Wake up Timberwolves fans… we have some headlines that caught even my attention late this morning:[/et_pb_text][et_pb_code _builder_version=”3.24.1″]
Darius Garland will conduct a last-minute workout in Tarrytown with the New York Knicks tomorrow, a source told ESPN. Garland is in serious consideration for the No. 3 pick. Minnesota, Boston, Chicago are teams looking at potentially trading up to No. 4 with Garland in mind.

Yes, you read that right. It was confirmed moments after I saw it by our guy, Darren Wolfson, who also mentions the Wolves looking into the 5 and 6 picks too. So yes, the Minnesota Timberwolves are trying to trade up as many as 8 spots in this week’s draft, in order to get their hands on Darius Garland, PG out of Vanderbilt.
It makes a lot of sense (almost too much sense) as Yahoo Sports points out here, after the Knicks pick at 3 (supposedly RJ Barrett), the draft gets wide open and neither the Pelicans nor the Cavaliers at 4 and 5 are looking to take a PG…. and the Wolves need one badly. Even the Suns, who need a PG even worse than we do, have had major interest in Tyus Jones and other veteran PG’s around the league.. *cough — Jeff Teague — *cough.
Garland is fucking good too.[/et_pb_text][et_pb_code _builder_version=”3.24.1″] [/et_pb_code][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.24.1″]
Special note to Gersson Rosas…. you make moves like this actually happen and find some hope for Wiggins (or in a perfect world, a decent trade) and you might just have me believing in something over there…. maybe.
