On a night when the top end of the NBA draft held more than a a few surprises, it should come as no surprise that the Timberwolves spent much of Thursday's early evening drafting then dealing. The result: With the 14th overall pick – a pick acquired from Utah in the trade – the Wolves got Shabazz Muhammad, the high-scoring (and somewhat controversial) guard/forward from UCLA. They also received Gorgui Dieng, a center from Louisville, who was taken with the 21st pick. After the Detroit Pistons took Kentavious Caldwell-Pope – the shooting guard the Wolves had targeted – just ahead of them, the Wolves took Michigan's Trey Burke with the No. 9 pick then promptly worked out the deal.
