Al Jefferson Trade-a-Palooza

So this time of year sucks, and there aren't many positives to take away from this Timberwolves team...So how bout we throw out some Al Jefferson trades!

Recent public statements by Kahn seem to insinuate that Al is staying and Love is going, but I still find it hard to fathom that Kahn believes:

A) We should employ a fast paced offense that flows into the triangle.


B) Al Jefferson is a better fit for that offense than Kevin Love.

I could understand believing:

C) Neither Big AL or Love fit in our offense.

But there's no way Kahn can believe both A) and B) right? Right????


So in that vain, lets throw out some of the most realistic Big Al trade ideas (from past and present posters). At the very least thinking about this and/or the draft is more interesting then the current product we see take the floor each night. You'll find the deals after the Jump...


Trade 1:

Chicago Receives: Big Al

Minnesota Receives: Luol Deng and James Johnson


Trade 2:

Pacers Receives: Big Al, Jonny Flynn, Utah Pick

Minnesota Receives: Granger, TJ Ford, Dahntay Jones (I believe we'd have to take on a bad salary to make this happen)


Trade 3:

Detroit Receives: Big Al, Charlotte Pick

Minnesota Receives: T. Prince, #6 pick in draft


Trade 4:

Memphis Receives: Monta Ellis, Jonny Flynn

Golden State Receives: Big Al, Thabeet, Utah Pick

Minnesota Receives: OJ Mayo, Kelenna Azubuike, Andris Biedrins (salary dump)


Trade 5:

Houston Recieves: Big Al, Ryan Gomes

Minnesota Receives: Shane Battier, Trevor Ariza, and David Anderson


Trade 6:

Phoenix Receives: Big Al

Minnesota Receives: Jason Richardson, Robin Lopez


Trade 7:

OKC Receives: Big Al

Minnesota Receives: Jeff Green, Nick Collison



So which deal do you like best? Which of these deals is completely un-realistic? Which deal is the worst? What are some other REALISTIC deals I haven't posted on this thread that you believe could happen?
