The Minnesota T-Wolves Can Finally Say "Victory Is Ours"

The Minnesota T-Wolves Can Finally Say “Victory Is Ours”

The Minnesota Timberwolves finally won something as they walked away with the No 1. overall draft pick in the NBA Draft Lottery.

The T-wolves will now turn its attention to determining who is the best player to draft that will fit in nicely with Karl Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russel. The third-best player on the team is Malik Beasley who averaged just under 18 points a game in the 2019-20 season.

Last year the T-wolves drafted forward Jarrett Culver with the sixth overall pick and year before they drafted guard Josh Okogie. Both players have significant upside but have not delivered night in and night out to this point in their young careers.

The 4 top contenders to go #1 are Georgia’s Anthony Edwards – a 6-foot-6 shooting guard who scored 19.1 points per game for the Bulldogs in the 2019-20 season. Then there’s Dayton’s forward Obi Toppin and Memphis’ forward James Wiseman who have #1 draft pick potential. But the most intriguing option at #1 is clearly LaMelo Ball, who averaged 19 points a game playing pro ball in Australia last year.

The T-wolves badly need perimeter shooting and that is something that they could get from Edwards or Ball. The T-Wolves should seriously consider Ball because he clearly has the most upside and star potential of any of the top players in this year’s draft.

Hopefully, the T-Wolves won’t make the mistake that the Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns made by allowing Luka Doncic to fall to the third spot. The point is LaMelo Ball has the most superstar potential, which is really what you should be rolling the dice on when you have the #1 overall draft pick.
