2011 NBA Mock Draft: Minnesota Timberwolves Select Nolan Smith
With the 20th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the Minnesota Timberwolves will select Nolan Smith.
Smith is the rare prospect who actually spent four years in school. He won a lot of games for Duke and that mentality might be able to help turn a team like Minnesota around.
Smith has incredible athleticism that allows him to drive by defenders with a dribble and quick steps. He has a streaky jump shot, pure from mid range. He also is a player who can come in and defend players immediately during his rookie season.
Smith has had experiences in his career including guarding players from Greivis Vasquez to Reggie Jackson. At the NBA level, he will be more accustomed to the level of play than many of the younger players coming out of school.
The Timberwolves need to improve their guard play and Smith could be the answer at shooting guard for next season and beyond.
