Gee, I don't know. How about 2 firsts and Koufus who was still a young prospect. So three firsts basically, and eceryone said what a great deal the Jazz got. I'd take two firsts and a prospect for Jefferson. Plus we were taking a guy with questions about his knee. Now he is unquestionably healthy.

Koufos, blah, and whom did they take with those firsts? Or have they not used them yet? Al is not a god awful terrible player he isnt a life changer but he is not terrible, there is a 95% chance he is better than anything the Wolves will get with those picks or that the jazz would have gotten.

Rockets re-aquired Parsons for cash.
Minnesota then traded the draft rights to 28th pick Norris Cole to the Miami Heat for draft rights to 31st pick Bojan Bogdanović, 2014 second-round pick and cash. Minnesota then traded draft rights to Bogdanović to the Nets for 2014 2nd-round draft pick and cash.
Minnesota traded the 2012 18th overall pick from us to Houston for Chase Budinger and draft rights to Lior Eliyahu (2006, 44th overall).
*Minnesota traded Koufus in the Carmelo Anthony trade and Brad Miller to the Suns in the Wesley Johnson/Robin Lopez trade.*
So basically the TWolves (indirectly) turned the Al Jefferson trade pieces into:
2013 1st round top-14 protected pick from Memphis (via Houston)
Draft rights to Lior Eliyahu
A bunch of future second-round picks

You might be right...I don't recall seeing anything unusual about Al's P&R defense against the Bulls although Chicago did score 31 pts in the 1st-qtr, Noah is not a gifted screen-roll finisher and the Bulls had enough energy to close on the second night of a back-to-back at the end of a 6-game road trip. I agree Big Al definitely gets winded not only late in that game but often after playing 10 minutes or so his rebounding and effort running the floor drops significantly. He probably should be on a KG-type rotation - 6 minutes then get a quick blow. Wouldn't fix all his liabilities but it could help a little.
