Stan: As the Luckiest franchise T-wolves will be the 4-th ? if yes what's their pick ? Chad Ford: Actually they have a 35% chance of finishing 4th, a 17.8% chance of finishing 3rd, a 21.5% chance of finishing 2nd and a 25% chance of finishing first. So, finishing 4th is the most likely outcome actually. No conspiracy needed! If they go to fourth, I think they take Emmanuel Mudiay and explore trading Ricky Rubio (his camp has been pushing for a trade for a while) or break outside the consensus Top 4 and take Kristaps Porzingis.

Jeremy Johnson: Who would take him for that contract, that injury history, & limited impact? Without us adding something? Darren Wolfson: Recent injury clouds it. I know this: Flip budged on $55M because he knew he could trade the contract if ever need be. Twitter @DWolfsonKSTP

Glen Taylor: L.A. really wanted him. Well, I didn't know if I wanted him in the West. I thought I was getting better players. I thought L.A could not give me the players that Boston did. The Lakers offered a package built around multi-skilled forward Lamar Odom and 19-year-old center Andrew Bynum, a promising second-year player who would eventually become an All-Star. Odom had a history of flaky behavior, however, and Bynum was unproven. Bleacher Report

Critical early injuries to Ricky Rubio, Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Martin essentially changed the Wolves’ priorities, with coach and president of basketball operations Flip Saunders opting for the chance to develop young players. The Wolves traded veteran forward/guard Corey Brewer to Houston in December and veteran guard Mo Williams to Charlotte in February. “At that point in time, with the direction we were going, that was probably likeliest to happen,” Young said of the trade. “But I think they did a very good job, as far as going out there and shopping around, working with my agent, working with me personally as a player. Just keeping me abreast of the situation. The good thing was, there wasn’t anything behind closed doors or anything going on crazy.’’ Minneapolis Star-Tribune

A late lineup scratch Sunday when the Wolves went without seven players, Neal has been traded twice, at consecutive trade deadlines no less, since he bypassed a $1 million qualifying offer from the Spurs to sign for millions elsewhere, with only a fraction as much team success. “At the end of the day, unless you’re Tim Duncan or LeBron James or Kevin Garnett, you’re not really going to have a legacy,” Neal said. “I’m not going to be a Hall of Fame player or anything like that. So my job as a man is to put my family in a situation where they can be as comfortable as possible. That’s a decision I made, and to this day, I don’t regret it. I’d make that decision 100 times over.” Minneapolis Star-Tribune

THE TOP 50 PLAYERS IN TIMBERWOLVES HISTORY

Kevin Garnett remains unquestionably the No. 1 player in franchise history. The other Kevin can no longer threaten that position.
