What we think we know: The Wolves have a young, cheap asset with quite a bit of potential in Derrick Williams. He seems less likely to reach that potential with the Wolves given the presence of Love. He's our best trade chip. We need a young wing badly and by rumors have had interest in Batum in the past (rumors of offering our pick for him the last two years). The Suns are in a tough spot given their contracts and Nash's age/pending FA. They need to deal Nash to start their rebuild and to salvage something rather that him leaving as a free agent. Portland has a decent squad, but their PG play has been weak. Batum is a good young player, but the Blazers didn't extend him before the deadline to do so and one has to wonder about that relationship going forward. http://games.espn.go.com/nba/tradeMa...radeId=6o4z3nk Wolves get Batum and Robin Lopez Suns get D. Williams and M. Camby Blazers get Nash and M. Morris. Wolves get their young wing in Batum and some salary filler in Lopez
PLAYERS: Robin Lopez
TEAMS: Phoenix Suns
