The 2011 NBA Draft will take place on Thursday night in Newark, New Jersey, with the proceedings getting underway at 6:00 PM Central time. Those who are wishing to follow the proceedings as they take place can tune in to ESPN, ESPN3 (online), or ESPN Radio, whatever their medium of choice might be.
Right here, we will be tracking what the Timberwolves are doing at tonight's draft, where they currently hold the second overall selection (as well as the 20th overall selection). There have been any number of trade rumors surrounding the Timberwolves selection, but at this point, nobody seems to know what the Timberwolves are going to. . .and, with David KAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHN in charge, that might even include the Timberwolves.
Will the Timberwolves keep their second overall pick and grab either Arizona's Derrick Williams or Kentucky Enes Kanter?
Will the Timberwolves trade the pick for an impact player and another draft choice?
Will the Timberwolves snag Williams at #2 and then ransom him off to the highest bidder?
The Cleveland Cavaliers appear to be all set to take Duke point guard Kyrie Irving with the first overall pick. . .after that? It's anybody's guess at this point. But that's what we're here for. . .we'll have the Timberwolves' selections as they happen, as well as analysis of those picks, and any trades the team might make.
