With draft day just five days away, here’s some tidbits, thoughts and other stuf
Jerry Zgoda – of Startribune.com reports that
* Saw that Jordan Hill plans to work out for Memphis, which indicates the Grizzlies continue to think about moving down.
If the Wolves somehow can get that second pick to add to their own sixth, the players I’d think they’re targeting: Hasheem Thabeet (not Ricky Rubio) and Steph Curry.
That’d give you the shot-blocking presence Kahn apparently feels they need next to Big Al and the best shooter in the draft who also presumably can play point guard. Those seem to be the two greatest needs, don’t they?
Interesting, but if the Wolves get their hands on Thabeet…I can assure you McHale would have had little interest in investing so much to get him because he’s convinced Al and Kevin Love can play together most nights.
* There’s another trade rumor floating out there seemingly even more far-fetched than the Al and No. 6 to Phoenix for Amare: This one says the Wolves send Mike Miller, Randy Foye and Ryan Gomes to Boston for Ray Allen.
