The Minnesota Timberwolves picked Anthony Edwards as the No. 1 pick in the North American professional basketball league NBA’s draft. The Shooting Guard had played his only college season for the University of Georgia at Atlanta and was named Freshman of the Year in the Southeastern Conference with a points average of 19.1.
Edwards was one of the favorites for the first pick, but James Wiseman was the top seed. The 19-year-old center goes to the Golden State Warriors as number two, while number three became LaMelo Ball, the younger brother of Lonzo Ball (New Orleans Pelicans), signed by the Charlotte Hornets.
The Frenchman Killian Hayes was also among the top 10 in the draft. The 19-year-old was drawn by the Detroit Pistons in seventh place. Hayes, who was born in the USA, played for ratiopharm Ulm last season. He renounced the BBL final tournament with a view to the draft.
