Minnesota was busy late on NBA draft night, selecting the guy they said they wanted -- and then trading him to Memphis in an eight-player deal.

This was the best option for them. Let's hope he bucks the historical trend of Twolves #1 picks being busts (except Garnett of course).

Is it just me or did The Juice Jr. not look happy when Stern called his name and said "Timberwolves" in the same sentence? Anyway, YOU weren't fooled right Sid? 'Cause you had the inside dish. BTW: Garnett doesn't want to be on the USA basketball team and Paul Pierce wore out his welcome from the last time he was on the team.

Unless they can manage to trade this goofball for Love and another player the Wolves again have proven that they are aces when it comes to making crappy draft choices.

about who wolfies would take was "sid".....only way they wouldn't have is if one of first two choices FELL into their lap. mchale couldn't risk taking another one of his flyers on a "secret stud" that they knew about and no one else did.........sid you gotta start reading something besides your own columns.

Please tell me that this proposed Mayo/Love trade on ESPN is not true.

Wolves waited all of four hours to go from mediocre again to all out crap. I cannot believe theya re trading for Love. Nice call ,though SID. Hang em' up.

If the Wolves loved Mayo so much more than Love, why did they just trade for Love? If they couldn't be happier to have Buckner, why did they just trade him away in the same deal?
