Chase Budinger: Traded to Minnesota Staff

Update: Budinger and the rights to Israeli Lior Eliyahu were traded to the Timberwolves from the Rockets for Minnesota's first-round pick (18th overall) in the 2012 NBA Draft, the Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

Recommendation: It's possible he could be moved again as the T-Wolves may make several transactions this summer. If he stays with Minnesota, he could emerge as the starting shooting guard as the job is wide open.
