Just under one year ago, I put together this post on various trade scenarios that included Derrick Williams. While several of them are no longer feasible, given new contracts, etc., the thought remains …
Derrick Williams won't be a Pup for that much longer. What infuriates me the most about this, beyond it not working out for the #2 pick here in Minnesota, is that if he is already being dangled right now, he really REALLY should have been sent to Sacramento or Detroit on draft night with the 9th pick, ensuring we would have wound up with McLemore or KCP.
So now what do we do with DWill? Any new ideas or thoughts that would help improve this team?
Updating the trade to Philly: What if you do a DWill and Barea for Turner and JRich – that takes JRich's contract off of Philly's books for next year. Move Shved to the PG spot, where I think he is much better off.
The obvious name to throw into a trade is Shved, which bumps up the salary flexibility into another tier. I'm hoping the Wolves do this sooner rather than later to avoid distraction and an ability to build a bit more chemistry with the new pieces over the course of the season and … yep … into the playoffs!
