The NBA Draft lottery is an important day for many of the NBA’s bottom-feeders. And even as playoff games commence in the Orlando bubble, the upcoming draft is on the minds of many in the community.
The Timberwolves were lucky enough to win tonight’s lottery, and it could have huge implications on the trajectory of their franchise.

While this year’s draft is full of amazing talent, there is not a consensus number one pick this year. Between LaMelo Ball, James Wiseman, and Anthony Edwards, there is much debate about who has the higher ceiling.
For the Wolves, in particular, it is important that they make the right decision. With Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell on the squad, they could become a serious player in the West if they pick the right prospect.
