Jonathan Givoy of Draft Express wrote:With the Timberwolves asking for "the moon" for this pick, one NBA executive said, it’s been difficult for them to find realistic trade options. That could change once they’re actually on the clock, but for now it looks like Williams will be joining Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio in a Timberwolves jersey.


Jonathan Givoy of Draft Express wrote:The Kings are looking for help at both point guard and small forward, but aren’t in love with anyone in this draft, as they’d much rather find immediate help in the form of a veteran. This pick could be available, with the front office and coaching staff under fire to improve the team as much as possible.


Jonathan Givoy of Draft Express wrote:The Bucks don’t seem to be in love with anyone in the draft where they’re picking, and have reportedly been one of the most active teams on the trade market over the past week or so. They seem to be willing to use this pick to help improve their salary-cap situation in advance of the new labor agreement, namely by ridding themselves of the contract of Corey Maggette.


Jonathan Givoy of Draft Express wrote:While Daryl Morey and co. don’t appear to be all that excited with anyone in this draft – they’re heavily exploring moving this pick in exchange for a 2012 first, sources said


Jonathan Givoy of Draft Express wrote:The Pacers are also heavily involved in numerous trade scenarios and could be active on draft night depending on how things pan out. They seem to have quite a bit of urgency to improve as much as possible in advance of next season, clearly looking to transition to win-now mode.


Jonathan Givoy of Draft Express wrote:Davis Bertans is rumored to have a promise at No. 29 from San Antonio


I can't remember any recent draft where so many of the picks have been put on the trade block.

GeryWoelfel:Bucks are open to moving No.10 and have had several discussions. As of now, though, they intend to keep the pick.

AlexKennedyNBA : The Spurs are expected to move #29. Plenty of teams are interested in acquiring it on draft night, but only if their guy is available.

AlexKennedyNBA: The Chicago Bulls are trying to package their two first-round picks - #28 and #30 - to move up. They're talking to a few teams in the teens.

WojYahooNBA: Kemba Walker could be the player dropping in lottery, especially because sources say Toronto (5th pick) and Detroit (8th) will pass on him.

TheHoopsReport: Word is that Andrew Goudelock may have a draft floor at 39 or 41. Could go as early as 27. NJ, Chi, Mia, Sac, Cha, LAL all in the mix.

^ Hopefully he keeps dropping and the Lakers can buy his pick.

Obviously, this is all pipe, but good holy bonkers that'd be awesome.

lakerswiz wrote:How often do these guys run full 5's in these workouts? Kemba seems to be dropping, but isn't he just going through drills and some one on one?

Depends on what the team wants vs. what the player and his agent are willing to put the player through. It's more 1 on 1, 2 on 2, or 3 on 3. A lot of teams aren't going to bring in 10 players on one day. The last time some of these prospects played 5-5 was during the big workouts in Minny and DC or the combine in Chicago.

Bryan (Denver): Any insight on the Lakers possible selections and trades?

Chad Ford (2:02 PM): Should be a solid guard prospect left between Norris Cole, Nolan Smith, Malcolm Lee, Shelvin Mack and Charles Jenkins. I bet one of their picks comes from that pool.

Chad Ford of ESPN wrote:What's the hottest place to be right now in the NBA draft? It appears to be the mid-lottery.

The Pistons, Bobcats, Bucks and Warriors are getting flooded with calls from teams looking to move into that range.

Among the teams that have made calls? The Rockets (who are offering picks Nos. 14 and 23), the Pacers (No. 15 and Brandon Rush), the Knicks (No. 17 and Toney Douglas) and the Spurs (George Hill).

Sources say the Rockets and Spurs are interested in Jonas Valanciunas if he ends up sliding. The Spurs also are eying Washington State's Klay Thompson, according to sources. The Knicks are looking at both Thompson and Jimmer Fredette with that pick. For the Pacers, it's Fredette.

The bigger question is, will any of them make a deal?

The Pistons are seriously considering the Rockets' offer -- especially if Kawhi Leonard and Tristan Thompson are off the board. The target at No. 14?
Markieff Morris. Morris wowed the Pistons in a big workout Tuesday, and they feel he could still be on the board there.

The Bobcats are in the most interesting situation. They are trying to package picks Nos. 9 and 19 to move up a few spots to get a shot at drafting Leonard. However, if Leonard is off the board, the Bobcats might be inclined to do a deal with Houston or San Antonio.

I don't think the Bucks or Warriors are inclined to do the Spurs trade, as Hill doesn't hold a huge appeal for either team. The Rockets trade might hold some interest, but not until certain players are off the board. Both the Bucks and Warriors have interest in Valanciunas if he falls, and both teams also are fans of Thompson.


Andy Katz of ESPN wrote:Minnesota has four trade scenarios on its board for the No. 2 pick. As of midday Wednesday, the Timberwolves now are leaning toward Arizona’s Derrick Williams over Kentucky’s Enes Kanter of Turkey. But the Wolves are actively listening to offers for No. 2. Phoenix and Washington are two teams that aren’t involved, but Houston, which owns pick No. 14, has proposed at least 10 different options for Minnesota's No. 2.

• San Antonio has offered George Hill to at least one team in the late lottery in an attempt to get into the first 14 picks if it can’t move Tony Parker to Sacramento or Toronto for a spot in the top 10. The Spurs obviously can move only one of the two points -- if at all -- and are attempting to include Richard Jefferson in the deal.

Chad Ford of ESPN wrote:Is Thunder point guard Eric Maynor worth a lottery pick? Sources say the Thunder have been quietly gauging interest in Maynor during the past few days in an attempt to move up into the top half of the first round. They've spoken to the Kings (No. 7) and Bobcats (No. 9) in particular in the past few days.

Maynor was the 20th pick in the 2009 draft, which was one of the most loaded point guard drafts. With so few quality point guards on the board this year, would a team covet him more than Kemba Walker or Jimmer Fredette?

Who are the Thunder after? Like a lot of teams, it seems they are in hot pursuit of Lithuanian big man Jonas Valanciunas.
