tough

that would be a tough decision.. i think they draft wall and see how they play together, maybe play a new system with 2 point guards on the court at all times if they have flynn, wall, sessions, and rubio...

woah

didnt say to put all pgs on the court, that would be sucide, but two at all times would really create mismatches, especially if you have some bigger pgs..

trade flynn and rubio for a scorer or another pick. Whatever they do, they'd be smart NOT to trade Wall....

Take Wall

It would be utterly moronic for the Wolves to not take and keep Wall if they were in position to draft him. He absolutely trumps Rubio and Flynn as a prospect. Take Wall, trade Rubio and Flynn. Simple as that.

well

rubio and flynn would have trade value....

You could look at the kings, pacers, clippers perhaps, wizards and a few other teams. Possibly for a draft pick or some other form of compensation.

Easy

Trade Flynn and Rubio. Wall is going to end up as a franchise guy...Flynn will never be and IF Rubio is, it probably won't be for the Wolves. Even with that Walls upside and the talent he has right now is too huge not to take him.Trade Flynn and Rubio and fill out your roster. Lots of teams will have interest. A team like Minnesota has too little talent to stockpile everyone at the same position.

Wall is a level above Flynn...

and Rubio doesn't look like he'll be nearly the defender that Wall will be, so I think it is a no brainer that you take and keep Wall. The immediate move would be to trade Flynn, since he would likely get more in return than Sessions. Ideally by trading Flynn they would acquire a SG or SF with star potential. Sessions would stay on as the backup. We could wait two or three years to trade Rubio, when he is more likely to actually play in the NBA and thus maximize his trade value. But you would also hang onto Rubio for the 2-3 years to make sure Wall isn't injury prone or a head case (I'm not saying he is either).

Trade Flynn and Rubio

Trade Flynn and Rubio contract and keep Session because Session contract is not bad and it is looking more like he can play off the bench something i would want Flynn or Rubio doing. Minnesota will not win the number one though. I just dont see it happening.

Do you believe the lottery is fixed?

Why else could you not see the Wolves winning the #1 pick? I am of the belief that the Wolves got the #3 pick in 2008 as a reward for trading KG to the Celtics, one of the NBA's prized franchises. When you consider that the Wolves did the Joe Smith deal, I can't see us getting any further rewards. They will not get one of the top three picks in 2010 and will sit back in whatever slot they get.

I say trade Flynn for either

I say trade Flynn for either a scoring guard or a solid 4, and keep Wall. Won't be long before he's tearing up the NBA like it was high school

They could use...

They could use a trade of Flynn to the Clippers for their 1st back. Thee Clippers have their protected 1st.

U Draft the best available

U Draft the best available player...Then wait to see rather or not u need to make a trade...The Lakers took Worthy even though the had a good small forward in Jamaal Wilkes..Wilkes was later traded after Worthy matured..The Celtics took Mchale they didnt trade down...In 84 The Rockets held on to Olajuwon even though they had drafted Sampson the year before...And Olajuwon became a better player than Sampson...Some teams make the terrible mistake of selecting a player based on need...Portland really needed a center and choose Bowie over Jordan the greatest player ever..Becuz they already had Drexler & Jim Paxson....The Pistons wish they had taken Melo,Bosh or Wade instead of selecting a center name Darko...If they had choosen 1 of those guys and added him to veterans like Rip & Tayshaun ..They wouldnt be struggling now...Miami got it right in 2003..Many people were expecting them to pick Chris Kamen becuz they were in need of a big man..But they picked the best player in Wade...

They would keep Flynn and

They would keep Flynn and Wall until somebody came out and gave Kahn a deal he couldn't pass up, like with Rubio. I don't see them having any better than the third worst record in the league, how far would they drop at that slot? Isn't like #5? If they were to get the #2 spot, would they still take Favors and try to work him into their lineup? Or would they trade him? Who could they trade him to and what could they possibly get in return?

lol.."wolves rewarded for

lol.."wolves rewarded for making that kg trade"..i hope you were kidding wit that ninja..teams have made trades liek that to big market teams and werent "rewarded". and the number 1 pick would be a real reward not the number 3 pick. as far as the draft wall thing its very interesting. i wouldnt trade flynn though id keep both for a ahilw just to make sure because no pg is never a sure thing. you never know what injuries or lack of developments will happen so why not play it safe draft wall,keep flynn, and trade rubio. and if wall ends up being a legit 6'4 wit long arms you could play him and flynn in the back court. yeah wall isnt the best of shooters but minny isnt gonna be much of a threat for awhile anyway

The #1 pick would have been too big of a reward...

for the team that did the Joe Smith deal. The #3 pick was just throwing them a bone.

Anyway, some years the lottery results do turn out a bit suspicious, some years they don't. That year, I correctly predicted the three teams that got the top three slots. My logic was as follows--Chicago is a big market that needed a star (they could have given it to New York also, but the Isaiah Thomas mess was not a good situation in which to stick a rising young star); in Miami, Dwayne Wade needed a running mate; and Minny gets a pat on the back for giving KG to the Celtics. On the other hand, the Clippers getting the #1 pick this past season really doesn't look all that suspicious (big market but bad organization). Maybe Memphis got the #2 pick in 2009 as a reward for trading Pau Gasol to LA?

I'm not saying it's fixed, just that things look suspicious sometimes.
