Following up on a story that was just published on PRO HOOPS CENTRAL, the “Associated Press” reported Wednesday evening that according to their sources, a three-team trade is in place involving the Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Hornets and the Phoenix Suns. According to the report, the Suns will send center Robin Lopez and forward Hakim Warrick to the Hornets, they will receive forward Wes Johnson and a first round Draft pick from Minnesota and the T-Wolves will get cap space as they get cap space by acquiring the contract of center Brad Miller, who is retiring from the Association. They will also get guard Jerome Dyson and two future second round Draft picks in the deal.
That deal could lead to Minnesota signing veteran forward Andrei Kirilenko who wants to return to the NBA, after playing one season for CSKA Moscow. The three-team trade would allow the T-Wolves to sign Kirilenko and still have room under the salary cap for future moves.
