MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have selected Michigan point guard Trey Burke with the ninth overall pick in the first round of the NBA draft.
With Ricky Rubio firmly entrenched as the starting point guard in Minnesota, Burke could be headed elsewhere in a trade. The Wolves made the pick after their coveted shooting guards - Victor Oladipo of Indiana and Ben McLemore of Kansas - went off the board ahead of them.
New team President Flip Saunders has made adding perimeter shooting his top priority for a team that was dead last in the NBA in 3-point shooting last season. The one thing he did say definitively was that they would not take a point guard.
The Timberwolves also have the 26th pick and two picks in the second round.
