One of the trade offers for Orlando Magic general manager Rob Hennigan to consider before Thursday's 2013 NBA Draft reportedly comes from the Minnesota Timberwolves. According to Chad Ford of ESPN, Minnesota is shopping a trade package comprised of combo forward Derrick Williams, the 9th pick in the Draft, and the 26th pick in the Draft, to several teams, including Orlando. Minnesota is hoping to obtain a top-five pick in order to select either Victor Oladipo or Ben McLemore, Ford says, and neither player figures to be on the board at no. 9.
In a news conference on Wednesday, Hennigan said he hopes to be "opportunistic" in the Draft, and said there are "tempting" trade offers involving the second pick.
The Timberwolves selected Williams, now 22, with the second overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft. The Arizona product has averaged 10.5 points and 5.1 rebounds on 42.3 percent shooting in his two NBA seasons, failing to live up to lofty expectations. In his sophomore season at Arizona, the combo forward averaged 19.5 points and 8.3 rebounds on 59.5 percent shooting from the floor, but his game has not translated well to the NBA level.
