Mike Schmitz from Valley of the Suns has a great video here with info on Baylor’s Quincy Miller, whom Draft Express currently has going to the Timberwolves with the 18th pick in their most recent mock draft.
You can put me down for preferring that the Wolves pick a SF over a PG at this spot (previous mock drafts from DX had them going with Marquis Teague). Of course, Miller’s got some red flags, like having already had ACL surgery, and I’m definitely concerned about his jumpshot and his ability to body bigger players.
But I’m also encouraged by his 7’4″ wingspan, which could make him a defensive terror at the 3, and adding bulk shouldn’t be a tremendous concern at the NBA level. Look how skinny Kevin Durant was as a rookie. Not that he’s a tank now or anything, but he’s definitely put on some muscle and is starting to use it.
I also wouldn’t be surprised to see them try to move this pick in a package with players for some veteran help. With a young core of Rubio, Love, and Pekovic, the Wolves may only be a solid wing defender and scorer away from being a playoff lock next year.
