Report: David Kahn Will Trade Ryan Gomes?

David Aldridge of NBA.com writes that Minnesota Timberwolves forward Ryan Gomes is the most likely player to be traded on draft night.

Minnesota forward Ryan Gomes. His 2010-11 salary of $4.23 million is only guaranteed for $1 million for next season, so a team that acquires him on June 24 can save $3.23 million in cap room by July 1 if he’s released. You can’t find that kind of savings anywhere east of your area Target on President’s Day. It may well wind up that Gomes is traded on Thursday, released on Monday and re-signed by Minnesota to a new contract later in the summer.

For all things Timberwolves, head over to SB Nation’s Canis Hoopus.
