Timberwolves' Keita Bates-Diop: Drafted by Timberwolves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bates-Diop was selected by the Timberwolves in the second round of the Thursday's draft.

Bates-Diop was considered a first-round talent by some evaluators but he was a late bloomer, with his first really impressive season coming as a senior last year. In 34 games for Ohio State last year Bates-Diop recorded and impressive 19.8 points and 8.7 rebounds per game. With Minnesota he'll look to work his way into the lineup as a backup small forward splitting minutes with Nemanja Bjelica behind Andrew Wiggins.

Timberwolves' Josh Okogie: Taken by Minnesota with 20th pick
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okogie (hip) was selected by the Timberwolves with the 20th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft.

Okogie is coming off a strong sophomore campaign at Georgia Tech where he averaged 18.2 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists across 36 minutes per game. At the very least, Okogie should be able to serve as a strong perimeter defender as rookie in the NBA given his athleticism and impressive 7-foot wingspan. His offensive game isn't as refined, but on a team with the likes of Karl-Anthony Towns and Jimmy Butler, the Timberwolves likely won't be asking much of Okogie on the offensive end this comingseason.

Timberwolves' Justin Patton: Will likely miss 'most of the fall'
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Patton (foot), according to coach Tom Thibodeau, will be out all summer while recovering from foot surgery and is likely to miss "most of the fall", Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic Minnesota reports.

As expected, Patton may not be healthy for training camp after undergoing surgery on his left foot -- the same foot he broke during a workout in early July of his rookie year. That surgery and the recovery that came with it forced him to spend the majority of the season in the G-League, and he only ended up appearing in one game at the NBA level, playing four minutes. Now, his development will be delayed once more. At the moment, it's tough to gauge if he'll play meaningful minutes for the Wolves next season, especially with Taj Gibson and Gorgui Dieng still in the fold to see reserve run behind starter Karl-Anthony Towns (35.6 minutes per game).
