If the NBA's Draft Lottery played out true, the Timberwolves would have landed the second overall pick.
However, they will pick fourth after the 76ers and Wizards leapfrogged them in the draft order.
Minnesota would have likely taken Ohio State's Evan Turner with the No. 2 pick, but ESPN's Chad Ford writes that general manager David Kahn might still try to get Turner.
"But it's also possible Minnesota GM David Kahn will be looking to trade up to No. 2 in an effort to still select Turner, who the team is very high on," Ford wrote on Wednesday.
