Hard not to feel good for Flip, who lost his father last week. Was very emotional. "Maybe he had something to do with it."

Darren Wolfson

Okafor got his first D-1 offer from DePaul in 8th grade. Honed his great footwork in workouts w/ trainer Rick Lewis. Still his trainer now.

Jerry Zgoda

Flip is heading to Cleveland for his father's funeral but said team will have reps at Okafor's workout for NBA teams Thursday in California

Jerry Zgoda

Flip got choked up talking about his father's death last week and the help from above he and his team might have got from Walter Saunders

Jerry Zgoda

The only thing Flip said definitively is he's not trading pick, then he backtracked slightly with the "never say never" thing

Andy Greder

#Twolves president Flip Saunders said the top pick gives them "flexibility," but that they won't trade pick.

Andy Greder

#Twolves president Flip Saunders was obviously emotional after recent passing of his father Walter. "Gotta have luck."

John Meyer

HUGE moment for the Timberwolves franchise!

#Twolves fan Danny Schnyders of St. Paul thought they'd get 3 "given the history of the Wolves and history of Minnesota sports in general."

WOLVES WON THE LOTTERY! WOLVES WON THE LOTTERY! WOLVES WON THE LOTTERY! WOLVES WON THE LOTTERY! WOLVES WON THE LOTTERY! I told you!

John Meyer

Top 3 pick. Everything is GOOD.

Jerry Zgoda

Easiest spot in world for Flip is the second pick

Darren Wolfson

So, if the Knicks don't surpass the #Twolves in the final week, MN would've had those combinations and landed 4th (I believe)!

Jerry Zgoda

With Philly in top 3, Wolves could still end up with Okafor at 3

Andy Greder

Loud cheer at Target Center when Knicks got the fourth pick, not #Twolves. #NBADraftLottery

Darren Wolfson

The 1200 people who guaranteed me the Knicks would land No. 1, where are you??????????????????????????

Andy Greder

A few hundred #Twolves fans are watching the #NBADraftLottery at Target Center.

Jerry Zgoda

If OKC, Phx, Utah and Indiana don't come up in a row, bad news for Wolves and league's worst teams

Lottery announcement about to begin from NYC

Jon Krawczynski

I think tonight's the night.

Andy Greder

Three: The times since 1990 the NBA team with best lottery odds won #NBADraftLottery: Orlando '04, Cleveland '03, New Jersey '90. #Twolves?

John Meyer

Twins are tearing Liriano to pieces at PNC right now. 7-0 in the 2nd. Great inning!

Darren Wolfson

Caught up with free agent center @Cole Aldrich the other day -- he'd welcome a #Twolves offer. Have the story coming up on @KSTP at 6:45. #knicks

Jon Krawczynski

Conspiracy theorists: Several journalists in the room where the drawing is being held tonight, including @Zach Lowe. So calm down

Jon Krawczynski

Wonder if blowback from Patriots throwing Vikes, Panthers under the bus contributed to Kraft's change of stance today. Violated owner code

Jerry Zgoda

Here's my Wolves' draft predictions, depending on tonight: 1. Okafor. 2. Okafor. 3. Russell or Okafor. 4. Russell, Mudiay or Porzingis

Jerry Zgoda

Ok, like @Chad Ford, I played lotto game once today and here is what I got http://t.co/glSMEkY9jw

John Meyer

Rubio signs 4-year/$55M extension to stay in MN. He's skipping the European Championships to get healthy & says this: http://t.co/bj5jdNTaUZ

John Meyer

Wrote this in today's Canis draft lottery round table piece. Seems topical. Don't believe Ford. RR is going nowhere. http://t.co/0xxUIZLYQz

Jerry Zgoda

So there you have it...wouldn't surprise Wolves Nation one bit twitter.com/chadfordinside…

Darren Wolfson

If lost in translation before, spelled out better now: Rubio's camp isn't pushing for anything after the yr he had. Don't trust the report.

Jon Krawczynski

FWIW: just told Hoiberg and Wolves rumors are untrue. Flip and Fred are tight but Flip is coaching next year.

John Meyer

I don't believe Chad Ford.

Jerry Zgoda

If Wolves don't get lucky and you're bummed again, just remember this: the best player out of this draft could come at 3 or 4

Darren Wolfson

If Glen Taylor had gotten his way, #Twolves would have an 11% chance at #1 tonight. He was in favor of Lottery reform. Vote failed in Oct.

Darren Wolfson

4th-best storyline: NY wins 1, & we can moan about how for a while the #Twolves were in that 2nd spot, & would've had those combinations.

John Meyer

Please. Pretty please. With cheeries on top. http://t.co/ggmIKUNdNj

It's a big one, no doubt. No matter where they land, have to nail the pick. twitter.com/ImSoHungDu/sta…

Darren Wolfson

Bayno should land somewhere quickly. Good defensive coach/big man coach. twitter.com/KBergCBS/statu…

Darren Wolfson

They would've for Bledsoe last summer. Do I see it this summer if landing Russell? No. Maybe in a year or two. twitter.com/FischerPrice74…

Darren Wolfson

Best #Twolves storylines tomorrow: 1) Land 1 & have a choice to make, 2) Land 4, 3) Land 3 w/ Russell on board, bigs gone. Trade Rubio when?

Wolves will win the lottery tomorrow night. Wolves will win the lottery tomorrow night. Wolves will win the lottery tomorrow night.

All the best to ex-Gopher Rodney Williams. Still recovering after shin surgery. 3 month recovery. Finished season w/ OKC D-League. #gophers

Darren Wolfson

The #MNTwins were one of the 17 teams in the Dominican late last week to scout 20-year-old Cuban FA CF Eddy Julio Martinez (and others).

Jerry Zgoda

WIggins was only unanimous choice for All Rookie 1st team, getting chosen for it by all 130 voters. Mirotic got 128, Noel 125, Payton 121

Jerry Zgoda

All-Rookie first team: Wiggins, Mirotic, Noel, Payton, Clarkson. Second team: Smart, LaVine, Bogdanovic, Nurkic, Galloway

Jerry Zgoda

Rookie of the Year Andrew Wiggins makes NBA All-Rookie team of course and Zach LaVine makes All-Rookie second team

Andy Greder

#Twolves rookie Zach LaVine named to the NBA All-Rookie second team. He had 135 points, including 22 first-team votes.

Jerry Zgoda

Flip was in Cleveland early last week, attended Chicago draft combine Wed thru Fri a.m. and returned to Ohio. His father Walter died Tuesday

Andy Greder

#Twolves rookie Andrew Wiggins was the lone unanimous choice for the NBA All-Rookie team. He had all 130 votes.

Darren Wolfson

Glen Taylor now will rep #Twolves on TV tomorrow. Wife Becky not allowed to. Family banned w/ policy change by NBA, as @Minn_Sports 1st had.

Jerry Zgoda

Condolences to @Flip Saunders and his family on the passing of his father, who died in Cleveland last week

#Gophers FB already has 7 commitments from metro area kids. Impressive 9 months from Signing Day. I'll introduce you to each at 10:45 @KSTP.

Andy Greder

Wicked angle on Sydney Leroux's goal. She's like, "Thanks, teammate, I gots this." #USWNT

John Meyer

Wrote tons of words about how little I believe in Porzingis & then accidentally hit back & lost everything. Probably not the worst result.

John Meyer

Paul Molitor on Kennys Vargas' mentality before demotion to AAA: "Right now, it’s cluttered." Says its patient one at-bat, aggressive next.

Have said I like seeing LAC do well. But happier for future #NBA head coach J.B. Bickerstaff. Stock will only continue to rise w/ this run.

John Meyer

Game. Set. Match. Rockets advance.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins manager Paul Molitor said Eduardo Nunez is going to be activated for Pittsburgh series and Kennys Vargas is going to Class-AAA.
