Wolves Deal Another Pick in Flynn Trade

Jonny Flynn’s bad hip nearly held up the Minnesota/Houston draft trade, as the TWolves had to amend the original trade for Jonny Flynn. “After the Timberwolves agreed to send guard Jonny Flynn in a package to the Houston Rockets for Brad Miller and the 23rd pick on Thursday, the trade hit a snag on Friday when the Rockets’ team doctors raised issues with Flynn’s hip injury, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. To keep the deal from falling apart, Minnesota sent a future second-round pick to the Rockets, league sources said. The issues wouldn’t have kept Flynn off the court, but did raise some concerns for the long-term. Whether Minnesota had been forthcoming with the information prior to the trade is unclear.”

    Can the TWolves do anything correctly? Blew the 57th pick on an ineligible player. Even the 2nd overall pick could have been picked by a 5th grader.

    That whole franchise needs to be contracted ASAP.

    Brad Miller is going to turn this franchise around and win multiple chips!

    Yeah but you know they are gonna be interesting to watch. Wolves make it in as the 8 seed , you heard it here first.

    @Max – now that Big Brad has taken his talents to North Beach, how many rings do you think the Wolves are going to win? 1? 2? 3? 4? 5? 6? 7? 8? I think the Wolves are going to make a run at breaking the Bull’s 72-win season record.

  • haslem

    yes and how the hell is darko white? how the hell is flynn black? these are actually interesting questions and they point towards how race is conceptual not objective. very interesting that someone said rubio was ‘white.’ Race isn’t real.

    Hopefully he’ll get back on track in Houston.

    Houston has no PGs outside of Kyle Lowry. Last year Courtney Lee had to play a lot of the point. Flynn will get plenty of playing time with the Rockets.

  • RunNGun

    As far as I know, the whole Timberwolves team has more rings than Lebron. LOL
