The funny thing about that Minnesota trade is that year they drafted 3 point guards; Johnny Flynn, Ricky Rubio, and then Lawson, whom they immediately traded to us. Even if you want to say that Rubio is the better PG, they could have had a great one-two punch with Rubio and Lawson or at the least could have a valuable trade asset. Instead they keep Flynn (whom was a top 10 pick and was never any good in the NBA). Poor Wolves.
