Wolves Head Into Draft Looking For Shooters
The Timberwolves were the worst team in the league in 3-point shooting last season and need a big guard to play alongside Ricky Rubio and knock down open jumpers.
The Wolves have two choices in the first round on Thursday night — No. 9 and No. 26.
Saunders has had discussions with several teams above the Timberwolves in hopes of moving up to get Indiana’s Victor Oladipo. If the Wolves can’t swing a deal, Georgia’s Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and Lehigh’s C.J. McCollum are two possibilities.
The Timberwolves could also consider Indiana big man Cody Zeller with their first first-round pick.
