More Bad Luck for Wolves

The Wolves string of bad luck in the annual NBA Draft Lottery continued last night when the Wolves dropped two spots to get the 4th pick in the upcoming draft. That's the 7th time out of the 12 years the Wolves have partcipated in the lottery that they have dropped a spot. In their history, the Wolves have never moved up in draft position. This means that if they want to get their hands on Ohio State's Evan Turner, they will be forced to trade some assets in order to get their. That all depends on if the Wolves believe he is the answer to their problems and it also depends on how much the Wolves are willing to give up to get him. Expect the Wolves to try very hard to move up in this draft and use their other two first round picks as trade bait. Al Jefferson or Kevin Love might also be used as trade bait, depending on which of the two the front office prefers. If the Wolves stand pat with the 4th pick, expect them to take long looks at Wesley Johnson, DeMarcus Cousins, Derrick Favors, and Cole Aldrich.
