The Wolves have two picks in the first round f the upcoming Draft. The second pick overall is going to get a lot fo the intention, but they also have the 20th overall pick towards the end of the first round. SB Nation just came out with their latest 2011 NBA Mock Draft, and they have the Wovles going with Derrick Williams with the second overall pick, and Jordan Hamilton at 20.
The *best* thing about the Wolves winning No. 2? We don't have to wait long for the draft to slip into pure dadaism. In recent years the Wolves have picked No. 5 and No. 4. The wait was unbearable. Forget the salad, forget the entree, forget dinner: skip directly to the post-meal hookah session, led by the Grand Poobah Mr. Kahn. I hope he trades No. 2 for all of the picks, so we can have four straight hours of increasingly unhinged decisions. It doesn't count unless it ends in a nuclear winter.
I think that if the Wolves stay at No. 2, then Williams is probably a no brainer. He is that much better than the other prospects that are going to be on the board. I'm not sure what that will mean for the timberwolves future at small forward and power forward, but you have to take best available prospect here. With their other first round pick, No. 20 overall, they have the Wolves taking Texas swing man Jordan Hamilton. Their explanation of that pick is another David Kahn joke, so we'll leave it out.
