Sources: Jonny Flynn on market
By Chad Ford
The Minnesota Timberwolves already have made one trade -- for Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry. Will they make more?
A number of GMs are telling me that the Wolves are out there offering Jonny Flynn around the league. Flynn was the No. 6 pick in the draft in 2009. The Wolves drafted Flynn and Ricky Rubio in the lottery -- passing on a number of other more successful guards including Stephen Curry, Brandon Jennings, Jrue Holiday, Ty Lawson and Darren Collison to get them. But injuries and general poor play by Flynn and the possibility of Rubio joining the team this summer now have the Wolves looking to move Flynn.
Where will he land? Sources say the Wolves have offered Flynn to the Jazz as part of a Raja Bell deal. They also are talking to several other teams, including the Blazers, about a deal.
