How to help get us to where we want to go

No matter how much I want to fight it. No matter how much I like Thrilla and think he is a perfect compliment to Love....if Rick ain't gonna play him then we absolutely have to trade him. I don't really get it it. I'm not sure how he wouldn't be a better 3 than Wes, but it's not my call to make.

Nic Batum is the logical target, problem I see is that I doubt POR is interested in Williams with LA on the team. Here's a valid trade proposal that could get us Batum and then some corresponding moves to make us playoff ready.

Minnesota: Batum, Elliot Williams, Ronny Turiaf

Washington: Darko, Thrilla

Por: McGee and cap filler.

there may need to be some protected picks tossed around and maybe the inclusion of like Anthony Randolph or something but I think the general gist is legit: Washington, looking to shuffle the deck moves their inigmatic center for a high-talent PF to POR who would get something they could use in exchange for Batum whom they don't play and Min gets Batum and Elliot Williams to build their wings around.

Corresponding moves

Minnesota: Mayo

Memphis: Brad Miller, Wellington and Memphis 2013 pick. Mayo has been on the trading block for awhile, it isn't entirely clear what Memphis wants but a draft pick has always seemed to be a stumbling block in deals for Mayo. If we drop them two role players and a draft pick it could get the job done.

Mayo has been playing very well and looks primed to explode in a starting gig on a new team like the Wolves

Min: Favors, Bell

Utah: Ridnour, Randolph, Johnson, Utah's first round pick owned by MIn

This Utah moves admittedly is the most out there of the lot. I think Favors is absolutely gettable though, Utah won't be able to move both Jefferson and Milsap and it appears they prefer Kanter over Favors ATM, so anything is possible.

These moves would give us a core of:

Pekavic...........Favors

Love................Favors/Tolliver

Batum.............Beasley

Mayo................Elliot Williams

Rubio..............Barea
