NBA Trade Rumors: Timberwolves Looking For First Round Pick

The Minnesota Timberwolves moved out of the first round when they traded their No. 18 pick to Houston for Chase Budinger on Tuesday, but it's not as if they don't want to add more young talent.

Wolves president of basketball operations David Kahn said at Wednesday's introductory press conference for Budinger that he's not done making moves and would like to explore getting back into the first round, via Ray Richardson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press:

"Acquiring Chase was a necessary step to help us get better, but you can assume other changes will be made," Kahn said Wednesday. "I'm confident we'll be able to do some other things as well."

[…]

"That's one of the many things I've been doing today, trying to see if we can get back in," Kahn said. "I have no idea of what might occur tomorrow night."

The 2012 NBA Draft is Thursday night and, perhaps, the Timberwolves roster will look significantly different when it is over. Either way, it sounds like they'll be involved in some interesting rumors.
