Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
The Minnesota Timberwolves finished the season 31-51, which was bad enough for the 9th-worst record in the NBA. As such, they have the #9 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft.
The Wolves do have a small chance of winning the NBA lottery and getting the first overall selection, however. A very small chance. A 1.7% chance. But a chance nonetheless.
The Wolves also own the Memphis Grizzlies' first round selection. Because the Clippers & Grizzlies both finished the season 56-26 they 'tied' for the 25th overall selection. The tie was broken by a coin flip that the Grizzlies (Wolves) lost and thus, the Clippers get the 25th pick and the Wolves get the 26th overall pick.
The Wolves also own two picks in the Draft's second round. Neither of which is their own. Minnesota will select with Brooklyn's 52nd overall pick and Oklahoma City's 58th overall pick.
So, will the Wolves draft a rookie that will be on the roster in 2013-14? Or will they instead look to trade the majority of these picks to get established, veteran players? We'll wait and see. That's all for now, thanks for reading HOWL and GO WOLVES!
