Wolves receive 13th pick in the NBA Draft Lottery


The Minnesota Timberwolves have the 13th pick in next month's NBA Draft.

That was determined by the NBA's Draft Lottery on Tuesday evening.

The Cleveland Cavaliers received the top pick in the lottery, it is the second straight year and the third time in the last four years the Cavaliers have won the draft lottery.

The chances were small the Wolves would move into the the top three.

The Wolves had just a 0.6 percent chance of getting the top pick in the draft lottery, that percentage increased to 2.2 percent to secure a top three pick.

After all it's the Wolves we're talking about. They have never moved up in the draft, according to FOX Sports Net. They have stayed in place eight times and on eight other occasions, the Wolves have dropped.

The top ten in the draft look like this.

  1. Cleveland Cavaliers
  2. Milwaukee Bucks
  3. Philadelphia 76ers
  4. Orlando Magic
  5. Utah Jazz
  6. Boston Celtics
  7. Los Angeles Lakers
  8. Sacramento Kings
  9. Charlotte Hornets
  10. Philadelphia 76ers

With the Lakers receiving the seventh pick and Boston with the sixth pick the Wolves will likely not be receiving a high draft pick in exchange for forward Kevin Love.

They may not have been making a move anyway, Wolves owner Glenn Taylor said, earlier this week, that Love will not be dealt prior to the draft.
