Trade proposal


This is a trade proposal being moderately debated over at CanisHoopus (the Timberwolves blog), and we were wondering what King's fans take on it is. Essentially (as initially proposed by Chad Ford), the Wolves would trade O. Pecherov, M. Blount, and one of our young PGs to the Kings for Kevin Martin. What do y'all think?

 

What I'm most interested in finding out is what the relative value of our young PGs + an expiring (Blount) are to others who aren't Twolves fans. I'm hopeful this will be an opportunity to have some good dialogue with other teams' fans.

 

The three PGs offered, and a quick assessment on each so far:
1. Rubio - in Europe for another two years. Will still be young on arrival here. Solid steals, great facilitation ability, questionable offensive ceiling (although could become a solid 10 ppg guy).

2. Flynn - athletic, tough, doesn't back down from any challenge and relishes the chance to face guys who've schooled him before to return the favor. Evolving offensive game. Better assist guy than our offensive system/supporting cast would indicate. Still learning NBA man to man defense.

3. Sessions - also young, tough, but appears to be a very solid floor general. Good trooper thus far (meaning a high character guy). No 3 pt game, but good at drawing fouls. Appears to grasp Rambis' system better than Flynn at this point, although not as high an offensive ceiling as Flynn.
