Wolves Updates 5/27

From Charley Walters/Pioneer Press:
Some basketball people feel ex-Timberwolves coach Flip Saunders, after his Pistons contract expires in 2009, will be reunited with Kevin Garnett, who will be traded to the Lakers.

Don't be surprised if former Gopher J.B Bickerstaff ends up as an assistant with the Timberwolves.

From Sid Hartman:
Kevin Garnett, who sat out the final five games of last season because of some leg problems, doesn't seem to have any problem walking down the Metrodome stairs to the first row of seats behind the Twins dugout. The Timberwolves star is a big Twins fan.

On its website, Sports Illustrated has the Wolves taking Ohio State point guard Mike Conley Jr. with the No. 7 pick in the NBA draft on June 28. However, I doubt this will happen, as the Wolves are loaded with guards. It's more likely they will take one of three Florida big men if they are available: Al Horford, Corey Brewer or Joakim Noah.

From T.J. Simers/The Los Angeles Times:
The Lakers have been reluctant to include Bynum in a trade for some of the top players in the game, including Kevin Garnett, and yet the newspaper asks the question as if it's even a possibility, and then one-quarter of those responding say why not cut him.
