So numerous rumors have surfaced recently about trades that the Wolves are supposedly involved in, and I was wondering whether there is a consensus about which trade Wolves fans would prefer. So far, I've heard about the trade in which we receive picks #4 and #8 for the #2 pick. There's also the trade in which we receive Danny Granger from the Pacers for the #2 pick, Michael Beasley, and Ricky Rubio. Finally, there's the Andre Iguodala trade in which we would have to give up the #2 pick, Martell Webster, Johnny Flynn, and Anthony Tolliver.
I, for one, think the Igoudala trade is too good to pass up. We'd finally be relieving ourselves of the Johnny Flynn debacle, and although we'd be giving up Tolliver and would never know what a healthy Martell could produce, Iguodala is a defensive stud and a good A2 player. I don't really mind the huge contract he brings because its time we get a huge contract under our belt with a player we know can produce. Having Iguodala would give us hope that we can look forward to the future with Rubio, Iguodala, Beasley, Love, and Darko. (Hopefully Deandre Jordan)
I think the #2 for the #4 and #8 would be a good second choice although it'd be a bit of a risk. I'd like to have Kanter and Biyombo, but it would be unlikely that Kanter would fall to 4 and I would never take a chance on Knight, due to our recent point guard failures. And the Danny Granger trade would be a terrible decision for Timberwolves management, so expect this trade to be the one that is made. Granger, a carbon copy of Beasley with less upside, would do more of the same for our team, and we'd have to give up our #2 pick and Rubio.
So what do you guys think?
