My take on the Wolves draft right now for each potential slot:
1. It would figure that this would be the year the Wolves hit the lottery jackpot. The hands down best player plays the same position as Kevin Love, who plays the same position as Big Al.
That factor is guaranteed to make this the year the Wolves get to #1.
And you're right, it would seem to necessitate a trade of some sort. My first choice would be trade the pick, not Love or Al. I'm still not as down as some on Love and Al working together on the same team. I think it would be fine. But adding a 3rd young player to the same basic group - that gets a bit crowded.
I agree. But it's a really nice problem to have: three good, young, interior power players, plus they've got Pekovic coming in a year, too. They can keep three of those four.
I still think the T-wolves get the third pick if Rubio stays in, and the second if he's out. It's the Laettner principle.

Sound in logic, but how does the Ebi corollary fit in to the Wolves' plans?
