2020 NBA Draft: Edwards, Wiseman go 1-2

GEORGIA guard Anthony Edwards is headed to the Minnesota Timberwolves as the first pick in the 2020 NBA Draft.

Edwards, who turned 19 in August, is slotted to receive a four-year contract worth $44.2 million under terms of the existing collective bargaining agreement.

It was the 11th consecutive draft in which the top player was a one-and-done at the college level.

Another college freshman, Memphis 7-footer James Wiseman, was selected No. 2 by the Golden State Warriors. Wiseman played only three games for the Tigers before an NCAA suspension directed him to the NBA.

Golden State reached the NBA Finals five years in a row before leading the league in losses last season. The selection came on the same day the Warriors learned shooting guard Klay Thompson, who missed last season with a torn left anterior cruciate ligament, hurt his right leg in a pickup game.

Edwards joins 2015 No. 1 pick Karl-Anthony Towns with the Timberwolves, who had 19 wins in 2019-2020. He averaged 19.1 points per game at Georgia.

Point guard LaMelo Ball, the 6-7 younger brother of New Orleans Pelicans point guard Lonzo Ball, was picked third by the Charlotte Hornets. Lonzo Ball was the No. 2 pick (Los Angeles Lakers) in the 2017 NBA Draft.

At No. 4, the Chicago Bulls surprised with the Florida State small forward Patrick Williams, the Atlantic Coast Conference Sixth Man of the Year last season. Williams, 19, is one of the youngest players in the draft. — Reuters
