2011 NBA Draft Results: How Derrick Williams Fits in with the Timberwolves
Tony Gutierrez

The Minnesota Timberwolves selected Derrick Williams, the Arizona forward, with the second overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.  

Minnesota is already packed at the forward spot with Kevin Love and Michael Beasley, but the addition of Williams brings in an explosive scorer and athlete to the mix.  

While Williams has star potential, he will have to learn on the fly while battling for playing time. The logjam at the forward spots is going to create a challenge for the Wolves next head coach, who at this time has yet to be named.  

Not to mention, Minnesota is already a young team and is in need of some veteran leadership.  

All reports at this time are that Minnesota plans on keeping Williams.

Sounds like this will be a challenging rookie season for Williams, but T-Wolves fans should be excited for this new collection of young talent.  

Let's take a closer look.
