Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

And yet another latest NBA mock draft has the Wolves taking ...

Sorry for the tease. Maybe they'll make a Twitter feed someday called "RandBall spoilers," much like the excellent feed devoted to Huffington Post spoilers.

In any event, Chad Ford has Mock Draft 4.0 out, and because we're obsessed with the NBA draft, here is what he has for the Timberwolves with the No. 9 pick (Insider required):

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope
Minnesota Timberwolves
COLLEGE: Georgia
AGE: 20
HT: 6-6
WT: 204
POS: SG

Analysis: New Timberwolves GM Flip Saunders has made no secret of his desire to acquire a shooter on the wing. He already has auditioned several in Minnesota (Caldwell-Pope, Allen Crabbe and Tim Hardaway Jr. worked out for him Thursday) and traveled to Vegas to see Russian Sergey Karasev Friday. I think Caldwell-Pope might have the most upside of any shooter left on the board. I'm hearing the Wolves agree.

On the plus side, Caldwell-Pope is a big shooting guard who made 84 threes last season and who improved quite a bit from his freshman to sophomore seasons. On the down side, he could still be somewhat of a project.

But the Wolves absolutely need a good shooting guard with size. If they like him and he's there, we have no problem at all with that being the pick.
