WOLVES PICKS

 

FIRST ROUND

No. 14 overall *

Shabazz Muhammad

Guard/forward, UCLA

Size: 6-6, 225 pounds.

The skinny: The lefthander, in his only season with the Bruins, led the team in scoring at 17.9 points per game, taking first-team All-Pac-12 Conference honors in the process. Muhammad loves to get out on the break and finish at the hoop. But he is not efficient and needs work on his dribbling and defense.

Quote: “I definitely have a chip on my shoulder,” Shabazz said.

 

No. 21 overall *

Gorgui Dieng

Center, Louisville

Size: 6-11, 245 pounds.

The skinny: Answers a need as a player who can protect the basket. The native of Senegal was named Big East defensive player of the year. Dieng’s offensive game is still raw, given his relatively late introduction to the game.

Quote: “What I like about him is that he protects the rim,” Wolves President of Basketball Operations Flip Saunders said.

*Obtained in trade with the Utah Jazz in exchange for Wolves’ No. 9 pick, Trey Burke of Michigan.

 

SECOND ROUND

No. 52 overall

Lorenzo Brown

Guard, N.C. State

Size: 6-5, 186 pounds.

The skinny: Averaged 11.6 points over three seasons. A big point guard, Brown shot 42.9 percent from the field in his career, 30.5 percent on threes. Struggles at times to finish plays and needs to cut down on his turnovers.

 

No. 59 overall

Bojan Dubljevic

Forward, Valencia (Spain)

Size: 6-9, 235 pounds.

The skinny: Played three seasons of high-level basketball in Europe, and the native of Montenegro mostly likely will stay there in the near future. He averaged 12.2 points and 3.9 rebounds at Valencia last year.
