Last night the NBA Draft Lottery was held, and the Minnesota Timberwolves drew the big prize. The Wolves seem to be in a good position to get enough good players to start winning some ball games next season. They already have Andrew Wiggins and Ricky Rubio, so either Jahlil Okafor or Karl-Anthony Towns seem most likely to be drafted in this spot.

SB Nation’s Kevin O’Connor says that the Wolves should draft Towns. I couldn’t agree more, which means they’ll probably draft Okafor.

  • Caleb Swanigan was a big get for Purdue, but Mike DeCourcy says it doesn’t necessarily make them better:

    The oddity of Swanigan’s choice of Purdue is that it was based in part on the presence of 7-0 senior A.J. Hammons and 7-2 sophomore Isaac Haas, centers who guarantee Swanigan will be deployed at power forward during his time with the Boilers.

    But that means two things: Swanigan is going to have to defend mobile, perimeter-based 4-men such as Wisconsin’s Nigel Hayes, Iowa’s Jarrod Uthoff, Maryland’s Jake Layman and Indiana’s high-flying Troy Williams.

  • Stephen Colbert thinks Duke sucks too.

  • Kentucky and Wisconsin aren’t the only teams losing a lot of their talent this year, according to Bucky’s 5th Quarter.
