Current Wolves vs. Hypothetical Wolves

Sometimes I think about last year's draft and I get depressed. Supposedly if Sacramento had drafted Ricky Rubio, the Wolves were prepared to draft Tyreke Evans and Stephen Curry at #5 and #6....which would have been sweet.

 

But how much better off would we have been? Lets discuss after the jump...

This is how  our minutes were dispersed last year...

Players WP/48 Minutes WP
Brewer -0.023 2482 -1.19
AJ 0.115 2463 5.90
Flynn -0.03 2339 -1.46
Gomes 0.027 2210 1.24
Sessions 0.07 1732 2.53
Love 0.34 1714 12.14
Wilkins 0.132 1585 4.36
Ellington 0.01 1384 0.29
Hollins -0.167 1223 -4.26
Pavs -0.111 877 -2.03
Darko -0.104 614 -1.33
Pecherov -0.069 447 -0.64
Jawai 0.036 412 0.31
Cardinal -0.139 267 -0.77
Tucker 0.001 25 0.00
Hart 0.035 5 0.00
Total Win's Produced 15.09

 

This is how the minutes would have looked (IMO) if we had added Evans and Curry to the roster. I've eliminated Pavlovic and Flynn from the roster while decreasing the minutes of other guards/small forwards. 

 

Projected WP/48 Minutes WP
Curry 0.151 2600 8.18
Evans 0.159 2600 8.61
AJ 0.115 2463 5.90
Gomes 0.027 2210 1.24
Brewer -0.023 2014 -0.97
Love 0.34 1714 12.14
Sessions 0.07 1400 2.04
Hollins -0.167 1223 -4.26
Wilkins 0.132 1200 3.30
Darko -0.104 614 -1.33
Ellington 0.01 585 0.12
Pecherov -0.069 447 -0.64
Jawai 0.036 412 0.31

Hart 0.035 5 0.00
Total Win's Produced 33.89

 

As you can see, this would probably mean a 19 win increase. Not good enough to get us into the playoffs, but good enough to put us in the #10-12 range for our first pick...which would mean that the Clippers would get our first pick. Assuming this, I would like to propose a question. Say this year we are able to draft Evan Turner, which combination of players/assets would you rather have?

Steph Curry and Tyreke Evans

or

Evan Turner, Rights to Ricky Rubio, and Jonny Flynn
