Minnesota is still looking to land a high-level, impact player for its No. 2 pick. A source said one of the Timberwolves' many trade proposals was a request for Lakers center Andrew Bynum, which involved sending small forward Michael Beasley to Los Angeles. I don't see this deal or the reported offer involving Pau Gasol actually happening, but it sheds light on the caliber of player general manager David Kahn is hoping to net for his pick.
A source close to the Timberwolves said they haven't settled on whether to take Arizona's Derrick Williams or perhaps Turkish center Enes Kanter, but rival executives expect them to opt for the former over the latter. Yet, with the obvious duplication in skill set that comes with having Williams and Beasley, taking Kanter would be the bold move.
