NBA Trade Rumors Insist Minnesota Timberwolves Drive A Hard Bargain

The 2011 NBA Draft is almost minutes away so it makes sense that the NBA trade rumors being floated should be taken a bit more serious at this point. Unfortunately for Minnesota Timberwolves fans hoping for David Kahn to pull off a heist, it seems that his asking price for the second pick is a bit too high.

The Wolves have been shopping the No. 2 pick ever since they lost the lottery, it seems, but the reason they haven't been able to pull off a deal is apparently because Kahn's playing hardball in what's being considered one of the weaker drafts in recent memory. Unfortunately, while it might work out later, it's only irking rival front offices for the time being.

Many front offices are frustrated trying to deal with Minny for the No. 2 pick, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski. One executive told Wojnarowski that "if you want a deal right now, you're talking to the Utah Jazz."

Hopefully Kahn is able to eventually make this work to his advantage, but for the time being, it doesn't look good..
