NBA Draft: Will Wolves try to trade up for Victor Oladipo?


What the Timberwolves do in Thursday night's NBA Draft is anyone's guess, and there are plenty of them out there.

Marcus Fuller of the Pioneer Press wonders if Wolves president Flip Saunders will try and trade up to draft former Indiana shooting guard Victor Oladipo. The Wolves are reportedly willing to give up both of their first-round picks -- No. 9 and No. 26 -- and Derrick Williams to move up high enough to pick Oladipo.

Oladipo has drawn some lofty NBA comparisons, including one to Miami Heat star guard Dwyane Wade.

Oladipo was named the 2012-13 Big Ten Player of the Year, and National co-Defensive Player of the Year.

Just for fun ... take a look at the highlight videos of Dwyane Wade from his days at Marquette and Oladipo from last season.

NBA Draft coverage starts at 6:30 p.m. on ESPN.
