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.
