Minnesota Timberwolves 2014 Draft Report Card

By Jim Brighters, NBA Editor

Additions: Zach LaVine (13)

Glenn Robinson III (40)

Alessandro Gentile (53)

(SportsNetwork.com) - LaVine's intro to the Minnesota Timberwolves wasn't the warming moment Flip Saunders probably wanted.

Caught on camera uttering a profanity after his name was announced, LaVine backtracked and admitted it wasn't wise, but it wasn't said out of displeasure in going to the T-wolves.

LaVine is perhaps the most versatile player in the draft. He can play all three perimeter positions and flat-out shoot the ball. LaVine's upside is enormous.

Robinson has pedigree, but why hasn't he turned into a better prospect? He had all of the talent in the world two years ago with Michigan, but didn't get better.

Gentile may not see an NBA floor. He can score, but he's a little ... hot- headed.

Minnesota's offseason all revolves around Kevin Love. Will the Timberwolves trade him, and if so, when? The haul should be massive for a young All-NBA star. LaVine can fit into the plan if Love stays or goes.

Grade: B
