Wolves picks: Round 1, 18th overall (from Utah). Round 2, 58th (from Oklahoma City).

Top-rated prospects: PF Anthony Davis, Kentucky; PF Thomas Robinson, Kansas; SF Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Kentucky; SG Bradley Beal, Florida; C Andre Drummond, Connecticut; SF Harrison Barnes, North Carolina; SG Dion Waiters, Syracuse; SG Jeremy Lamb, Connecticut; PG Damian Lillard, Weber State.

Top-rated Minnesotans: Iowa State PF Royce White (Minneapolis) and Wisconsin PG Jordan Taylor (Bloomington). White is expected to be drafted in the mid- to late first round while Taylor is a possible second-round pick.

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.
