according to realgm.com..... we turned down Flynn, 16 & 23 pick for our 10. I hope Larry has something better...

I know Yahoo! was the 1st to report the rumored Bobcats deal at the deadline w/ Ford and Rush for Augustin, Henderson and Nazr, but that trade never happened.
It sounds like Minnesota has counter offered if the Y! reports are true? In all fairness there is only one more year before Rubio is coming over, perhaps you move Flynn gain his confidence.
My guess is it would have to be Hibbert or Granger they are targeting. That or they have another trade in mind.
They really liked Evan Turner, perhaps #4 and #10 can get them Turner?
I've heard Avery Johnson likes Cousins, perhaps they can take Favors and keep him, or trade Favors to Philly for Turner or Iggy. I really don't know, my head is spinning. perhaps they're just throwing out that package to see what other teams might offer for it?
Do they have a bad contract we take back for Ford? That works for them b/c they have a starting PG for next season who expires in time for Rubio?
Or perhaps Wojo is just late on his reporting, and this is what Wells was referring to?
The Timberwolves are offering the Pacers Jonny Flynn and the 16th and 23rd picks for a package that includes Indiana's 10th pick.
According to Mike Wells of the Indy Star, the Pacers have turned down an offer from Minnesota.

Told you we weren't getting the full story from wells earlier...
Yeah well Wells hasn't updated his Twitter. So maybe they misread his post of the TWolves turning us down.
Just watched some highlights of Flynn and he does look remarkably like TJ Ford IMO. A stronger, more athletic version. But I think he looks to score a good amount. He obviously needs to work on shooting %s.
Might Wells have made a typo and meant to post that the Pacers turned down the TWolves for Flynn and #10 instead of vice versa?
Of course, it could have all been involved in a much larger deal, but it wouldn't surprise me that they would turn down a Flynn for #10 pick given what assets already have.
From what I understand, they turned down 10 for Flynn and we turned down flynn/16/23 for 10/granger.
So both teams turned down something at some point
ha, my head is starting to hurt. It's even more interesting b/c Wells tweet took place 4 hours before Wojo's?
My guess is this. Pacers offered #10/filler for Flynn. Wolves said no.
Wolves countered w/ Flynn, filler #16, #23 for #10 and Granger or #10 and Hibbert/Rush and the Pacers said no
I guess that's why I say it's irresponsible to report so little like Wells did... (or at least for so many to take him so seriously that's all the deal included...)
Most trade rumors end up not materializing because each team is trying to reem the other and get the best possible deal. They don't want to make a deal just for making deals sake. Each side wants to pull of a no brainer deal. That's why the number of trades that actually happen is so small compared to the number of talks that occur.
This is a no-brainer. Im assuming this would be #10 + Rush for #16, #23 + Flynn. Bird has to be a moron not to take this trade. This would mean we could also pick up Orton or Patterson with the #16 and possibly someone like Brackins with the #23.

1. man..apparently someone found my phone i lost last night at k street...i apologize for all the tweets sent out today it wasnt me about 1 hour ago via web
If there is any truth to this, then the pacers have to pull the trigger.
What's the rest of the package?
depends on what the package is with #10
