Wolves Updates 6/20

Draft Express is, as always, a wealth of information today. According to the site, the Wolves allowed Danny Ainge and Chris Wallace from the Celtics to watch Sunday's workout with Brandon Roy, Rudy Gay, Thabo Sefolosha, and Marcus Vincius Viera de Souza. In return, the Celtics are supposedly inviting McHale and the Wolves to a workout in Boston on June 23.

Consistent information out of Minnesota says that the #1 player on their board is combo guard Randy Foye , as he had one of the most impressive workouts they've conducted this far and are enamored with his toughness, perimeter defense, shooting and all-around attitude.

Minnesota also supposedly has the option of moving down in the draft, as an offer is on the table from the New Orleans Hornets to trade the #6 pick in return for the #12 and #15 picks.

Information we received today says that as many as six teams are currently in the hunt to trade up for the #1 or #2 pick, and that it?s likely Adam Morrison that they covet. The six teams are Minnesota, Boston, Houston, Phoenix, Portland and Charlotte.

Hoopsworld/Stephen Litel has an article on possible changes the Wolves might make before the season.
