MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - No such luck for the Minnesota Timberwolves in the NBA draft lottery. Again.
The Timberwolves received the 13th pick in the lottery on Tuesday night, which is exactly where they were slotted heading into the annual drawing. The Timberwolves have never improved their draft position in franchise history.
They had a 2.18 percent chance of moving into the top three selections, but once again couldn't find any luck when they needed it most.
The Cleveland Cavaliers will pick first, followed by Milwaukee and Philadelphia.
Now that the lottery is over, the Timberwolves are expected to begin a hard search for a new coach. They could also start receiving trade offers for Kevin Love, who can opt out of his contract after next season.
