Minnesota Timberwolves Win NBA Draft Lottery

The Minnesota Timberwolves got the number one pick this time even though the NBA draft was delayed three months it was worth the wait

The lottery was conducted virtually because of the pandemic, with NBA officials doing the actual draw in Secaucus, New Jersey. The Timberwolves won the lottery Thursday night, giving them the No. 1 pick.

Golden State Warriors holds the No. 2 selection and Charlotte Hornets has the No. 3 choice while Chicago Bulls will pick fourth, with both teams bucking some odds to move into the upper echelon.

It will be Minnesota’s first time holding the No. 1 pick since 2015, when it took center Karl-Anthony Towns out of Kentucky.

Timberwolves team president Gersson Rosas said “we know with the No. 1 pick we have the opportunity to draft an impact player who could immediately complement our young, strong core.”

The Bulls moved up to the fourth from the seventh spot, where they’ve picked from the last three years. And their fans could not hold back celebrating for their new spot.
