11:26 AM ET 06.02 | Because Derrick Williams will have to play behind either Kevin Love or Andrei Kirilenko next season, he's expected to be the Timberwolves' main chip in trade talks this month. Williams turned 22 on May 25. It wouldn't be surprising if the Wolves packaged the 6-8, 240-pounder with their No. 9 overall pick in the NBA draft to move up to take shooting guard Victor Oladipo from Indiana. Kirilenko, by the way, has not given the Wolves any indication that he plans to use an escape clause in his contract.

This is something the Cavs should look into. Not saying they should jump on the deal right away but they have options and I actually like Derrick Williams. I think he has potential to be the next (healthy) T-Mac.

Clippers should trade for this guy. They need a 4 that can shoot from the outside.

If the Clipps got Williams, what would they do with Blake???

I say both of them are gone. But who wants them?

What? Are you nuts? That's like waiting for Whoopi to into Kournikova. You do realize there are conversations that take place that the media and fans aren't apart of? The league and it's employees are aware of who is good, who isn't, who's trending upward etc...
