Report: Timberwolves and Warriors discuss Anthony Randolph trade

Thumbnail image for nba_randolph.jpgAnthony Randolph is young and has a world of talent and potential. That doesn’t mean Don Nelson is going to play him unless he has to, but the talent is there.

Other teams recognize that talent and would like to have it.

Like the Timberwolves, who have talked to Golden State about an Anthony Randolph trade, according to ESPN. No parameters of the deal were released, although you can bet the Warriors would not let him go cheaply.

The Warriors had let it be known last season that they would trade Randolph for the right offer, but apparently never got one they liked enough.

Randolph has a world of athletic ability and has shown it for stretches, but he has spent more time in Don Nelson’s doghouse. Like a lot of rookies. The Warriors have quietly hinted about maturity issues. They mean about Randolph, not Nelson, even though the latter has frustrated and angered a number of promising young Warriors players (Monta Ellis and Anthony Morrow among them).

Randolph is coming off an ankle injury that forced him to miss the end of the season, however he is expected to be back and ready to go for the season. He even has bulked up his thin frame with some muscle, according to reports.
