ESPN 5 on 5: Wolves




http://espn.go.com/nba/preview2013/story/_/page/5-on-5-1314min/2013-14-outlook-minnesota-timberwolves

Some interesting thoughts by ESPN's "panel of experts"

1) seems every agrees Defense is the biggest issue

2) Zach Harper by far knows the most about what he is talking about

3) Two rather interesting bold predictions:

Koremenos: Love gets traded by midseason. If the Wolves stumble out of the gate, there's a chance that Love will get moved while the team still has some leverage in trade negotiations. By waiting until the summer, when Love has only one guaranteed year left on his deal, Minnesota may not get as much in return since teams know an unhappy Love could opt out and become a free agent.

and this gem

McPherson: Derrick Williams puts it all together, averaging 20 points and 10 rebounds and becoming one of the best small forwards in the NBA. At which point we discover a hidden, incentive-based clause secretly added by David Kahn that locks him into a five-year max contract.

4) everyone has us in the playoffs!!!
