The Wolves need a traditional-sized shooting guard. Here are the top ones in the draft:

Victor Oladipo

Indiana, 6-4¼, age 20

Draft range: Top 5

Comment: Freakishly athletic, great motor and defender, but will he shoot and score well enough to become a big star?

Ben McLemore

Kansas, 6-4¾, age 20

Draft range: Top 5

Comment: Fluid athlete and effortless three-point shooter who has been compared to longtime NBA sharpshooter Ray Allen, but can he assert himself enough to reach All-Star status?

C.J. McCollum

Lehigh, 6-3¼, age 21

Draft range: 6 through 12

Comment: Explosive scorer with great shooting range, but perhaps more a scoring point guard than full-time shooting guard. Is he, dare we ask, the next Steph Curry?

Kentavious Caldwell-Pope

Georgia, 6-5½, age 20

Draft range: 9 through 15

Comment: Prototypical-sized shooting guard who has a quick shot with deep range and also can and will defend. He has been a fast riser up draft boards, probably all the way to No. 9.
