Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports tweets that Minnesota Timberwolves General Manager David Kahn is considering trading his first pick in the 2009 NBA draft and starting point guard, Jonny Flynn, for the No. 10 pick in this year’s draft.
Minnesota offering Jonny Flynn and two first-round picks (16 and 23) to Indiana for a package that includes the 10th pick, sources tell Y!
Mike Wells of IndyStar.com tweeted about a similar deal, although his phrasing seems to imply it was the Pacers who initiated the discussions.
T-Wolves turn down Pacers offer of the 10th pick for PG Jonny Flynn.
Tom Lewis over at SB Nation’s Indy Cornrows says the trade talks seem legit but they raise some questions.
Wells doesn’t throw this type of stuff out for giggles, so he’s surely secure in his sourcing that the Pacers continue scouring the league for a deal to land a young, viable point guard.
Of course, this raises some questions. Where was Flynn on the Pacers’ priority list for point guards? Does this mean a deal for Darren Collison ain’t happening? How about Ty Lawson? I’m thinking Flynn would rate above Lawson and while I really prefer Collison, the Hornets are likely demanding a steeper price. Obviously, so is Minny at this point, which begs the ultimate question.
How much are the Pacers willing to give up to bring in a point guard?
