Not sure I agree with this, but here's what Ford said today in his live chat:
[Comment From Ben: ] What do you think the odds are that the Timberwolves can move up to select Evan Turner?
Chad Ford, ESPN.com: They have the goods. I think it would be hard for Philly to pass up a package of 4, 16 and 23 for 2. The question is whether the Wolves are willing to pay the price. If I was David Kahn, I'd do it. Evan Turner is a GREAT fit for Minnesota.
Really? I can see his point, if you really believe that the Wolves roster is ONLY missing Evan Turner. That is only if the Wolves can win with the rest of the current roster. Can Turner alone be worth 20 additional wins all by himself? Turner and Rubio could maybe give us an additional 30+ wins, which makes us a playoff team, but not by much. I'm not sold on this, by any means. Interesting to get this take on it from Ford, though.
Of course, later on he said that the Wolves are the most likely team in the top 5 to trade down. Here's the link:
