So the votes are in...
To review, Wolves fans and Griz fans were asked to grade the following trade for their respective teams:
G OJ Mayo
PG Jonny Flynn
SF Wes Johnson
C Pekovic or Koufos (Memphis pick)
And this trade was a winner for both fan bases. On Canis Hoopus, 215 respondents gave this trade a favorable rating of 56% to 21% and Griz fans supported the trade 69%-16% (24 respondents). Besides liking the trade more, Griz fans were far more enthusiastic about the trade with 41% giving the trade an A - whereas most Wolves fans fell in the B to B+ range.
What this tells me is that the Wolves need not include Pek or Koufos (money still works without them) to get this trade done. However, I would still pay the price as a Wolves fan simply from a team balance standpoint. After you give Love his starting minutes, there are only 50 minutes left for the other bigs. I think that is enough time for three players, but not four - and I think all of these players desperately need to play to develop their games. So give me a rotation of Darko, Tolliver and Thabeet and let Pek go to Memphis and get minutes as Z-Bo's understudy.
Congrats to both fan bases for putting forth a trade that works for everyone. Now let's see if Kahn and Wallace can work something out in the next few days...
