Trade rumor and Mock

First- the rumor:

http://www.examiner....-big-man-coming

NBA trade rumors suggest a Minnesota Timberwolves trade for a big man could be coming soon. The disappointment that the team has had in Derrick Williams is continuing and according to a report from Friday (Jan. 18), Wolves president David Kahn is looking to make a deal....The reason Williams is being brought up is because he is one of the main players that the Wolves have been shopping. It's possible that they could work up a deal that sends Williams and center Nikola Pekovic in the same deal.

------------------

Trade Machine:

Bobcats get Nikola Pekovic and Derrick Williams

Timberwolves get Hendo, Biz and Reggie Williams, (Portland 1st Rnd from Bobcats)

It is also believed that there could be an effort to bring in Phoenix Suns outcast Marcin Gortat but that is yet to be official confirmed. The club without a doubt are most likely to chase a forward or center before the end of the trade window.

Interesting. I doubt we would get Pek because he's such a hot commodity, but wouldn't mind or be surprised if we took a shot on Williams.

Don't think Charlotte wants an underachieving bust taking minutes away from MKG or JT and the only way to get Pek is to take on D-Will.

A more realistic scenario would be

Charlotte Receives

C- Marcin Gortat

2013 Top 10 protected pick

Suns Receive

DeSagana Diop (huge expiring contract)

Wouldnt mind taking a shot at Derrick Williams. Play him at the 4 and see if he works out, from what I've seen of the guy he just isnt a SF and the Wolves have been killing his trade value by playing him there. He can already hit threes about as well as Mullens and there is simply no way the rest of his game is worse than Byron

I love CP8789's deal... BUT, I think Williams still has a lot of potential at the 4 and I don't see that interfering with MKG's development. Add to that, Pekovic is a legitimate big man. He is basically Gortat only younger. If we could swing a deal for Williams and Pekovic without giving up a pick, I'm all over that.

take biz out of it and i start to get interested, but I am not giving up on a 20 yr old big man yet.

1st of all Williams plays the 4, so you dont have to worry about MKG/Taylor's minutes

2nd- you can keep dreaming that Diop and a pick will get us Gortat..

3rd- Pek is more than just a younger Gortat

Pek - 6'11, 290 lbs = a muscle bound, road graded of a beast child

avg 16 pts and 9 rebs

Gortat - 6'11 240 lbs

avg 11 pts and 9 rebs

Realistically there is no way the cats can trade for Pekovic or Gortat without giving up a 1st round pick. Just doesnt make sense, both are legit centers on good contracts

I agree- I edited to throw in there the Portland pick

On second thought, I may give a pick for Pekovic.

I've seen him mentioned in trade threads/rumors throughout the year, but why are they supposedly dangling him?
