The Minnesota Timberwolves selected UCLA guard Zach LaVine with the No. 13 pick in the 2014 NBA Draft.

LaVine is one of the biggest leapers in this draft and he was a good 3-point shooter in his freshman season at UCLA. He can play both guard positions and should give some nice length in the backcourt with Ricky Rubio. The Wolves are beginning their transition period as they're expected to trade Kevin Love this offseason instead of losing him. LaVine gives the fan base and the team an exciting young player to watch grow.

CBSSports.com's Matt Moore likes LaVine for the Wolves.

The 6-5, 180-pound LaVine averaged 9.4 points and 2.5 rebounds in 24 minutes per game in his lone season with UCLA, which finished 28-9 and lost to Florida in the Sweet 16.
