    I think that's pretty realistic once a few picks are peppered in. It does a few things:

    1. Rids the Wolves of Dieng's contract
    2. They net a solid player in return
    3. Iman's contract comes off the books next summer

    The only concern/risk here is how many picks are going to be enough to satisfy BOTH Minnesota and Sacramento. I'm tihnking at least 2 future 1sts and maybe at least 2 future 2nds

    couple other concerns are that 1) it moves Minny firmly into lux tax, which they probably won't agree to and 2) SAC already has more bigs than they know what to do with

    yeah, keep that in mind next time to you post a Sheridan tweet. He also said a Lebron photo in June was in Houston, when it was a Cracker Barrel in Ohio.

    I assume 1 to Sacramento and 1 to Minnesota. I think Gordon, 1st rounder and diengs contract relief is a heck of deal. Theyd likely have to trade a 1st rounder and 2nd just to get rid of diengs contract.

    No we can't. Come on man.

    The Wolves can't get two first round picks for Butler now, you think you'll get them for him when he's 32/33 and in decline?

    Caris LeVert? Josh Richardson?? All these JAG's supposedly off the table for a superstar LMAO. All while we are dangling Eric Gordon who was just recently named 6th man of the year and averaged 18 PPG off the bench that's not a better offer??? LOL

    I don’t have any info on that but No time table as far as I’m aware, but just like other reports indicated it will be sooner rather then later. Training camp has started I’m sure wolves want to get their show on the road along with butler.

    The way everything sounds I wouldn’t be surprised if this is all said and done by at the lastest Monday but who knows. Thibs did say they won’t rush and make the best move for them.

    If the Nets are not even willing to trade LeVert then there's no way in hell they trade Jefferson, i'd say same thing with Russell, maybe...what the hell are they offering? 1st rounder i guess is not available...Carroll (expiring) and other young players like Dinwiddie ecc? Meh...

    We have without a doubt the best player on the table *Gordon* outside of the youth [But still young] unless MIA offers dragic or something.

    And Dragic is 32 yrs old due close to 40 mil over the next 2 years; Minny is paying Teague 19 mil over the next 2 years.
