MINNEAPOLIS -- If Flip Saunders used yesterday's pre-draft press conference to mislead any general managers or media out there, there's only half a bluff to call.
And that's assuming Tuesday's reports of the Timberwolves' interest in trading for Brooklyn Nets shooting guard MarShon Brooks have any substance.
According to the New York Daily News,Minnesota and Brooklyn have pondered the idea of a trade that'd send Brooks to Minneapolis, possibly for a draft pick -- likely No. 26 or a second-rounder -- andor one of the Timberwolves' reserve point guards.
There's conflicting evidence as to the transaction's seriousness, but sources floating the idea at least back up Saunders' statement Monday that the Timberwolves are shopping around for potential deals.
"There's been offers. Nothing's intrigued me enough to get excited about," said Saunders, Minnesota's president of basketball operations. "Every call you make is potentially a trade call, and we're talking to everybody every day."
