MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have taken UCLA guard Zach LaVine with the 13th overall pick in the first round.
The 6-foot-6 LaVine averaged 9.4 points and shot 37.5 percent from 3-point range as a freshman for the Bruins last season. He is considered one of the most athletic players in the draft, and the Timberwolves are in the market for a dynamic perimeter player to run the fast break with Ricky Rubio.
LaVine averaged under 25 minutes per game for the Bruins last season. But the Wolves believe the 19-year-old has a lot of room to grow and can develop into a playmaker on the wing.
The Timberwolves were also in conversations with several teams about trading All-Star forward Kevin Love.
