He should be a nice fit alongside T-Wolves stars Karl-Anthony Towns and D'Angelo Russell.

"It's an indescribable feeling", Edwards said.

"Just going through this adversity made me stronger as a person", Wiseman told ESPN shortly after the pick. "It's beyond measure to be in this situation".

And it comes just five weeks before the 2020-21 campaign tips off on December 22. Thompson didnt play during the coronavirus-shortened season as he worked back from surgery for a torn ACL in his left knee.

LaMelo Ball, as expected, didn't have to wait long to hear his name called in the 2020 NBA Draft, with the Charlotte Hornets selecting him with the No. 3 overall pick. Despite taking an unusual path to the National Basketball Association, having played in Lithuania and Australia instead of college, Ball's playmaking ability as a 6-foot-7 guard enticed teams.

Wiseman averaged 34.2 points in three games as a freshman for the Tigers before a 12-game suspension by the NCAA because his family received money during the recruitment process.

The draft really got interesting at No. 4, where the Chicago Bulls surprisingly selected Florida State wing Patrick Williams.

The Pistons had started wheeling and dealing even before their No. 7 number came up, making a trade to acquire another first-round selection less than an hour before the draft began.
