The basketball “gods” went with the Minnesota Timberwolves in the draft lottery as they secured the No.1 pick of the 2020 NBA Draft.

D’Angelo Russell, who represented the Wolves in the lottery, expressed his excitement on what GM Gersson Rosas could make of this pick to build upon the 2020-21 season.

“I’m glad I could represent for the state of Minnesota at the draft lottery the same way we plan to show out for our fans when we get back on the court,” Russell said, per NBA.com.

“The number one pick is exciting to have, it makes me think back to when Karl and I got drafted 1,2 in the 2015 draft. There’s so much buzz and energy during the draft as a player and I really look forward to seeing what Gersson and the front office will do to build upon our 2020-21 roster with this pick. I know we’re ready to compete and I can’t wait to see who joins us next.” 

The Timberwolves are consisted of mostly young prospects with Towns and Russell being the two main “building blocks” of their roster.
