03:06 PM ET 06.17 | The NBA Draft is going to be one to watch for Minnesota Timberwolves fans everywhere. For the first time in what seems like forever, David Kahn will not be perched high above the Wolves' draft podium preparing to drop a bird turd on whatever ends up being picked. Flip Saunders is the man in charge and he seems ready to lead the team in a new direction. But who will the Timberwolves end up taking with the ninth overall pick in the draft? The consensus seems to be that they'll attempt to move up in the draft but if they can't get what they want, they may end up trading back. Trevor Mbawke is a name that is circling around the T-Wolves draft talks as he's one of a few names they called in for workouts this weekend. But while he's far from a top prospect, Mbakwe is a name that could fit in Minnesota and he wouldn't have to come very far to make Minnesota his professional home. Then again, the fact Mbakwe is just a stone's throw away from the Target Center at the University of Minnesota is likely a major reason he was worked out, but there could be some scenarios where Mbakwe could end up with the Timberwolves and one of them involves the Wolves trading down.

Minnesota is a hot mess. They would be the worst team in the NBA if that title wasn't the Bobcats'.

Many teams would trade their roster for Minnesotas. We have Rubio, Love and Pekovic and will prolly still have an older but efficient AK47. We've got great youth and can still bring in an MLE player. With up and coming players like Chase and Derrick, along with 2 1sts, the Timberwolves are in great shape for the future.
