Draft
LSU PF Anthony Randolph
USC SF Davon Jefferson


Okafor is going to be moved to the 5 with Randolph and May battling for the 4 spot. Wallace is solidified as the starter at the 3 but Davon Jefferson and Dudley will provide some solid contributions off the bench. Richardson and Carroll look to take care of the two spot. Youngsters Felton and Sessions should compliment each other nicely as point guards.

MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES

C: Jefferson/Doleac/Madsen
PF: Randolph/Richard
SF: Rudy Cool/Smith/Buckner
SG: Batum/Snyder/Jaric
PG: Foye/Telfair/Chalmers

I went into this not wanting to change too much with the Wolves as I think their main problem last year was inexperience. They have a lot of young talent and the #3 pick was sure to add to that. However a big deal came up that I couldn't turn down as it got me Rudy Cool and Zach Randolph. With Rudy, the Wolves now have two great young players with he and Al Jefferson. Randolph has a big contract but so does Antoine Walker who was traded in the Randolph deal, and I'd most definitely rather take the young talented postman in Randolph. Teaming up with Jefferson in the frontcourt leaves some size to be desired, but their offensive skills can't be denied. We lost McCants and Brewer in the deal, and moved down from 3 to 5, but overall I think the trade made us a better team, immeasurably in the frontcourt. In the backcourt we retained our biggest piece, combo guard Randy Foye. The Wolves played a lot better with him on the floor this past season, and he's shown promise as a very good scorer and floor general in this league. Still not sure if we want him to be our PG of the future, but we'll give him a shot at it this year in what hopefully will be an injury free season. At SG we have Nicolas Batum who we got with the 5th overall pick. His ceiling is extremely high and we're confident that he can be a cornerstone of the team in the future. At the moment the backcourt is pretty weak and we need better big men off the bench, but not everything can be fixed in one offseason. We think we've made a big step in the right direction with the young talent we've brought in and look forward to our dynasty in the coming years.

#4 Overall - Jerryd Bayless - PG - Arizona
http://i.a.cnn.net/si/2007/sioncampus/12/11/top.freshman/p1_-Bayless.jpg

If we got the #1 pick we were going Derrick Rose all the way. But because of Clay Bennett, karma took a dump on us My Name Is Earl style. Bayless was the next guy on our board and we happily got him. Bayless has the potential to be a PG with a lot of offensive skills. He needs to learn how to distribute a little bit more and not dominate the ball but with the offensive talent he has... it can slide to start. He can create his own shot, destroy people off the dribble and already has NBA range. He can pull up from anywhere on the court and score. He is explosive and draws comparisons to Monta Ellis but with PG skills. That is not to say he can't play defense. He is committed to playing D. He also can get much better and he will. A great pick up for us.

#11 Overall - Chase Budinger - PG - Arizona
http://www.draftexpress.com/gallery/ChaseBudinger/1143734194.jpg

Jeff Green was traded for his pick because of the glut at the 3 position. Budinger is being brought in to be an offensive contributor and a valuable complimentary player. He has great size for the 2 guard position which is always good. I've never been a fan of smaller SGs. Having Bayless, Budinger and Durant running the floor with their speed is going to be a terror for years to come. All 3 can shoot the lights out and score the ball. Budinger is a very good perimeter shooter which will be very valuable when teams throw the eventual double teams at Durant. The main knock on Budinger is he doesn't have a killer instinct or a go-to mentality. That won't be a problem with Durant and Bayless around. Budinger will be counted on to knock down shots on the perimeter and, if need be, Bayless and Durant can perform in crunch time.

#23 Overall - Hasheem Thabeet - C - UConn
http://www.uconnhuskies.com/AllStories/MBasketball/2006/11/01/07aicmbb_128.jpg

Once again, the Sonics go with a ridiculously long African center. But this one is about 100x more polish then Sene... but even Thabeet is raw. But that is only on the offensive end. Thabeet is a dominating presence in his own end of the floor. He has the size so he can improve on his poor rebounding skills. But what we drafted him for was his blocks. He averaged an absurd 4.5 blocks a game [!!!] in 2008. With the defensive liability in Eddy Curry as our starter center, Thabeet will be a great change of pace off the bench as the back up center. He is very raw on the offensive end but he shows promise. He has shown that he can run the floor on the break [going to be great with this group] and shoots a high %, even on the line [70% for a big man]. He has a lot of promise and pressure won't be on him.

#32 Overall - J.J. Hickson - PF - NC State
http://media.wsbt.com/images/michigan%20state%20ibok.JPG

And here is our energy guy off the bench. If Hickson gets the ball, he's going to dunk it on your head... or atleast try to. That is going to get the energy in the game going. He's a very athletic player and uses that to his advantage. He can score with his back to his basket but can't score facing it as well. He is going to be our energy guy so that isn't as big as of a requirement. He can take contact and get to the line and shoot a respectable 68% from the line. He can bang down low and take the contact so he'll be our first big man off the bench a la Jason Maxiell for my Pistons.

#43 Overall - Nathan Jawai - C - Australia
http://www.news.com.au/common/imagedata/0,,5722686,00.jpg

And here comes the parade of developmental prospects. Jawai is a big guy with soft hands. So guess what... gonna call him Baby Shaq like the bunch of other 6'10" 280+ black centers. He has a lot of potential both offensively and rebounding so taking him in the 2nd and letting him cook for a few years overseas will be worth it. He has to improve his D and fundamentals but he is a developmental prospect so that will come in time.

#50 Overall - Anton Ponkrashov - PG/SG - Russia
http://www.draftexpress.com/headshots/antonponkrashov.jpg

Ponkrashov is a developmental PG prospect that has a lot of potential because of his size alone. He is a good playmaker "with notable ability to find the open man, effective in the pick and roll, prolific with kick-out passes, and who takes advantage of his size to better see the court and execute his passes over his rivals" [via Draft Express]. This alone made him enticing. He is very left handed in his offensive moves so that will have to be unlearned. He can hit jumpers off the dribble though which will fit in on this team.

#54 Overall - Nikola Pekovic - PF/C - KK Partizan Belgrade
http://www.draftexpress.com/gallery/NikolaPekovic/1193770098.jpg

Here is a player that, if he comes over, it'll be a great find. He is the top center in Europe's top league. He has all the physical attributes you want... size, hands, wingspan. He can hit a midrange jumper, post you up, finish inside and knock the snot out of you. He likes to bang and is very tough. He can rebound offensively and defensively. If he gets inside, which he is very good at, he is more then likely going to score. He has very few drawbacks and most of them have to do with a lack of athleticism. Because of it, he is more of a half court player and lacks on the defensive end. He isn't a great passer or ball handler but for all the other skills he has, he'll be worth it. A great find at the bottom of the 2nd round. Really surprised he dropped this far.

Off-Season Summary:
We feel that this team has improved a lot this off-season. We got rid of unhappy campers and bad attitudes such as Jermaine O'Neal, and Marquis Daniels. With the transition to a up tempo running team and in rebuilding mode, we picked up young guys that fit our system. One of our goals this off-season was to add shooters, speed, and younger players in the backcourt that play with a lot of energy. We got the PG of the future Mike Conley Jr. in a great trade that also landed us one of the leagues best 3 point shooters Mike Miller and Darko Milic, who could still turn into a good player. Conley is a quick PG who can score, make good plays passing, and plays good D and is a huge improvement over Jamaal Tinsley. Picking up Anderson Varejao gives us energy at PF, great defense, and a really good rebounder who is also very young. We also like our addition of Channing Frye who we feel can turn into a very solid player given the oppurtunity and he will start out at center here with lots of depth behind him such as Darko, Diogu, and Foster. Another goal for us this off-season was to build around franchise up and coming player Danny Granger and we feel we did so. We also added good bench players such as Juan Carlos Navarro, and Steve Blake and our two 1st round pick versatile forward Donte Green who we plan to use off the bench for a year or two getting considerable minutes at SF and PF and SG Courtney Lee who we are going to develop to eventually start at SG. We feel this team could easily make the playoffs in the weak East and eventually become a contender with our cornerstone players we have added. We felt we reached our goals this off-season and that we did very well.
