Wolves needs: A legitimately sized shooting guard or small forward -- Duke's Austin Rivers or Washington's Terrence Ross, if either falls that far -- who can handle the ball, make plays and score, or a shot-blocking forward/center (Syracuse center Fab Melo or North Carolina forward John Henson, if he falls) who will protect the rim.
Wolves draft party: Fans can gather to watch the draft at Hubert's in Target Center, starting at 6 p.m.
