NBA Draft 2011: Timberwolves Have Plenty Of Options

The 2011 NBA Draft is just hours away, but everyone should already know that, and the hometown Minnesota Timberwolves have the second and 20th overall picks in this evening's affair. Everyone reading this should already have known that from reading Mr. Gates' earlier post, but it's worth noting just in case.

The televised Draft coverage will begin at 6:30 on ESPN with the Cleveland Cavaliers officially going on the clock with the first overall pick at precisely 7 pm. This Draft is rather important for the Wolves -- and president of basketball operations David Kahn -- considering they have the highest pick ever in franchise history. With that pick, however, come some difficult decisions.

The Timberwolves have been shopping the second pick -- seemingly being turned down with all of the offers that would actually help this team -- and will more than likely be active all the way up until the last second they have to left to submit the pick. There have also been numerous rumors that the Wolves would be interested in shopping their second pick in the first round and perhaps even buying a pick in the second round.

It's safe to say tonight might be busy. To get yourself updated, feel free to check out all of the NBA trade rumors related to the Timberwolves and their draft picks, the players they've worked out up to this point and a quick rundown of Minnesota's own Blake Hoffarber and his draft prospects.
