How Much Would the Wolves Need to Get to Trade their 1st Pick (w/Poll)?


To me, the question isn't whether the Wolves should trade their pick but how much value they need to get back to consider it. Personally, this draft class seems more like '06 than any other class because it's possible that some guys who slip to the late lottery could use that as motivation to become great players. It's also possible that some of the better athletes who are a bit raw with their skills could end up as the best players if they are motivated to be great and end up with a team that will help them get there. With that in mind, it doesn't seem like a top 4 draft pick has the best long-term benefit, as it does in other drafts. In your responses, you can obviously assume that value is partially dependent on which pick they end up getting.

A few additional questions to consider:

  • Are there certain picks that you'd consider but not others; for example, everyone's talking about the #1, but what if they ended up somewhere in the 2-4 range?
  • How much should not having a lottery pick next year affect their decision here?
  • Should they overpay for a rookie from last year or the year before if they think they can turn him into a superstar (Paul George? James Harden?)

UPDATE: Now we know. Who do they need to get to make it worth trading the pick?
