NBA Draft: Where will Chet Holmgren land?
Chet Holmgren has a chance to become the highest-selected Minnesota-raised player in the NBA Draft since Kevin McHale.
What's happening: The Minneapolis native is a consensus top-four pick in mock drafts, with a few experts predicting he will be the first player selected.
Catch up quick: McHale was drafted third in 1980 by the Boston Celtics.
- If Holmgren goes first — to Orlando — he would be paired with his former Minnehaha Academy teammate, Jalen Suggs.
- If Orlando passes, Oklahoma City is likely to nab the smooth, shot-blocking big man.
Two other Minnesotans — David Roddy and Kendall Brown — are also expected to be drafted tonight, according to the Star Tribune.
What's up with the Wolves: The Wolves are scheduled to pick 19th.
- Two players to watch: Kentucky guard TyTy Washington Jr. and Santa Clara guard Jalen Williams.
