The Minnesota Timberwolves will select No. 1 in the 2020 NBA Draft!

The Wolves will get their first top pick since selecting Karl-Anthony Towns first in the 2015 NBA Draft.

While this year's draft class isn't expected to be the strongest, there remains some top talent available, among them James Wiseman, Anthony Edwards and LaMelo Ball.

As one of the three worst teams in the NBA last season, the Wolves entered the draft lottery with a 14% chance of getting the No. 1 pick.

Their most likely landing spot was 6th, with a 26% chance entering the lottery.

The Wolves will also have the 17th pick in this year's draft as a result of the Brooklyn Nets making the 2020 postseason.

This year's NBA Draft takes place on Oct. 16.
