Timberwolves president hints at unclear options at the top of the 2020 NBA Draft
Barring any offseason or draft night trades, the Minnesota Timberwolves are set with the No.1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
However, it seems that the ball club hasn’t decided exactly who would they select with the first pick, according to ESPN.
“There’s no guy that has separated himself from the pack from public or external view,” stated Timberwolves president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas. “But I’m very confident that as we go through this process, the talent will rise to the top and we’ll be confident about identifying one guy as the best guy, the best talented player with the most upside and most ability for our organization.
The Timberwolves have often been linked to both Anthony Edwards from the University of Georgia and LaMelo Ball, younger brother of Lonzo Ball.
It’s often normal for a team to create a bit of murkiness ahead of the draft, as they maintain steadiness in not revealing their hand so early. Another answer as to why Rosas and the Wolves aren’t certain as to which player they’ll select with the pick is because they reportedly don’t intend on keeping it.
After acquiring D’Angelo Russell last season, Minnesota has been rumored to be in “win-now” mode, making both stars the respected faces of the franchise while building around them with other legitimate talent. With that in mind, it has been said that moving the No.1 pick will be heavy on the team’s agenda going into draft night.
Rosas and the Timberwolves may even look to trade down in the draft in order to acquire multiple picks to ship off for a proven talent.
