Taquan Dean Workout Interview
2006 Wolves Draft Central
timberwolves.com: How have workouts gone for you so far?
Taquan Dean: Good, it’s good to see the different styles going into each workout. This one was, by far, one of the toughest. Kevin Garnett needs a shooter, and I said I can do it, but at the same time, I came in here trying to get better.
timberwolves.com: Was it nice for you to see a familiar face (former Louisville assistant coach and current Wolves assistant coach Vince Taylor) while you worked out here?
Taquan Dean: I felt more comfortable coming in here, knowing that I’d been with him for three years. It was good to come into this atmosphere, but at the same time I wanted to prove what I could do.
timberwolves.com: Last year your Louisville teammate Francisco Garcia was a first round pick, have you sought him out for advice as you go through the draft process?
Taquan Dean: Definitely, actually, I went through it with him last year, just training and stuff like that. It’s a tough process, there’s a lot of players out there, you just have to be in the right spot at the right time.
