Wolves slotted to pick 9th, 26th in first round of NBA Draft


The Timberwolves own two first round picks in the upcoming NBA Draft in June.

The first pick is slotted at No. 9 with the second set at No. 26, according to FOX Sports North.

There is a 1.7 percent chance the NBA draft lottery, which is set for May 21, could result in the Wolves winding up with the No. 1 overall pick, rather than No. 9.
