The Minnesota Timberwolves are expected to listen to offers for the first overall pick, sources tell Sam Vecenie of The Athletic.
Without a clear consensus top pick in this draft, the first selection could be worth more to another team than it it is to Gersson Rosas.
"The consensus around the league is that this will simply be a value play for Rosas, not necessarily one based upon a specific timeline they want to adhere to," writes Vecenie. "Remember: Rosas and executive vice president Sachin Gupta come from the Houston school of thought under Daryl Morey, where they think of most assets in regard to trade value. If they decide an offer is good enough, the thought is he’ll take whatever he thinks is the most valuable for the organization long-term, versus the one that will help them win this year. Maybe it’s player capital, maybe it’s additional draft capital in a trade down."
