This is interesting. Wolves are looking into the Bobcats #8 and an undisclosed player. Remeber a few days ago when the Bobcats would be “willing” to be the third team in a KG trade? Makes me wonder – will they help Phx? Lakers? They’re going to help someone from the sounds of it.
ESPN: The Minnesota Timberwolves’ attempts to trade Kevin Garnett continued Thursday afternoon.
The Wolves have contacted the Charlotte Bobcats to try to help facilitate a deal for Garnett, one day after a potential three-way deal with the Phoenix Suns and the Atlanta Hawks hit a roadblock.
According to sources, the Wolves are asking the Bobcats to give up the No. 8 pick along with an undisclosed player. In the proposed deal, Garnett would go to Phoenix, and the Suns would send Amare Stoudemire to Charlotte. The Bobcats would also be required to take Suns guard Marcus Banks.
The Bobcats have been offering the No. 8 pick to various teams for weeks and have several offers. If they can’t get something worked out with Minnesota and Phoenix before the draft, the Bobcats will likely move the pick in another deal, a source said.
