 2 for Bynum, the 2nd or 3rd best center in the NBA, lol.

Minny needs a reality check.
