Consider the Timberwolves recent history with second overall draft choices: Derrick Williams, Michael Beasley and Darko Milicic. It's not pretty.

But if they get their way, they'll have one more recent No. 2.

A source tells 1500espn.com that the Wolves are targeting former Sixers and Pacers shooting guard Evan Turner, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2010 Draft. He became an unrestricted free agent after the Pacers didn't extend an $8.7 million qualifying offer.

After a putrid final few months with Indiana -- he only played four total minutes vs. Miami in the Eastern Conference Finals -- Turner fits what the Wolves are aiming for: a free agent on a 1-year deal.

In case the Wolves keep All-Star Kevin Love, the idea is to maintain maximum salary cap flexibility in July 2015. In addition to Love, the Wolves have expiring contracts in J.J. Barea, Ronny Turiaf, Alexey Shved, Luc Mbah A Moute, and Corey Brewer has a player option.
