That’s right. The worst-kept secret in the league was just made official – the Minnesota Timberwolves have selected Karl-Anthony Towns with the first overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

Love at the Lottery

This from the Wolves: The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that All-Star forward Kevin Love will represent the team at the 2013 NBA Draft Lottery, to be held on Tuesday, May 21… “It’s an honor to represent the Wolves at this year’s Draft Lottery,” said Love. “With two first-round picks, we are in a good position […]

With the 58th pick, the T'Wolves select Robbie Hummel.

Robbie Hummel, small forward from Purdue University. I’m not sure what you’re supposed to do with a 58th pick. Do you grab someone you can stash away in Europe for a couple of years? Do you essentially pick a guy that can develop in the D-League for you? Is there a way to address a […]

What to expect from the 2012 NBA Draft?

That’s a good question. With the Wolves now in possession of a competent wing player and the 58th pick, there really isn’t much commotion on the surface of our draft waters. We can assume that the feet are paddling furiously beneath the surface, but as of right now everything seems calm. What are the options […]

Wolves Chase for a Bud…inger player? WORD PLAY!

Wolves have taken themselves out of the 18th pick fiasco that I babbled about yesterday by dealing it to the Houston Rockets for Chase Budinger and the rights to Lior Eliyahu. The Eliyahu aspect of the trade shouldn’t really matter. He’s a good athlete that really can’t shoot or do much with the ball. I […]

Befuddled by the process

The 2012 AWAW Draft Board: 1st Edition

We are 23 days away from the NBA Draft and we’ve already seen the Wolves invite 26 different players into Minneapolis to have a gander at what they can possibly add to this organization. For the most part, we’ve seen players that probably aren’t good enough to be taken with the 18th pick in the […]

First sessions will be comprised of: J’Covan Brown, G, Texas, Drew Gordon, F, New Mexico Miles Plumlee, C, Duke Tomas Satoransky, G, Sevilla (Spain) John Shurna, F, […]

A little solace in a cruel finish

The Utah Jazz made the playoffs. This means the Minnesota Timberwolves will have a first round pick in this year’s allegedly loaded NBA draft. Acquiring Utah’s pick closes the books on the Al Jefferson trade from before last season. We basically ended up receiving movable parts, draft picks we could sell to pay off Kurt […]
