So I have heard plenty of talk about what many of the teams in the lottery are planning on doing come draft day but one team I haven't heard much about is Minnesota.
They could go a couple of ways... A big man with a defensive presence would compliment Al Jefferson well but the only player that fits that bill is Thabeet and I believe he will be gone by the 6th pick. The T-Wolves also need to decide on a position for Randy Foye. I believe, like many, that Foye is a natural SG. So, Minnesota could be looking at a PG with this pick, which is good since there will be plenty available here.
Assuming that Blake Griffin, Hasheem Thabeet, James Harden, Ricky Rubio, and Jordan Hill are off the board; who will the Timberwolves take? (The guys I see as candidates are: DeMar DeRozan (I know he isn't a PG but could be best available here), Brandon Jennings, Tyreke Evans, Jrue Holliday, Stephen Curry, and Jonny Flynn.)
Tyreke Evans would be a perfect fit IMO
I look for them to get more of a pure pg to run the team. I like Flynn, but I could see Jennings or Holiday also being a good fit. Holiday would give them a bigger pg. I think Evans is going to be a shooting guard in the league.
They'll go Tyreke if he is still there.
Why does Tyreke Seem like the ideal fit? I just think he'd be going to high at 4 or even 6. To me Jennings makes a lot more sense for this team than Tyreke Does.
