Seems like a fairly reasonable trade, but doesn't Philly seem far too eager to make this deal?
Memo to Derrick Williams haters: Wolves fans seem to be the only ones who think this guy can't step right into the league and be an impact player. I'm not saying he is going to be a hall of famer, but remember why you are saying he isn't a fit (and why Wovles brass doesn't think he's a fit) because we already have Wes Johnson and Beasley. Have both of them done so much that we can't entertain a trade scenario with them?
It honestly scares me how eager two basketball teams that have recently done a very good job of building their team through the draft (Philly and Indiana) are trying to trade for the 2nd pick and get Derrick Williams. When did we all get smarter than Larry Bird? He had a sketch run in the mid-2000's (Largely cause his best players he had to let go like S-Jax and Artest), but before then and since then has done nothing but a fine job of building a basketball club on the cheap and through the draft. Then throw in Cleveland that likes Williams clearly quite a bit. I have a tough time believing Kahn's knows what is best between the 4 teams I just mentioned, if he trades the pick or doesn't draft Williams I would put it on par with the Flynn pick for worst move he has made. It's a draft all commentators agree is a 2 player draft, and then a steep steep fall off after that, and we have the chance to take 1 of those 2 players.
So what if he isn't a fit? Was Al Horford a fit in ATL? In consecutive drafts they drafted Josh Smith and Marvin Williams, they found a way to make 3 players that have even less variety in their games than Love, Beasley and Williams. What if ATL had taken Mike Conely cause they needed a PG? They last 3 years of solid basketball could very well have been erased cause they would be without their best overall player.
