Minnesota Timberwolves rookie guard Jarrett Culver isn't wasting time getting ready for the 2019-20 NBA season.

According to Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports, Culver "demanded" that his agents find him a gym for a post-draft workout after the T-Wolves acquired the sixth overall pick from the Phoenix Suns:

Great nugget for @YahooSports NBA Draft show: Jarrett Culver demanded that his agents find a gym for him to workout after the draft. (Which will be like midnight). His reps told me they have one reserved. @TexasTechMBB coach Chris Beard: "The game consumes him."

Culver wasn't a highly touted prospect coming out of Coronado High School in Lubbock, Texas. The 3-star recruit was ranked 312th in 247Sports' Class of 2017 rankings and wasn't even listed as a top-20 prospect in his state.

However, Culver worked his way to the pinnacle of NCAA Division I basketball in just two years, leading the Texas Tech Red Raiders to the national championship game before they fell 85-77 to Virginia in overtime.

He was an excellent two-way player at Texas Tech and has drawn multiple comparisons to four-time All-Star and four-time NBA All-Defensive Team member Jimmy Butler, including one from Bleacher Report's Jonathan Wasserman.

Butler has earned a reputation for being one of the game's hardest workers, and Culver is on his way there too if Thamel's report is any indication.
