Minnesota to pick first in draft – Fil Info – NBA

The Minnesota Timberwolves will first choose the player of their choice from among the future stars of the NBA who make up the 2020 vintage of the Draft, followed by the Golden State Warriors and the Charlotte Hornets, according to the draw made on Thursday. While the 4th day of the play-offs took place at Disney World (Florida), a little attention was paid to the 14 teams not concerned by these games since the lottery of the Draft consisted of determining the order of passage of each among them to select the young talents destined to strengthen them from next season. Thus, on October 16, it will be the Timberwolves who will have this privilege. Second to last in the Western Conference standings, they had a 14% chance of securing that first place, the same percentage as the Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. “It’s super exciting,” said Minnesota playmaker D’Angelo Russell. Its leaders will still have to make a good choice, as in 2015, when they enlisted the pivot Karl-Anthony Towns. The Warriors, finalists in the last five seasons (three coronations in 2015, 2017, 2018) obtained the second choice after a disastrous season during which they finished last in the West, weighed down by the serious injuries of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson and the departure of Kevin Durant. The Hornets, owned by Michael Jordan, will choose third, followed by the Chicago Bulls (4th), Cleveland Cavaliers (5th), Atlanta Hawks (6th), Detroit Pistons (7th), New York Knicks (8th), Washington Wizards ( 9th), Phoenix Suns (10th), San Antonio Spurs (11th), Sacramento Kings (12th), New Orleans Pelicans (13th) and Boston Celtics (14th). Ray players, three compete to be N.1: point guard LaMelo Ball, brother of current point guard of the New Orleans Pelicans Lonzo Ball, pivot James Wiseman and fullback Anthony Edwards. French leader Killian Hayes has a good chance of being in the top ten, leader Theo Maledon and winger Killian Tillie are hoping to be caught in the first round.
