Timberwolves take Georgia Tech G Josh Okogie with 20th pick

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Timberwolves could have used their draft picks in deals to help clear space under the salary cap for potential free agent additions next month.

They needed some high-ceiling young players just as much.

Opting against any deals, the Timberwolves selected Georgia Tech guard Josh Okogie with the 20th overall pick in the first round of the NBA Draft on Thursday night, targeting a tough-minded player with defensive versatility as a primary asset.
