Jones and top draft pick Karl-Anthony Towns were introduced to fans and reporters on Friday. They were paraded through the downtown Minneapolis skyway, then held their first press conference as the newest members of the Timberwolves.

The Wolves say they have been flooded with emails and phone calls from fans interested in purchasing a "membership." The team says there has been overwhelming demand for those memberships since last night's draft that netted them the No. 1 overall pick in Towns and Minnesota's top high school basketball player in years in Jones.

Nearly 8,000 fans attended a special Timberwolves Draft Party at Target Center on Thursday, night and not a single one left disappointed about who the Wolves drafted.

Fans who attend the open house will have priority access to view the best available seats and secure their locations for 2015-16 Timberwolves games.

The event starts on Saturday at 3 p.m.
