Every paper in Boston is saying it’s just about done. Right when you think everything is nearly completed, a local news station reveals some interesting information. As reported by WCCO:

The reported deal would bring Al Jefferson, Theo Ratliff, Gerald Green, and Sebastian Telfair to Minnesota. The Timberwolves will also get at least one draft pick.

WCCO’s Mike Max had learned the Timberwolves may have been holding out for a first-round draft pick.

    Secondly, we’ll see what happens. KG traded to Boston or not, we have decisions to make. 25 million people in about three months can’t be wrong. That’s for sure.

    Sign: Webber to veteran’s minimum.

    Kobe/Mo Evans/Coby Karl???
    Lamar/Luke/
    JO/Vlade/Cook
    Mihm/Webber/Ronny
