The Minnesota Timberwolves and Milwaukee Bucks have discussed a trade involving Andrew Bogut and the Wolves' No. 2 pick in Thursday's 2011 NBA Draft, reports Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500 in Minneapolis. Wolfson cites multiple sources who say the teams have discussed the deal, and that Milwaukee apparently initiated the talks.
Bogut was a third team All-NBA performer in 2009-10; he suffered a broken arm late in that season that has yet to fully heal. His 2010-11 campaign was a disappointment attributable to that injury, which killed his shooting ability. Bogut is due $39 million over the next three seasons, but is one of the few legit potentiall All-Star centers in the league. He was the league's top shotblocker in 2011, and has finished in the top 10 in the league in total rebound percentage in each of the past two seasons.
The Bucks have the No. 10 pick in Thursday's draft. Wolfson reports that in the discussed trade, that pick would apparently be going to the Wolves along with Bogut.
