To keep the pick or trade it away: an AWAW debate

We’re kicking off our draft coverage at A Wolf Among Wolves by debating not who the Wolves should take (though we will certainly get to that), but rather whether they should take anyone at all. If Thibs/Layden, LLC has the chance to flip the 7th pick (or package it with anyone not named Towns or […]

That’s right. The worst-kept secret in the league was just made official – the Minnesota Timberwolves have selected Karl-Anthony Towns with the first overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Love at the Lottery

This from the Wolves: The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that All-Star forward Kevin Love will represent the team at the 2013 NBA Draft Lottery, to be held on Tuesday, May 21… “It’s an honor to represent the Wolves at this year’s Draft Lottery,” said Love. “With two first-round picks, we are in a good position […]

With the 58th pick, the T'Wolves select Robbie Hummel.

We can assume that the feet are paddling furiously beneath the surface, but as of right now everything seems calm. What are the options […]

The Eliyahu aspect of the trade shouldn’t really matter. He’s a good athlete that really can’t shoot or do much with the ball. I […]

The 2012 AWAW Draft Board: 1st Edition
