Draft lottery results: The Timberwolves won the lottery and hold the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

The 2020 NBA Draft Lottery will take place at 8:30 p.m. ET and air on ESPN on Thursday night. The 14 teams who will be in the field are a mix of those left out of the NBA bubble in Orlando and those sent home early. The format for the draft lottery is much different this year. Teams at the top have a more even shot at landing the first overall pick. Let’s take a look at the Minnesota Timberwolves odds to land the No. 1 pick. We’ll update this with results after the lottery, plus analysis on who the team should think of drafting.

Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Draft Lottery Odds, Results

The T-Wolves have a 14% chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft after finishing with the third-worst record in the NBA at 19-45 this season. The Timberwolves are +500 on DraftKings Sportsbook to win the No. 1 overall pick.

Who should the Timberwolves take with the No. 1 pick?

The most logical choice is probably Georgia G Anthony Edwards. Putting him in a backcourt with D’Angelo Russell seems like it could become very dangerous down the line. Obi Toppin is a favorite pick of mine, so he wouldn’t be a bad fit at PF next to Karl-Anthony Towns as well. The T-Wolves have a lot of options with the pick, so Minnesota is sitting easy heading into October.
