The 2020 NBA Draft Lottery was a huge success for the Minnesota Timberwolves.
After a disappointing 2019-20 season, the T-Wolves won the No. 1 pick in Thursday night's lottery and have the chance to add a franchise-cornerstone player to their core of Karl-Anthony Towns and D'Angelo Russell.
One of the most intriguing teams entering the draft was the Golden State Warriors, who had the best odds to land the top pick and ended up getting No. 2 overall. Injuries ruined the Warriors' 2019-20 season as Stephen Curry missed most of the campaign and Klay Thompson didn't play at all. They also lost Kevin Durant in free agency last summer. But with Curry and Thompson coming back to a team that also includes Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins, the Warriors could be a legit contender again next season if they hit a home run with the No. 2 pick.
Another team to watch as the draft nears is the Boston Celtics. They are the only team with three first-round picks, but without a ton of minutes to give multiple rookies next season, it'll be interesting to see if Boston keeps all of these picks.
