Timberwolves, Grizzlies Closing In On First-Round Pick Swap

I guess the Minnesota Timberwolves feel they need more than three first-round picks, because according to ESPN's Andy Katz, they're about to acquire a fourth. 

The Memphis Grizzlies and Minnesota Timberwolves are close to swapping first-round draft picks, a source with direct knowledge of the situation tells ESPN.com's Andy Katz.

The Grizzlies would send their 25th and 28th overall picks to Minnesota for the Timberwolves' 16th pick.

However, Draft Express' Jonathan Givony says the two teams are just having "discussions," and nothing is done. 

If the trade goes through, the Timberwolves will have the fourth, 23rd, 25th and 28th picks in the draft, while the Grizzlies will possess the 12th and 16th picks. Two picks in the teens makes sense, especially if the Grizzlies want to move up further. But three picks in the 20s? For that, there's only one thing to say.

KAAAAAAHHHHNNNNN!!
