(Sports Network) - The Minnesota Timberwolves had to feel gutted on Thursday
In desperate need of a shooting guard, the T'wolves were set on Kentavious
Caldwell-Pope from Georgia. He went just before the Wolves were on the clock
to the Detroit Pistons, so it was back to the drawing board.
They took Trey Burke in what appeared to be another ill-conceived attempt to
add every male point guard on earth to their roster, but it was a trade. They
sent Burke to Utah for two picks.
The first turned into Shabazz Muhammad, the most polarizing pick in this
draft. During the season, he was thought to be a lottery pick. After a few
shaky workouts and getting caught in a big old whopper about his age, Muhammad
He can score, that's for sure, but Minny didn't get the sharp-shooting two
guard they wanted. For that reason, the Wolves' draft was a little
disappointing. However, if Muhammad plays like the lottery pick people thought
he might be, Minnesota is in great shape. Potentially, he could be the steal
of this draft.
Dieng is a stud defensive center in the making. But, at 23, he could be a
little more polished offensively.
Brown is ... wait for it ... a point guard!
Dubljevic probably won't play a game in a Timberwolves jersey.
