Wolves Dangling Derrick Williams

Posted by Dakota Sports FM on June 24, 2013 at 10:30 PM

According to sources, in an attempt to get something for him, the Wolves are offering third year forward Derrick Williams around to multiple teams, per Jerry Zgoda.


"No surprise, but I'm hearing again fresh tonight that the Wolves continue to offer DWilliams around to see what they can get for him" — Jerry Zgoda (@JerryZgoda) June 25, 2013


Like Zgoda states, it's not surprising that the Wolves are trying to move Williams as he might have the most value of anyone on the roster that they're willing to move. While Williams hasn't been consistent in his first two seasons in the NBA, the former Arizona University power forward is only 22 years old, extremely athletic, and still has the potential to develop into a very serviceable power forward if he is able to consistently knock down open shots.


Two weeks ago it seemed the Wolves had a keen interest in Indiana Guard Victor Oladipo as president of basketball operations Flip Saunders flew out to Washington D.C. to talk with Oladipo's camp and have a private workout with him. In many draft experts estimations, Oladipo is projected to be a top-five pick, so you would assume in order for the Wolves to get that high they would need to move Williams.


However, over the past few days it appears as though Saunders has changed his stance on draft -- most recently saying he doesn't believe there is an impact player selected Thursday -- so it's not clear if the team plans to use Williams to move up in the draft or to acquire a veteran player -- most likely a shot blocking big man or shooting guard.


One would have to think the Wolves would opt to keep Williams if an impact player couldn't be had at the top of the draft.
