Could the new CBA potentially save the Wolves from Clippergeddon?

It seems very likely that the minimum draft age will be bumped up to 2 years out of high school. Much like in the NFL with the rookie salaries, the rookies will be the first to go in the CBA-for as much as the players feel like you should be able to go to the draft at whatever age, if they can get something they want out of the deal they will leverage the players who currently aren't in the NBA.

 

Would that make it so that Clippergeddon might not be so bad? 2012 the draft would be only filled with those sophmores that weren't good enough to go to the draft this year. There is an impressive freshmen class coming in, but they will all have to wait till 13 to be drafted where as next year will likely be top 5'd with Sullinger and the UNC 3.

 

If the Wolves could land either Irving or Williams (hopefully Irving) they will probably have a chance to get one of the 2 best players in either this draft or next draft.

 

Further more as we saw last time there was a minimum age ban on the NBA draft it created 1 pretty bad draft (2006) then it created two drafts that where both really good with 2008 being the best draft of the decade, loaded with freshmen and sophomores that where forced to stay in school. So if Khan is fired at the end of next year we'll get a good GM (That is the wish) then the drafts will be loaded again.

 

Purely hypothetical, but some way to potentially not hurt quite so bad by Clippergeddon. If the Clippers get the no. 1 overall pick next year and Sullinger or Barnes is the best option it might not be the worst trade off ever.
