So the first proposal to send Al Jeff to the Bulls for Noah and Deng came up short with Wolves fans - 58% of you gave it a failing grade of D or F. For Proposal number 2 we will stay in the Eastern Conference Central Division:
To the Pacers:
PF/C Al Jefferson ($11M)
PG Jonny Flynn
PF Brian Cardinal ($6.75M expiring)
To the Wolves:
SF Danny Granger (about $12M for 5 years)
PG Jamaal Tinsley ($7.25M for two year)
The value for Indiana is they turn Granger into an excellent low post player to pair with Hibbert, pick up a legit PG prospect, and shed Tinsley for an expiring contract.
It might be a stretch to ask Indiana to give up their best player, identity of the team, and cornerstone to the franchise... but thankfully as Wolves fans we don't have to consider that. The question I'm asking, if the Wolves were able to pull off this trade - how would you grade it for the Wolves?
