Wolves Updates 6/9

Kahn on his European scouting trip and draft prep and more

From Jonah Ballow/Timberwolves site: 1-on-1 with David Kahn

Jonah Ballow:  And what about Pekovic and Milicic and what they are going to do as far as their future with this ballclub?

David Kahn: Pekovic would like to come to the NBA now, I think he's at the right frame of mind and right moment, he's 24 years old, he turns 25 this offseason, and I think he's very ready. Darko wants to come back to us. And that's a good thing, he said so at the end of this seaons and reaffirmed it at the end of this trip and so come July 1st when it's time to do free-agency that's something that we will have to start dealing with, but there's a sense and chance that both of those players, Nikola and Darko, could be back with us, in Darko's case back with us and Nikola for the first time

Jonah Ballow: A bunch of players came into the Target Center to work out not only for this team but for several teams, what did you see in those workouts and now what is the plan looking ahead to bring in some of the top elite guys into the Target Center in the next couple of weeks?

David Kahn: Well, as you indicated, most of the very top players don't go to the group workouts, you have to work them out individually, so coming this Sunday in earnest we will have a parade of players coming, not all identified for the 4th pick, some will be for the 16th and some will be for the 23rd pick, we are having a lot of players come in so we can see them and so the coaching staff can see them as well.


From Chad Ford/ESPN: 

Per sources in the league, the Philadelphia 76ers, Minnesota Timberwolves, Golden State Warriors, Detroit Pistons, Indiana Pacers, Toronto Raptors, Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder all have had discussions about moving up, down or out of the draft.


From The Big Lead:  Rudy Gay to the … Timberwolves?
