Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- The NBA draft is Thursday, and we will finally be able to separate the lies from the truth from NBA executives. Don't blame them, it's part of there job.

Some experts have said that the Timberwolves might try to trade up in the NBA draft.

But, that would come with a price, perhaps Derrick Williams. But, head coach Flip Saunders was quoted saying that if Williams was in this draft,

he'd be a top-3 pick.

So, that likely won't happen. Saunders really likes Indiana's Victor Oladipo, The Wolves needs a shooting guard. But, they need someone who can play defense too.

"It's a need and the reason it's a need is because we don't have a great ability to protect the rim above the rim right now. Are protection of the rim with Kevin and Pek, hopefully Pek back is going to be on the ground taking charges and doing your dirty work early."

The Wolves will pick 9th and 26th in Thursday's NBA draft.
