Timberwolves Will Trade Jonny Flynn To Rockets For Brad Miller, According To Reports

The Minnesota Timberwolves were often mentioned as an active trade partner before the 2011 NBA Draft, but most speculation centered on the T'Wolves shopping their second pick around to half the NBA. Instead, David Kahn seems to have solved his backcourt problem by swapping Jonny Flynn to the Houston Rockets for Brad Miller, as Yahoo!'s Marc Spears tweets.

Flynn's departure from Minnesota would pave the way for Ricky Rubio to be handed the keys to the Timberwolves' offense in his rookie season in the NBA, and Flynn gives the Rockets a dynamic scorer at point guard, even though Flynn's grasp of how to run an offense can charitably be described as rudimentary. Miller just adds depth to a tall Minnesota frontcourt.
