Whats up with People overvaluing picks 16 and on...yet undervaluing star players in the L

Is it contracts...salary scale..Most trade ideas are being shot down because teams trading Stars want draft picks...Draft picks 16 and on being considered more valuable then All star type veterans. What is the deal with this...There is a trade rumor that is very alive in T'Wolves and Sixers front offices that say Philly trades the 2 for the 4th/16th and 23rd...T'wolves are hung up about the 23rd pick...who can they even expect to get that will make their roster..let alone save that franchise...Have you made a mock draft...after the Lotto there is a huge drop off..WTF...Is the 23rd pick not worth Turner...16 hurts a lil...it is a lotto pick...but is that player better than ET,...will he even be on the roster game 1 of 2010 season...???why is everyone so in love with the concept of T'Wolves owning 5 picks, Grizz and Thunder holding some picks too...I though they got those picks to move up and grab assets...not draft players that will be locked on the bench or in the D'League....The Wolves and Grizz have to top 5 picks MIA....Rubio may never play for them and Thabeet is looking like a huge bust...They could have had Evans,Jennings Etc Etc....Hasn't their game plan backfired enough to see that it doesn't work unless you draft smart and use the allure of multiple picks to land a proven guy...maybe even a star...maybe even win for once...The Wolves have Big Al and 5 picks to dangle for a star ...Could even trade Rubio while he's worth something...why are teams and fans so blinded by the draft...sure these guys in the late 1st and 2nd rounds always suprise some...but how many real stars have been produced recently...not the HS player with upside days...and the "he's a Euro, stay away from him days...or even the He's a 7'3 shot blocker days...Manu/Parker and Redd are all old and in the down swing...who in the mid first to late pick have been really great lately????Wassup Guys...Let me know>>>

off point

there is lots of star potential in the late first round this year imo....lance stephenson or willie warren or larry sanders all could be had at 23 possibly.....motie xavier whiteside all possible at 16.....i would give away one of the later picks if i was minny but not both....that is retarded just to move up 2 picks......

Agree with midwest

It is retarded to trade 3 picks to just move up 2 spots. Honestly, Khan has done a great job. I believe last year, he wasn't expecting Rubio to fall to 5 and had his eyes set on Flynn and either Hardening or Evans. Since Rubio fell, he took best available talent and store him away to say 8 mil for 2 years and let Flynn run the team. As of right now, Rubio is a hot asset that teams want.

Who said the Wolves are going to take all 3 picks? They might give up one for a future pick for next year. It's always a nice thing to have multiple drafts.

rip off but could you turn down even turner

Teams are starting to value these picks higher, because they have got better at evaluating talent. teams are realizing that they can find capable role players that late, and rookie scale contracts are the best way to have the most cost effective talent.

the more picks they make, the more likely at least one will succeed.

Saying that, the draft is almost the only way to get truley elite talent, if a prospect that good wont be available at 4 it might be worth it. If you knew for sure that evan turner was going to be a grant hill, tracy McGrady level player, without the playoff holdups. and that pick 4 would only get you a 3rd mabye 4th option, do 2 extra picks really matter?

Though i still think they are asking for too much, and would never do this trade. Minni will get another chance next year anyway

Jrue Holliday 17th,Ty lawson

Jrue Holliday 17th,Ty lawson 18th pick, Darren Collison 21st,Taj Gibson 26th, Dajuan Blair 37th,Marcus thornton 43rd,Chase budinger 44th. cuz no one wants to give away players this good, even though i would trade 3 picks for evan turner if i was minnesota. if its not involving brands contract. This draft is going to have gems like last years though thats why minne is being stubborn but evan turner is clearly better than the 4th pick and its always the Best players who make teams better

Thats too much to give up

I want the Timnberwoves to trade up and get the 2nd pick to draft Evan Turner. The 76ers have probadly relized no one will take Elton Brands contract and that Turner and Igudala are basically the same player that either will be be great three point shooters. So why not make a trade to add depth to your roster.Asking for the 4,16, and 23 is too much for the Twolves to give up. The Wolves dont have a 1st round pick next year because of the Marko Jaric trade and the team truely needs depth. Look at all the teams left in the playoffs all teams can go to their bench for scoring. The Twolves can add two possible starters at 4 and 16. Maybe James Anderson and Wesely Johnson and a good bench scorer like Lance Stephnson or Jordan Crawford. Adding talent like that would make the Wolves better then 15 wins and give Rubio a reason to come over. But three picks for one player is too much. The most they should give is 4,16, and one of there second round picks.
