2010 NBA Draft: Chad Ford Says Minnesota Will Take Derrick Favors If Available

In his latest trade buzz column, ESPN.com’s Chad Ford writes that the Minnesota Timberwolves will select Derrick Favors with the No. 4 pick if New Jersey decides to pass on him at No. 3.

Sources in Minnesota are saying that they’ll take Derrick Favors at No. 4 if Turner and Johnson are off the board. The T-Wolves may be bummed by this development, but I think it’s a great deal. The team lucked into Rubio at No. 5 last year and get a steal with Favors at No. 4 this year. Those two together could be awesome down the road.

Head over to SB Nation’s Canis Hoopus to get excited about Favors.
