He is pretty big out there if I'm not mistaken. 

IIRC he has a lifetime shoe deal with a Chinese company.

Just read from Pelton that multiple big market teams will be able to offer one max deal, if not two max deals, next summer. I know this point has been beaten to death but if we want a pg, we’ll need to trade for one.

The good news is there aren't a ton of big market teams that can offer a starting spot.

The starting PG position is weak in FA next summer anyway unless you are looking for depth, we'll need to trade if we want a big time player.

It was not me.  I did not even know we could.  I assume you upvote with the plus sign?    I will let others downvote since I have no idea how to do that.

True but there are some that could require a starting PG...

- Knicks are a possibility unless Ntilikina breaks out as a passer.

- Bulls are another if Dunn doesn't improve, he's alright not great.

- Heat could be in the market for someone if Dragic leaves or they decide not to pay him.

We have a chance at attracting someone but we'd need to show significant progression this season. AG would need to have a borderline to all star caliber season, Isaac would need to stay healthy and prove he's a potential high end two way player, and Bamba would need to translate his game to the pros and prove he can be that dominant center and potential unicorn if his outside shot develops. If that young front court plays high level defense and shows a lot of promise, we'll have that to sell FAs on, but another so-so kinda season and they'll likely shun us.

2019 TIMBERWOLVES SECOND ROUND PICK

Why would we trade 2 expiring contracts for Powell and Dieng long term deals?

That's a really terrible trade for us. Like the worst trade I've seen this year.

We trade our expirings for worse players? And don't get good picks?

Just horrible
