Any time the biggest news breaker is heard trying to get a hold of our POBO 3x in 20 minutes just days before the draft, it's going to result in a post on a Wolves message board.

Sorry that bothers you.
I don’t care that someone posted the video. It’s about the depths some will go to scrounge up baseless rumors in order to feed an insatiable appetite of speculation. It’s like lessons haven’t been learned.
What does it hurt?
It just astounds me that people will still take a 20 second clip with absolutely zero context and spin it into “ZOMG WIGGINS GETTING TRADED” after digging up some rando’s Twitter post.

Could that be the case? Maybe. Is it likely? No.

It’s Woj. He’s known every pick before it’s happened for how many years now? And he’s trying to call the GM of a lottery team days before the draft? How do we know he isn’t calling every other team? How do we know he’s not going down the line to try and gauge where each team stands 48 hours out?

But of course, in true fashion, we jump for the most unlikely of scenarios.

Hmmm...start over with the #1, #4, and #11...do we like the draft this year that much?...if you could ship out Gorgui and keep ROCO...Teague off the books next year....Wiggins?

How close are we really with KAT?...the same with Zion?

Why would New Orleans trade Zion? Where are the Pelicans with Towns, Ingram, Ball, Holiday?

Towns > Zion. Wouldn't you reckon? Even with max money vs. rookie scale, blah blah.

If they would, I suppose they would trade for KAT for the same reasons the Wolves wouldn’t trade KAT. Understandably though Zion’s talent and potential and rosters are absolute factors as well. I really just posed the ponderings from a Wolves perspective given KAT is the most untouchable and it would be a definitive shift in a different direction for Wolves.

can Zion be a top 10 player? He needs a jump shot. I'm inclined to think KAT > Zion as of now...

NO would be stupid not to do Towns for #1. The wolves would also be stupid for doing that.

well, if NOP's recent eye test means anything to them, KAT averaged 27-17-4 with 3 bpg in four contests vs the pels this year. and KAT went head to head against AD in three of the four.

Holy shit. Will they give us Richardson? He had a sort of injured down year. Wigs and Gorgs for Richardson and Whiteside? Man, go get shit faced and play darts and shit is happening. Guess it's lean in to the curve and get drunk again.

If you've put in the hours to be at your level of "awesome", you're going to need a few millenniums to become tolerable.

Mia wants Whiteside off the team. He doesn't like them and they don't like him. Richardson was taking some shit during the year for not taking the next step and there was some noise on how they should have included him in a trade for Butler.

And Spolstra and Riley are just way smarter than us and they may think they can turn Wigs into what he should be.

Which is why they'd offer Waiters and James Johnson.

Well of course they would. They offered that for Butler and 5 different guys last year. And that's why they have none of them and still have J. Johnson and Waiters.

Maybe they are just making him available to just give a “State of the Wolves” report before the draft. They used to do something to talk about it on the radio to drum up interest in the draft/team and try to sell some draft related promotion.

If they move up in the draft I would be shocked, but that would likely mean that Coby White knocked them on their asses when they saw him workout.

We will see.....
