No. 45: Minnesota Drafts Paulao Prestes

After picking two small forwards and acquiring another via trade, the Timberwolves selected Paulao Prestes, a center from Brazil. Prestes is 6-foot-10 and 22 years old. Draft Express liked the pick, saying Prestes might be one of the draft's biggest sleepers:

We got a pick in the 2nd round. Paulao Prestes. Good pick by Pete Philo and Tony Ronzone. We called him one of the sleepers of the draft.
