NBA Trade Rumors: Timberwolves Turned Down Lamar Odom For No. 2 Draft Pick

The Minnesota Timberwolves have been involved in nearly every NBA trade rumor floated over the course of the past week, mostly involving the offering team denying that it was ever a possibility. The roles changed Wednesday, however.

David Kahn reportedly turned down an offer from the Los Angeles Lakers that would have netted Lamar Odom in return for the No. 2 pick, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Odom is not a better fit than Derrick Williams in the Wolves offense, and he might not even offer better abilities than the likely No. 2 pick, but it was nice of the Lakers to counter after previously turning the Wolves down in their attempts to pick up either Andrew Bynum or Pau Gasol.

If Kahn does make a trade before Thursday night, hopefully it’s moving down just a couple of spots so that they’re still able to get Enes Kanter (whom they’ve reportedly grown fond of), not completely out of the first round.
