Say this about Minnesota Timberwolves' GM Dave Kahn...he's nothing if not consistent. After the Great Point Guard Debacle Of 2009, Kahn has developed a reputation for headline-making and head-scratching moves during and after the NBA Draft.
While it wasn't apparent right away, Kahn was no slouch in 2011 either.
First, we come to find out that 2nd Round pick Tanguy Ngombo is actually 26-years-old, making him ineligible for the draft.
Until Flynn passed his physical on Friday, several NBA trades were held up in the league office. Minnesota had traded the 23rd pick to Chicago for the 28th pick, and immediately made a deal with Miami to move No. 28 for the Heat’s spot at No. 31. The T’wolves then sent No. 31 to the Nets for a future second-round pick and cash. Everything had to be put on hold until Minnesota further compensated Houston with the draft pick, and the Rockets agreed to clear Flynn on the physical.
The big question now is, was Minnesota aware Flynn's hip was in such bad shape and might not pass a physical before they traded him? With Kahn at the helm, anything seems possible.
