JUST HOW DOMINANT COULD MINNESOTAS FRONT COURT BE?
lets say the draft goes as nbadraft.net predicts and the wolves get hill and thabeet and pick the guards with the other 2 first round picks. with the talent thats already in the wolves frontcourt could we be looking at something very special
They won't take Hill. Thabeet, Curry and Evans are thier favorites.
and besides curry wont be there
they could take harden and derozan harden becomes point guard which i dont doubt he could play derozan becomes a nightmare offensively because of size and his athletic ability. folks this could be scary
not dominant. thabeet is raw and unproven. love is not a good defender. neither is jefferson. if thabeet gets in foul trouble in a game its over defensively for the t'wolves.
Why would they draft Harden and make him a point guard, when he is clearly a shooting guard? Remember what yall just had with Randy Foye? And it would be at least 2 or 3 years before Derozan is even a factor offensively with his jumper and ball handling skills. They should trade one of the picks for a center in the NBA already, and then take a pg (Brandon Jennings or Jonny Flynn) if they were smart
This site's mock explains that they will take either curry or evans and either hill or thabeet, not 2 gaurds and not 2 bigs. Also, there is not great evidence that HIll or Thabeet will be good pros. Thabeet seems like he will at least be able to defend, but without a fast tempo, it's unclear if Hill can do anything more than be an energy guy with lots of athleticism.
