2. Minnesota Timberwolves

Coming in at No. 2, the Minnesota Timberwolves would make a lot of sense as a destination for LaMelo Ball. If the season ended today, the Wolves would hold the No. 3 overall pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Should they have the chance to draft him, it would be surprising to see them pass on him.

At this point in time, the T-Wolves have D’Angelo Russell and Jarrett Culver as their starting back-court. Culver could conceivably slide to small forward if Minnesota were to draft Ball.

Having a back-court of Russell and Ball would be intriguing. They would add much needed playmaking and more offensive firepower.

Minnesota may decide to pass on Ball due to their current roster situation. However, he would be a nice fit if they can make it work.
