are you crazy?
Demps said at the press conference that he really believes Wolves will be better this season, and that pick is not a lock to be a high one. If he really believes this, do you think he is shopping the pick around the league to teams that have less faith in the Wolves?
If teams think that pick is guaranteed to be top 5 in a somewhat loaded draft, what would they give up for it? Do you listen to those offers and maybe pull the trigger or do you take the risk and bet on another year of T'Wolves misery.
Assets are like stocks and this stock is pretty high right now. It could go up a little higher, but it has more room to fall than rise. I would at least listen. You?
Absolutely not. Sounds like Demps is preparing himself, just incase they are good.
They're gonna tank.
To deep of a draft id take a chance and wait it out to see where that pick falls.
I'd hold on to the pick.
Any offer that will be coming our way for the pick will most likely have us taking someone that's not on their rookie contract anymore.
I want the cheap young talent more than anything. That pick will at least be top 10, and in this draft, that might as well be top 5.
Terrell Brandon | Vince Carter | Keith Van Horn| Theo Ratliff | Zydrunas Ilgauskas
2003-2004 | 46-36 | 4th in the Pacific Division |5th in the Western Conference
What for? Ideally we want a young stud big to match with Gordon. That list is pretty short and a little sketchy.
Hornets would still have their own 1st rounder and a young vet in Lopez as opposed to taking their chances in the lottery and then taking their chances again on a 19 year old.
I will list to offers and reject the silly ones, consider the others.
Pick for Iguodala = silly.
Pick for Rubio and Love = hmmmm
Pick, Aminu, Gordon, Kaman for Paul and Bledsoe = pure comedy
I wouldn't give away the pick. It's way too valuable for a team like us. We need to find that face of the franchise player and our 2 picks in the first in that very deep draft increases our chance at finding him. Keep the pick, and don't look back.

Absolutely not. Even if the Wolves aren't the most awful team in the entire league like most people think, there is still no way that their pick won't be in the lottery. Wolves ceiling is late lottery pick. If you don't think that, then you pretty much think that the wolves are a playoff team which i just can't see at all. So if the pick turns out to be a late lottery pick, in this draft you're still looking at some REALLY good players.
I'm starting to worry that instead of rebuilding Demps is going to make some rash moves to patch things up and make a .500ish 8th seed type of team. I really don't see what you could get for that pick that would be better than it's potential. Multiple picks? An extremely promising player under 25?
Now is not the time to be trading for 'established players.' This team needs to build a base first.
We need to either tank, or be contenders. Period. And the latter isn't happening anytime soon.
Of course you want Dell Demps to listen to offers. He's not doing his job if he's not listening to even the craziest proposals. But in reality you want to think certain things are not tradible like say a top level pg or a number one overall draft pick.
Unknown Poster, relax man this is coming from a poster, not Demps, Demps understand how value this pick is and the only way i can see him trading it, is if someone offer some young up and coming players plus their number 1.
You're talking about unproven talent in the lotto, then say you would consider a trade involving two completely unproven talents. Neither have stepped on a court.
I like this guy's enthusiasm.
I would consider trading the pick for another pick that we KNOW will be low. Like, maybe a swap including other players, of picks with Toronto? I mean we know Toronto will be a very low pick.
What players could we possibly get with the pick? I see some people suggesting Love, and I just don't see that as a option. Do we really think Minn. would consider trading Kevin Love for their own pick back? Sounds crazy to me but I would do it in a heart beat. A. HEARTBEAT.
As for Brook Lopez? Not too high on him. He doesn't do what I want in center as well as I would like: Defend and Rebound.
Greg Monroe? I would consider it. I mean we would still have our own pick and he is due to break out at any time.
