Minnesota's 2010 Draft Choices?

In the 2009 NBA Draft, the Timberwolves amazed me by choosing four [4] point guards. Two of the choices were lottery picks and a third choice was the 18th selection in the first round. That was quite an opportunity for Minnesota to move up in the world.

Anyway, two of those four decided to play in Europe while a third PG, Ty Lawson, was traded to the Nuggets. Maybe David Kahn had an ingenious plan that no one has yet figured out?

If I'm reading correctly, it appears as if Minnesota has 6 choices in the upcoming 2010 draft. They have 3 first and 3 second round selections. Wow! Maybe that was part of his plan?

Here's the question, how many point guards do you think GM David Kahn will select with those six choices? [LOL]

Im thinking at least 5. LOL

Im thinking at least 5. LOL jk
well unless they have the 1st pick, I think they shouldnt pick any pgs.
Flynn is their future PG, and they have a solid back up in Sessions, I dont think David Kahn is THAT stupid, is he?
anyways, I really hope they can get a couple of good wings and a good big man out of those 6 picks.

Agree with Quincey

I agree with Quincey, six selections in one draft is far too many for any team to absorb, even the Timberwolves. There are several teams with zero first round choices. I would be shocked if Minnesota doesn't give up some of those selections to one of those teams desperate for a 1st round choice.

I don't think Kahn will

I don't think Kahn will select any point guards this draft unless he gets the top pick.

I think the Knicks should try to acquire one of their late first round picks.

Nick Calathes

I didn't see that trade but you're right, Calathes isn't very good so it doesn't really matter. If his game improves, he could become a backup PG somewhere, but never a starter.

i like Calethas's game. i

i like Calethas's game. i dont think he will be a great player but i think he will be better then people think especially now that hes learning some of the euro game while playing over in europe. i think he has another 2 years on his contract after this but probably has a deal or a buyout for this year if he wants to come over

tezo83

Tezo83, I would be shocked if the Knicks fail to trade for one of Minnesota's, or someone else's first round draft choice.

On a related note, I've felt all along that Ricky Rubio will wind up in NYC.

Of course you know I was only kidding about Kahn selecting more point guards. On the other hand, I wouldn't be surprised if he did in fact go for one more PG in 2010.

I wouldn't be surprised if he pick one late in the draft if we end up trading Rubio/Flynn/Sessions. Then it would make sense. In all honesty, we only have 2 pgs on our roster right now. Its not like he was that crazy guys. He is preparing for the future where they will be making trades to acquire guys that they liked more than what was available in last years class. This years class is much deeper, so it actually could have been a very smart move. People don't give Kahn the credit he deserves, they just look at the present and do not look into the future. We weren't gonna ake the playoffs this year regardless of who we drafted.

Knicks

Knicks won't trade for a 1st round pick considering it will eat some cap space (there's cap hold for draftees, not much of course but still). They may trade for early second round picks as it doesn't bring cap hold and they're not forced to sign the players.

Wolves won't draft any PG outside of Wall with their first round picks (there are not much pg outside of him projected in the whole first round). Maybe one with a second round to have a third PG but not sure at all.

PG's Galore

I say they create an entire team of point guards, just think of the speed, athleticism, and passing abilities back and forth to eachother, I mean I'd take a 6'1 Center over a 7'1 Center anyday. SyKe.

i think the knicks will make

i think the knicks will make a trade for it since its unlikely that they get one let alone 2 max players. they will have enough to get a good 2 draft picks and still pick up a good free agent

Yep... Once the cap is set

Yep... Once the cap is set and it becomes 100% clear that they won't be able to afford two max deal free-agents (which has never been Walsh's goal anyway), they'll buy a first round pick or two.

M DYMES on Kahn

M DYMES, I agree that David Kahn has a plan but I don't know what it is. Last year he had a golden opportunity with 2 lottery picks, plus the 18th and 28th choices in the first round. Wow! You could almost rebuild your entire starting five with those kinds of options but he blew it.

Now he has another similar opportunity, it will be interesting.
