Shopping list from Hollinger

 

John Hollinger on "under the radar" players who might be available and may be worth a flyer, in the vein of Darko last year. You know--not transformative moves, surgical ones. Local fave Anthony Randolph is the top of the list and Hollinger notes the Wolves' interest. Here's a list of the players with a couple of quotes for those without Insider.

Anthony Randolph, Knicks

"On defensive value alone, he should be in somebody's plans. That's why the Knicks are likely to get a first-rounder for him even though he's so far down their bench that he's hidden by Eddy Curry's shadow."

Brandan Wright, Warriors

Ramon Sessions, Cavaliers

Kyrylo Fesenko, Jazz

Derrick Brown, Bobcats

Luke Babbitt, Trail Blazers

Hey, wasn't he ours once? Hollingers notes that teams don't typically give up first round picks this soon, but that Babbitt may be available with Portland's post-draft management change. 

Courtney Lee, Rockets

Marreese Speights, 76ers

Ian Mahinmi and Dominique Jones, Mavericks

Jeff Teague, Hawks

Statistical note on Teague that may be relevant to a certain T-Wolf PG: 

"However, a mammoth turnover rate has been his biggest problem, and sometimes players of that ilk improve rapidly once they start figuring things out -- high-turnover young players in general have brighter futures than the low-turnover ones with similar overall productivity."
