Wolves Over The Weekend

From the Pioneer Press:
The Wolves, however, have had no definite trade talks with other teams. So unless something intriguing materializes, the best bet is that Minnesota keeps its No. 6 pick for the June 28 draft.

According to Sid Hartman, both Hoiberg and Coach Casey think that ex-Gopher Vincent Grier, who had a workout with the team, could be a second round pick.
"Grier is a very athletic player, a very good defensive player," said Hoiberg, the former Wolves guard now involved in the team's front office. "He is a guy that you know what you're going to get from him. He is going to give you 100 percent every time he's on the floor, and guys like that, I like. You can find a spot for guys that give it to you every time they're on the court."

From the Denver Post:
Don't put too much into reports that Minnesota Timberwolves scout Rex Chapman could be the Nuggets' next GM. Chapman hung out with various Nuggets personnel at the recent predraft camp in Florida and has a connection with former Kentucky player Bret Bearup, a close confidant of Nuggets owner Stan Kroenke. But the Nuggets aren't expected to pick up steam on their GM until after the draft.
