Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

The list of draft prospects -- mostly guys who will go undrafted or might slip into the second round -- for the Wolves' annual two-day camp here at Target Center this week is out.

Gophers forward Rodney Williams is there, in the Wednesday's group.

Princeton, Minn.'s own Jared Berggren -- by way of Madison and the University of Wisconsin -- will work out in one of Tuesday's two groups.

Other names: Baylor guard Pierre Jackson, Illinois guard Brandon Paul, Memphis swingman D.J. Stephens, French center Mouhammadou Jaiteh and Texas A&M guard Elston Turner Jr., whose dad could end back on Rick Adelman's coaching staff after a couple years away.

There's nobody whose names you are going to hear when the Wolves make their two first-round picks in June.

But just to cover all their bases for the draft's second round and summer-league rosters, the Wolves are bringing these guys in on Tuesday and Wednesday for annual workouts attended by scouts from just about every other NBA team:

Anthony Marshall, G UNLV
