Providence point guard Kris Dunn is an intriguing NBA draft prospect, and there are plenty of tentacles to his story as it pertains to the Timberwolves. There were early reports that he wants to play for Minnesota and is therefore holding back information from other teams. Without reading too much into things, Dunn — an excellent defender — confirmed at the NBA Combine that he had spoken to the Wolves and had nice things to say about Tom Thibodeau.
But in an interview Thursday morning, Dunn said he is fine going to the Celtics at No. 3. That runs counter to a report from Yahoo's The Vertical saying Dunn doesn't want to go to Boston (No. 3 pick) or Phoenix (No. 4) because those teams have established guards.
That leads to this question: Does he not consider the Wolves to have established guards? And if Minnesota is in a position to draft Dunn at No. 5 and takes him, what would it mean for Ricky Rubio?
