this is stupid IMO for

this is stupid IMO for Minnesota, you what quality players, not quantity, and after 16 I see the quality dropping off so why would they do this trade. There has to be more to this than reported.

I think Memphis would try to

I think Memphis would try to get a PG like Bledsoe or Bradley there. I don't know why Minnesota would do this though, unless there planning on trading a few picks.

no way

no way Minny takes 3 late 1st rounders, this would have to be done to make other trades - my guess is that future 1st rounders will be involved with some teams like the nuggets and Mavs wanting to get into the 1st round.

They want Paul George more

They want Paul George more than anybody. They brought in George for a workout in front of owner Michael Hisely who has the final say in who they draft

it'll probably be George #12 and Bledsoe #16

I was just reading that they

I was just reading that they did a workout for George today specifically designed to put him in different senerios and he apparantly killed it. He's a lock at #12

ok deal for both teams this is a pipe dream for mn

moved to here from wrong spot..

So if the t-wolves do the trade from memphis, that will give them the 4, 23, 25, 28th picks i believe. I can't see them keeping all of those picks. What could the t-wolves really do with all of their picks. here are some way off ideas that would be fun to see for some i guess.

k-love + 23rd for like the GSW 6th pick.

Big Al, brewer/gomes, 28th SandT with raptors for bosh. good luck with that....

Rubio and 4th or 6th + 25th to move up to 1st, 2nd or 3rd pick or do nothing and have the 4th, 6th and 25th pick.

sign Joe Johnson

pipe dreams i know, because who would ever want to come to minny, get rid of the bigs and sign some players. they have the cap space and boy that would draw some interest back here in minny. Maybe they could turn a profit then.

Give me a break i know its my first post.

if the Griz do that then they can let Randolph go next year and use his contract to give Mayo and Gasol extensions

Smith is a power forward and

Smith is a power forward and only a power forward, he would be the power forward of the future. Randolph can be traded for a draft pick. he can be used to get talent because he of his expiring contract or he can be kept and used for an extension

well he can play 3 till we

well he can play 3 till we trade Z-BO at the deadline. teams will be crawling over each other to get a huge expiring contract especially since he's an all-star and could help a title contender

if they trade for Josh Smith

if they trade for Josh Smith by Gay then why not trade Randolph for AK 47, both are expiring and are about same amount

Conley - Bledsoe
Mayo - Young / Brewer
AK 47 - George / Brewer
Smith - Arthur / Carrol
Gasol - Thabeet

Williams - Price
Mathews - Gaines
Babbit - Miles
Randolp - Milsap
Okur - Fesenko / Milsap

I agree with MemphisGriz that

I agree with MemphisGriz that we will probably get George. I feel it will either be George and best power forward available or a PG

Josh Smith is not a pure

Josh Smith is not a pure power forward. He is best suited actually playing small forward plus in the Western Conference he will have to play small forward more to guard all the Big wings like Melo and Durant. He is much better suited to Guard them then Tim Duncan, Pau Gasol, and Stoudemire.

And why does everybody always automatically start the rookies when they make a trade theres no way that Bledsoe takes conleys starting job right away or Paul George would start over Zach Randolph. Hello Z-Bo just made the All Star Team and put up 20 n 10 which he does all the time so why would Memphis want to trade for an undersized power forward to start over him. Neway its actually a good trade for both teams tho because it allows Smith to play his more natural Small Forward position so he can wreak havoc as a weak side shot blocker, and I was gonna say it allows Horford to play his more natural Power Forward postion but if the Hawks had Gay without Joe Johnson their lineup would almost definitely look like this:

Bibby (Teague off the bench where he belongs)
Crawford (would thrive as the starting 2guard to the tune of 20 a night)
Gay (would become their new franchise talent for better or worse)
Williams (with J-Smoove and JJ gone their is no way that Atlanta don't give Marvin the nod to start)
Horford

I cant even call this lineup undersized necessarily because Gay n Williams both have the wingspans of a center at around 7'4 and Horford have proven to be a great pivot for this team in the lane. This would be a very exciting team to watch with the only thing missing is a pure point guard to dish the ball n toss oops so maybe Conley would be thrown into the trade who needs a fresh start he obviously isn't the answer in Memphis.

Memphis looks good too:

Mayo/ Conley/ Bledsoe (Memphis will be playing point in the summer league as a trial run)
George/ S. Young
J. Smith/ Carroll
Randolph/ Arthur
Gasol/ Thabeet

Thats a big and skilled linup.

Apparently the T'Wolves came

Apparently the T'Wolves came to the Griz with the trade. I dont know why the Griz are hesitating because I would much rather have the 16 than 25 &28
