Timberwovles president of basketball operations Flip Saunders tells the Pioneer Press that they're not "desperate" to trade up in the draft, but they still might give it a try.

As of now the Wolves hold the No. 9 overall selection in the June 27 NBA Draft. If they don't trade, history suggests they can still find a great player. Take a look at notable players taken ninth in the draft.

1997: Tracy McGrady, Toronto Raptors
1998: Dirk Nowitzki, Dallas Mavericks
1999: Shawn Marion, Phoenix Suns
2002: Amar'e Stoudemire, Phoenix Suns
2004: Andre Iguodala, Philadelphia 76ers
2007: Joakim Noah, Chicago Bulls

The current NBADraft.net mock draft has the Wolves taking Maryland center Alex Len with the No. 9 pick.
