Tyrus Thomas?

Your good friend and mine AWoj at Yahoo Sports is at it again, calling the Wolves a "sleeper" trade destination for Bulls forward Tyrus Thomas.



If it makes you feel any better or worse about the idea, Wojnaroski says:

Several league executives suggested the Minnesota Timberwolves could be a sleeper for him. Minnesota general manager David Kahn has been researching Thomas and has plenty of assets – three 2010 first-round picks, multiple second-rounders and a host of expiring contracts – to make it happen. Once the Timberwolves trade Al Jefferson(notes) this summer, they can re-sign Thomas and plug him into the frontline with Kevin Love(notes). Jefferson is expected to be traded for a talented, young small forward.

Trading for Thomas would be a way to get a long, athletic power forward with upside, and the Timberwolves could easily re-sign him this summer.

So Love plays, what, center? Or does Thomas play the three? Or is a trade for DHoward the second shoe to drop?

I'm not averse to Trying Tyrus for a few weeks, nor even considering re-signing him for a little less than he thinks he's worth this summer. I'm not even against moving Al for younger players. But trading him so that Love and Thomas can play together sans any center other than Hollins doesn't make any sense.
