NBA Draft Trade Rumors Include Timberwolves Trading Pick For Roy Hibbert

The 2011 NBA Draft is just a couple of days away, as most Minnesota Timberwolves fans are probably well aware. The fans are also well aware that David Kahn is in the proverbial catbird's seat as new trade rumors seem to be sent to him each day in an effort to lure away the second overall pick in Thursday night's draft.

The last seems to be the Indiana Pacers offering Roy Hibbert and their pick -- 15th overall -- in exchange for the right to select Derrick Williams, according to Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

The overture hasn't gained traction in Minnesota, according to Wojnarowski, but it would seem that the Wolves must be asking for upgrades at the center position. Maybe Darko Milicic isn't as good as we all thought?

Updating an older trade rumor, by the way, the Milwaukee Bucks have shot down the Andrew Bogut for the Wolves top pick. That's disappointing, but not totally unexpected.
