|Minnesota Timberwolves Want Pau Gasol|
The Minnesota Timberwolves are still after Lakers All-Star Pau Gasol, and they are prepared to make some serious moves to get their man. The Wolves offered the Charlotte Bobcats Derrick Williams for their No.2 pick in yesterday's draft in an effort to help entice the Lakers to give up Gasol in a package deal.
Minnesota want to form a trio of Ricky Rubio, Kevin Love and Gasol to try return to the playoffs for the first time since the Kevin Garnett era.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are pulling out all the stops in an effort to land Pau Gasol. The Wolves’ interest in Gasol has long been rumored, with the highly skilled big man considered an ideal fit for coach Rick Adelman’s corner offense, and the kind of playoff-tested veteran needed on one of the youngest rosters in the NBA. He is also close friends with Rubio, the Wolves’ superb young point guard who is recovering from a torn ACL and hopes to be ready early next season.
If the Wolves buy out Martell Webster and decline to tender qualifying offers to Michael Beasley and Anthony Randolph, as expected, they should have plenty of cap room for Gasol.
