On today’s show, we get into the Minnesota Timberwolves draft night. A night that included no draft picks, but a rather meaningful trade of Ricky Rubio in exchange for Taurean Prince and a 2022 2nd round pick. Mixed into the pod are audio snippets from Gersson Rosas’ late-night press conference that help clarify what the Wolves were doing on draft night and what they may have planned for the offseason.

  • Myles Turner Fodder: Rosas’ suggests they will be pursuing a big man in the offseason to play next to Karl-Anthony Towns, potentially even a center
  • What Prince would bring if he is in fact the starting power forward
  • The financial flexibility created by swapping Rubio for Prince
  • Why Prince presents the same problems Robert Covington and Jaden McDaniels presented as small-ball partners for KAT in the frontcourt
