Swapping Picks with Minnesota?


Ideally I'd have us swapping picks with Utah and us taking Okur's contract, as mentioned in previous posts. But assuming that a deal with Utah falls through, I want to explore a scenario in which we swap picks with Minnesota.

With Minnesota having landed their PG, their most pressing need is likely a Center, since they have Rubio at 1, Wes Johnson at 2, and Beasley/Love at 3/4. With Kanter being labelled as more of a PF than C, I can see a scenario where Minnesota would benefit by swapping picks with us and using the #6 pick to take Valanciunas or Biyombo, who would both be a better fit for the TWolves than Kanter. We, of course, would use the #2 pick to take a potential franchise cornerstone in Williams or Kanter, whomever falls to us first. 

The most obvious issue is what assets we would need to give up in order to acquire the #2 pick. I'm definitely in the same boat as those members here who are against giving up McGee, but I wouldn't mind trading away Seraphin, N'Dyiae, or both (not that either have much value...).  I might have to think twice about Jordan Crawford, but I'm not totally against that either, especially if we resign Nick Young and/or have Alec Burks or Klay Thompson fall to us at #18.

So what are your guys' thoughts on whether this scenario is realistic, or whether it's even good for us? Where do we go from here in order to make this happen? Would taking an undesirable contract off Minnesota's hands be enough to swap picks with them? If we give up a prospect or two, who might Minnesota want?
