NBA draft-day rumors: Josh Smith to Timberwolves for second-overall pick?
|06.23.11 at 3:23 pm ET|
Josh Smith continues to jockey for the position of the MVP of the rumor mill.
The latest report, coming from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, has the Hawks trying to trade the high-flying forward to Minnesota for the second-overall pick in this year’s NBA draft. The Timberwolves were believed to be heavily considering Derrick Williams out of Arizona at that spot, and Wojnarowski didn’t mention the team as being interested in any deal involving Smith.
The Hawks would most likely take center Enes Kanter, who has drawn the eye of Hawks GM Rick Sund, with the second pick if they were able to acquire it.
