HoopsHype Paulao Prestes rumors
Timberwolves Derrick Williams, Wes Johnson and Malcolm Lee are expected to play in Las Vegas. The Wolves will bring 15 to 20 players -- including international prospects Paulao Prestes and Lior Eliyahu and Ohio State guard William Buford -- to minicamp and 11 or 12 will make the Vegas team.

Kahn, assistant general manager Tony Ronzone and international scout Pete Philo will be in Spain to visit draft prospects Nemanja Bjelica, Paolao Prestes and Henk Norel -- all of whom are with Spanish clubs -- and no doubt, but perhaps discretely, will continue discussions with Rubio and his camp. They'll also scout a tournament of top European junior players as well while they're there. Minneapolis Star-Tribune
Kahn, Ronzone and other Wolves staff are headed to Europe at the end of the month to visit European draft prospects Nemana Bjelica, Henk Norel, Paulao Prestes and, yes, probably Ricky Rubio. They'll probably also see Darko Milicic and Nikola Pekovic while there. Minneapolis Star-Tribune
