Wolves draft night moves

 

FIRST ROUND

 

(No. 1 overall)

 

Karl-Anthony Towns C, Kentucky

 

Height: 6-11. Weight: 248

 

Age: 19.

 

One of the best defenders in the draft, Towns — according to College Basketball Reference’s defensive rating estimate — allowed fewer points per 100 possessions on plays he individually faced than any other college player. Perhaps not as polished offensively as Duke’s Jahlil Okafor, the draft’s No. 2 pick, Towns was efficient while playing on a team so deep that his minutes were limited. He averaged 10.3 points, 6.7 rebounds and 2.3 blocks while playing 21.1 minutes per game.

 

(No. 24 overall)

Tyus Jones G, Duke

 

Height: 6-1. Weight: 190

Age: 19

The former Apple Valley and Duke star was acquired in a trade with Cleveland. Averaged 33.9 minutes, 11.8 points, 5.6 assists and 1.5 steals as freshman at Duke.
