Draft Express' WoW take on Love/Mayo Deal

Here:

With the third overall pick, Minnesota took O.J. Mayo. While Mayo can grow into a productive player, his brief college career suggests he’s just not a productive player yet. Specifically, Mayo’s turnovers indicate he’s many years away from playing as an effective point guard, and Minnesota will have to hope he can live up to his defensive reputation to make this pick look good. Overall, the Timberwolves last three drafts had them taking Mayo over Kevin Love, Corey Brewer over Joakim Noah, and Randy Foye over Brandon Roy. Each of these decisions can be seriously questioned given Win Score analysis.

Last NCAA season's PAWS/40:

O.J. Mayo 0.7
Kevin Love 10.1

Corey Brewer 2.5
Joakim Noah 6.9

Randy Foye 2.8
Brandon Roy 6.6

**Update**

“Just when I thought you couldn't get any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!”

Minnesota may be learning from their mistakes after all.
ESPN is reporting a mega-trade with Mayo and Kevin Love swapping teams, dumping some ugly three year deals on Memphis, and moving Mike Miller to Minnesota in the process. The Wolves are left with a talented front court in front of poor guards and Memphis winds up with a glut of good guards with no skilled bigs on the inside. Surely, more trades are in line, but Minnesota sees the light at the end of the lottery tunnel while Memphis is going the other way.wer 2.5
