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.”
