A couple weeks ago, in anticipation of the NCAA Tournament, we scribbled some preliminary thoughts on NBA Draft prospects. Now that we’re into Sweet 16 territory, and we know a little more about where the Wolves may end up drafting, we thought it about that time to do another quick #lottobound rundown of our current thoughts on potential Wolves prospects we like.
I pass the baton to Andy G to kick this thing off.
That said, who is #1? My take is, if we somehow win the lottery I think it’s Nerlens Noel or Anthony Bennett. Gotta get the star power at the top of the draft.
If we don’t win the lotto and take Oladipo, we might be getting a better player than McLemore anyway. Victor O plays Jrue Holiday-style defense and seems to have the shooting mechanics to become a pretty reliable secondary scorer. It’d be incredible to watch a Rubio-Oladipo backcourt terrorize opposing guards defensively.
