The ping-pong balls bounced the Minnesota Timberwolves way, they now have the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Now what?

Do they take Anthony Edwards or LaMelo Ball, seemingly the consensus top two picks? Do either of them fit next to D’Angelo Russell at the point, and with Karl-Anthony Towns at center? Just how bad would Minnesota’s defense be with Towns, Russell, and either Ball or Edwards on the court together?

Dan Feldman of NBC Sports joins me to discuss all that, plus how badly the Warriors may want to trade out of the No. 2 pick, what happens with Charlotte at No. 3, and down through the lottery, all the way to Boston at No. 14 (and the end of the Celtics run of using other team’s picks).
