Kevin Love is on deck to be recruited to New York in 2015, and that’s among the reasons the Timberwolves are so determined to make deals to climb deep into the playoffs these next two years. Young Minnesota players Derrick Williams and Alexey Shved are available in deals for veterans to help these T’wolves now, league executives told Yahoo Sports.

Wouldn't see us giving up Pau for Williams...

Besides the fact we'd need to trade more than Pau and we can't overstuff our roster.

 

We would need to take, Williams, Barea, Shved, Cunningham and Dieng in order to match up to Pau's contract.

And I can't see  us taking 5 players and giving them Pau, we'd need to unload more and at that point it isn't worth it.

Derrick can flourish in our system. He did well with playing time last year when Love was out.

Oh please god no. Derrick Williams will be a career bench player on a good team or a starter on one of the teams going for a #1 pick.

Shved is not that good. He's an inconsistent shooter and he seems to lack passion on the court too often. He's had his moments/flashes, especially last season, but far too few.

Trading Pau isn't going to land us anything but salary that will hurt the cap next year.  Pau is worth more to US as an expiring.

Yea he's fools gold.  I watched the Twolves about 4 times last year.  2 games where he showed flashes of good skill 2 others he looked like complete trash.  Shot sub 40% FG overall and less than 30% from 3.  Pretty much he's useless. 

Shved is not that good. He's an inconsistent shooter and he seems to lack passion on the court too often. He's had his moments/flashes, especially last season, but far too few.
