The most exciting part of the 2010 season for the Nets fans is the draft lottery haha
The Timberwolves have 6 selections in the 2010 draft, 3 of them in the first round and a 4th at the beginning of the 2nd round. If my source is correct, and if the draft were held today, they would have the
2nd, 17th, 24th, 32nd, 44th, and 46th overall picks
How many point guards do you think they'll take this year? If you didn't already know, they took 4 PGs in the 2009 draft.
I think Minnesota learned their lesson last season where they essentially wasted a golden opportunity with 3 first round selections. This time around, I truly believe the Timberwolves will actually select young guys who can make them a better team. Isn't that a novel approach? - LOL
It will also be interesting to see if they trade any of their first round selections. NY Knicks anyone, a team with zero first round selections.
good thinking...They desperately need depth badly...If they drafy right they should end up with one all-star, a starter, 2 solid role players, and then they still have the 2nd round picks

You mean as opposed to the source that is the official NBA website and is quoted right above your post stating that Minnesota will have picks 1-5 (lottery dependent), 16th, 23rd, 45th, and 56th?
I'm really pissed that OKC is at 21 instead of 19 or 20. That might make a huge difference when they try to trade up. I mean Boston won their division, i think that used to count for these things...
Im sick of the people knocking on Minny for taking those PGs last year. My reasoning...
1. The depth of talent at PG in that draft was unreal
2. Rubio was hyped to have arguably the greatest potential in the draft.
3. Flynn was taken...how is that bad now considering Rubio's buyout and the fact he stayed overseas. Kahn may have for seen this.
4. They had a ton of picks so they trade the pick to DEN and THEY took Lawson
5. Ellington is a tweener, but more a SG than PG. He was good value in our position given his performance in the tourney.
6. We took Calathes and traded him to the Mavs. Leaving us with only 2 PGs that we took from this draft.
7. Kahn probably knew this years draft would be deeper considering the possible lockout.
8. PG depth is lacking this year so we got it last year and can trade it for higher value this year if need be.
Kahn did a respectable job IMO and our future is looking bright with plenty of cap space and picks in the coming years.
Sure we probably should have taken Curry (who is also looking like a PG) but not many people thought he would transition this well to the NBA game. We went for talent and when you need to rebuild as much as we did/do taking BPA is the way to go IMO regardless of position.
I don't remember who made the comment above about the numbers on my list, but I want to clarify what I said. Yesterday I read an article by a sportswriter about the draft and the Timberwolves. I don't know how accurate his draft list numbers were but I simply copied and pasted them into my post. I'm fairly confident he was at least relatively close.
More importantly, it appears as if Minnesota holds the key to this draft. They have multiple selections, probably too many for one team. My guess is some will be used for trades because you can only select but so many guys in the same draft.
