Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

Draft prospects arrive at Target Center Monday morning for four days of workouts that will attract scouts from many other NBA teams.

The prospects participating this week are deemed mid-to-late first round and possible second-round draft picks.

Prospects for the Wolves first of three first-round picks -- the fourth pick overall as it stands right now -- likely will work out for the team individually as the June 24 draft approaches. That list includes such players as Kentucky center DeMarcus Cousins, Syracuse small forward Wes Johnson, Wake Forest small forward Al-Farouq Aminu and possibly Georgai Tech forward Derrick Favors and Ohio State guard Evan Turner .

Monday morning's tentative list of participating players include South Florida guard Dominque Jones, Georgia Tech forward Gani Lawai, Mississippi guard Terrico White, Nevada guard Amon Johnson, Xavier guard Jordan Crawford and Oklahoma forward Tiny Gallon.

The afternoon session is expected to include West Virginia forward Devin Ebanks, Kansas guard Sherron Collins, New Mexico guard Darington Hobson, Tulsa center Jerome Jordan, UTEP forward Derrick Caracter and Maryland guard Greivis Vasquez.

The Wolves also own the 16th and 23rd picks in the first round.

Workout sessions are closed to the public and the media.
