The Minnesota Timberwolves will have the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Minnesota (who went 19-45 this season) entered with the third-best odds, but the ping-pong balls bounced their way in Thursday night’s NBA Draft Lottery.

The Timberwolves were followed by the Golden State Warriors (had the best odds for the No. 1 pick), Charlotte Hornets (eighth-best odds for the No. 1 pick), and Chicago Bulls (seventh-best odds for the No. 1 pick) in the top four picks.

Here’s the full draft lottery order:

So, the Timberwolves will have a chance to add an exciting talent to put around D’Angelo Russell and Karl-Anthony Towns. Georgia shooting guard Anthony Edwards, point guard LaMelo Ball (who’s been playing for the Illawarra Hawks in the Australian National Basketball League), and Memphis center James Wiseman have been expected to be in consideration for the No. 1 overall pick. If Minnesota keeps the pick, Edwards currently lines up as the most likely fit with their roster construction.

And the Warriors (15-50) have a chance to be great again in the 2020-2021 season, with Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, Andrew Wiggins, and the prospect they add (or trade they make) with the No. 2 overall pick. Wiseman makes a lot of sense for Golden State at No. 2.

It should be a very interesting draft, with every team’s big board likely looking quite different; there’s no clear-cut No. 1 prospect. Additionally, the pandemic, to go with the absence of March Madness, will make scouting prospects more of a challenge than usual for NBA organizations.

The 2020 NBA Draft is currently scheduled for Oct. 16.
