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.

Johnson to work out for Wolves on Tuesday

Posted by: under Wolves draft news Updated: June 14, 2010 - 5:13 PM

  After a session with late first-rounders and second-round prospects, the Wolves' pre-draft workouts turn to the No. 4 pick on Tuesday when Syracuse forward Wesley Johnson -- a legitimate possibility for the Wolves' first selection -- arrives at Target Center.

Johnson, who averaged 16.5 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in his lone season with the Orangemen, has been projected by many NBA pundits as the Wolves' likely selection in the June 24 draft. The 6-foot-7 Texan, who turns 23 next month, will work out alone in front of Wolves coach Kurt Rambis, president of basketball operations David Kahn, and the team's basketball staff.
