What a waste of $. These so called scouts should be fired for no other reason then they do not produce anything.

The best ? Really? Where's the talent on this team then ? Please!....

It sounds like Enes Kanter could become a dominant center in the future. It would be great to see the Wolves swing a trade with the 20th pick and a current player, to move up to take him and also get Derrick Williams with the 2nd pick. Easier said than done however!

Enes Kanter has too many question marks for me to feel comfortable with the Wolves drafting him. Is he the next Dirk? Is he the next Darko? Go with a more sure-thing, and draft Williams.

I've heard a lot about the T-wolves international scouting in recent years. I have no idea how they got such a strong reputation though. The results certainly are telling. How many worth while international players have the Wolves ever drafted? Get serious.

You can make fun of Enes Kantor or even Ricky Rubio as long shots, but you all would have drafted Greg Oden and look how unproductive he has been. He might even be released by the team. True superstars like Blake Griffin are few and far between. Every team takes chances on centers. Oden was supposed to be a sure thing.

David Bertans? This kid sounds like he has his head on straight and other teams consider him a promising talent. But this does remind me of some of McHale's not-so-great picks.
