Author: Joe Gabriele

The first two Draft prospects featured on were unknown commodities to casual basketball fans. James Wiseman’s college career was limited to 70 minutes and, unless you stream the Israeli Basketball Premier League, you probably haven’t seen many of Deni Avdija’s performances.

Today’s prospect is different.

In this latest version, the Timberwolves tried to trade the No. 1 pick to three teams, but nothing came to fruition. The Warriors, again, entertained deals for the No. 2 pick. Nothing.
