With the Minnesota Timberwolves landing the no. 7 pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, Bleacher Report’s Jonathan Wasserman and SB Nation’s Ricky O’Donnel discussed on the "VSporto" podcast the best prospect available for the Wolves. They believe Florida State’s Jonathan Isaac is the best fit for this young team.

“It’s totally Isaac, they’ve got to go with Isaac.” O’Donnel said of the Wolves’ potential pick. “That is the perfect player between Andrew Wiggins and Karl Anthony Towns. It’s going to force Towns to play the 5 instead of the 4. Towns is obviously at center.

Isaac is such a good pick. I think people are going to see him as an upside guy because he’s 6-foot-10, he’s got a perimeter game, his offense is developing.”

O’Donnell added that Isaac could make an impact right away for the Wolves on the defensive end because of his rare combination of length and quickness. As for Isaac’s offense, the NBA scribe thinks it would take a few seasons for his offensive game to mature but he’s confident the Florida State product will be a solid offensive contributor at the NBA level.

All-in for Isaac?

Marc Beerman of the New York Post reported that the Timberwolves front office is considering the possibility of trading down from the 7th pick. Beerman added that a source close to the situation told him that Wolves head coach and president Tom Thibodeau will likely use the pick for a wing player rather than a big man, which is contrary to a number of mock drafts that pegged Isaac at no.


“With the seventh pick, the Timberwolves are leaning toward a wing player such as Monk over a big player. An NBA source said Tom Thibodeau, Minnesota’s coach and president, has considered trading down, too,” Beerman stated in his report.

P.J Tucker eyeing move to Twin City

After a playoff run with the Toronto Raptors, P.J Tucker is already planning to bolt out for a possible stint in Minnesota.

Darren Wolfson of 5 Eyewitness News disclosed on 1500 ESPN’s "The Scoop" podcast that the Timberwolves are very much on Tucker’s radar largely because of the team’s promising future.

Tucker, who averaged 7.7 points and 6.7 rebounds in 27 minutes per game last season, would provide the T-Wolves rugged perimeter defense and solid outside shooting from beyond the arc -- at a 40 percent clip last season. Moreover, the 32-year old Tucker is also known for being a vocal leader in the locker room – which is always good toward improving team chemistry.
