RUMOR: T’Wolves offer Lakers No. 2 Pick for Andrew Bynum

In their attempts to acquire young, proven talent to play alongside Kevin Love in the front court, the Minnesota Timberwolves have been exhausting all options to move the No. 2 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, which will be held this Thursday in New Jersey.

According to a post that appeared in the Twitter feed of NBA Confidential’s Sam Amick, the Timberwolves reportedly offered the the second overall pick in exchange for Andrew Bynum. However, while no official statement by the Lakers organization has been made regarding this report, it is highly unlikely that the Lakers would bite, as Jim Buss announced earlier this summer that their 23-year old center is untouchable.

Earlier this week, trade rumors between the Lakers and Timberwolves began to surface, specifically involving Pau Gasol, Kevin Love and/or the No. 2 pick as the main players in a possible deal. However, the possibility of a deal involving Gasol but not Love (and vice-versa) appears to have no chance at happening.

    The trade rumors with minnesota started out intriguing then laughable and now it’s just plain insulting, what the hell is minnesota thinking. This is like the lakers offering NO or Orlando their rookies and draft picks for CP3 or Howard

      Hmmm?   “This is like the lakers offering NO or Orlando their rookies and draft picks for CP3 or Howard.”  Interesting that you are comparing Bynum to either one of those multiple time all stars.  Pretty sure Bynum hasn’t done anything in this league except for get injured and take cheap shots on people.  I’m not saying it is a great offer but get real with your perception of Bynum.

      • rondo

        No you get real! BYNUM STAYS! You go to  Orlando if you want Dwight.

      • Braian sobrino

         the perception of andrew bynum around the league is that someday he will be a superstar. he has a high ceiling in terms of potential thats why we might be able to trade him for a player like cp3 or dwight howard because Bynum is the only center other then Howard that can dominate for long stretches of a game.

    on some good stuff

  • MARIO

    THAT’S A JOKE GIVE US KEVIN LOVE JONNY FLYNN AND THE #2 PICK AND I MIGHT CONSIDER IT

  • Johnjohn

    Heeellllll no…the only person we should give Bynum up for is D Howard!!! Let’s get D How in L.A!!!

  • rondo

    Hell no! The Lakers are not going to trade Bynum. Bynum is the only center who locks Dwight Howard’s azz down. Case close.

    • Joseph Apohen

      I don’t understand this article about Bynum involved in a Lakers trade? This must have been before he went to Philly. Then why am I reading old news?

  • Evilmrchicken

    hmm, if you think about it, this could be a step closer to getting cp3 or howard…get the real good rookie, add another player and bam, get cp3 or howard but unless MN gives up someone else…MN can go screw itself

    Wow this is insulting to the lakers.. LOL unproven player of this unknown Second round pick player for ANDREW BYNUM, a proven 2 time champion?

    you gotta be on something high. keep dreaming Twolves.

  • Bramirez7

    No Kevin Love, with the #2, means no deal. Something tells me that Gasol is ready to have a great year, but Bynum for Howard  would work.

  • Bwilliamstu1987

    GTF outta here..no way i know mitch is not that dumb to trade away our center for a rookie

  • Ray

    I love watching Andrew Bynum play and it would be a big mistake to trade him. I know he will only get better.

  • Joshk281

    I think the wolves are being stupid in their attempts to acquire Bynum/Gasol. Who would trade Bynum for a less talented Williams?? He still has a long way until he becomes “really” good. On the other hand, Lamar should not leave the Lakers..Why would you trade Odom. Who would lead the bench???
