Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
The Brooklyn Nets are shopping their backup shooting guard MarShon Brooks and apparently there is an offer on the table from Brooklyn to the TWolves. All Flip has to do is accept and it's a done deal.
The trade would send the #26 pick to the Nets and in return would receive Brooks. Brooks was the 25th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. The Wolves had a chance to draft him with the 20th overall pick, but this was during Kahn's trading spree in which he traded A LOT of assets for cash (to finance Kurt Rambis' firing).
Brooks shot just .273 from three last season. For a team desperate for three-point shooting--especially from their two-guard spot, I don't think MarShon would be the greatest fit.
I would much rather keep the 26th pick and draft a project big man such as Rudy Gobert, Gorgui Dieng or Jeff Withey.
Nothing is imminent and there's a good chance that this trade never comes to fruition. Stay tuned for more.
