It's not clear what the Wolves will do at the trade deadline, but it is clear that more than the near future applies.

I'd take pretty much any of those shooting guard options listed for Luke if we could swing it. I fear though that the Wolves will end up taking some lesser bench player off another team for Luke that really isn't an upgrade over Luke or Shved or Gelabale at the SG. Guess we'll find out shortly here, if they do anything at all..... I also hope they keep D Will unless they could flip him into a legit SG. I'd take Evan Turner, or someone else that could come in and be our starter for the next several years, but nothing less for him. Williams is still a developing talent, hoping the Wolves don't sell low on him now.

andy13t...D.Williams is an undersized PF...it would be in your best interest except the reality of this.

The only player listed I would be at all interested in obtaining would be Alec Burks a player that I would have liked the Wolves to have been able to draft.He would compliment Rubio/Shved nicely. I would keep Barea to back up Rubio. For the trade to get him I would offer Williams and Ridnour.Like him or not Love is the starting PF for this team.Williams will have no role other than a backup when he returns.

We have a 6 foot 4 inch point guard named Rubio and a 6 foot 6 inch shooting guard named Shved, so it's not like we don't have size. Our backup guards, and Luke should NOT be a starter, are small, and I'm not attached to either of them. IMO, everyone except Rubio and Shved are tradeable, either before the deadline or this summer.

What's the point of trading anyway? Any player that plays for the Timberpuppies or MN sport teams either under performs or ends up with season ending injury anyway. This state is too cold and cursed to have a winning pro sports team.
