Get Alec Burks!

The Wolves should target Alec Burks.  He does 3 things we need from the 2 position:  (1) He can handle (2) He gets to the foul line (3) He passes well.  He went to Colorado as a 6'3 freshman PG and is leaving a 6'6 scoring wing.  But he also has a great IQ due to his time spent playing PG and running the offense with the ball in his hands.  He also is a good rebounder for a wing ~8 reb/40 min indicating good IQ and hustle.  Experts suggest his ceiling to be Brandon Roy but is more likely to become an Eddie Jones type player - that is pretty good!  A Rubio/Burks backcourt would be good for many years IMO.

Here is my Dream Draft:

Trade for Cleveland Pick #4:  our #2 overall and Darko's contract for the #4, a future first rounder or Anderson Verajao.  PIck:  Kanter or Biyombo

Trade for the 8th pick the pistons are making available:  Flynn+20 and we take on Rip's expiring.  Pick: Alec Burks.

Potential Lineup:

Rubio/Ridnour

Rip/Burks/Webster

Wes/Beasley

Love/Randolph

Verajao/Biyombo/Pek

I think we could field a solid first and second unit with this team.  Although the team is still young, it has defensive potential with Verajao/Biiyombo and I think Rubio and Wes will be good wing defenders.  PG defense is impossible in the NBA anyway.  Our 1st and second teams should be able to score with good, ahem...coaching: Rip, Burks and Wes will be filling the lanes for Rubio's dishes. Love being Love.   - the shooting of Beasley and Ridnour on the second team with Websters 3 pt shooting ability should be solid.  This is a team I can invest some time in.

Back up Plans (just for fun)

 Target M.Gasol or Rudy Gay...Whoever the Grizzlies will part with because they can't keep both. Or Monta Ellis.  with Beasley as trade bait.  

For example: Get M. Gasol in a sign and trade (Beasley,Flynn, #20) and do Pistons trade above

Draft D. Williams and Alec Burks

Potential Lineups:

Rubio/Ridnour

Rip/Burks/Webster

Wes/D. Williams

Love/Randolph

Gasol/Pek
