Wizards Trading 5th Pick to Minnesota?

ESPN is reporting the two teams have a deal in place.

The Washington Wizards are close to a deal that would send the No. 5 pick in Thursday's draft, Oleksiy Pecherov, Etan Thomas and Darius Songaila to the Minnesota Timberwolves for Randy Foye and Mike Miller...

Minnesota would then hold the fifth and sixth picks and apparently keep both.

Dallas had been linked to the fifth pick for a while now, but in terms of talent the Foye/Miller package surpasses anything Dallas could offer.
