The trade: Rights to no. 5 overall pick in 2008 NBA Draft, Mike Miller, Brian Cardinal, and Jason Collins (MEM) for rights to No. 3 overall pick in 2008 NBA Draft, Antoine Walker, Marko Jaric, and Greg Buckner (MIN)

Just a year after gift-wrapping Kevin Garnett and sending him to the Celtics, Minnesota Timberwolves General Manager Kevin McHale fell in love with a potential KG replacement: Kevin Love. Knowing the Memphis Grizzlies were equally enamored of USC guard O.J. Mayo, McHale grabbed Mayo and in the hours following the draft managed to bring both Mike Miller and Love to Minnesota as the primary pieces in an exchange for Mayo. Memphis, now Mayo-less, probably regrets this one now. While Zach Randolph has given them a strong presence at the power forward spot, Love has emerged as one of the top players in the entire NBA, and may have been the difference in getting them over the top in the crowded Western Conference.
