The Minnesota Timberwolves have selected PF Aleksej Pokusevski with the No. 17 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.
The Minnesota Timberwolves drafted Pokusevski but he'll be traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder as part of a deal to acquire PG Ricky Rubio. The 18-year-old from Greece played for Olympiacos' 2nd division team and has been regarded as one of the most unique international prospects in the NBA Draft.
