The Minnesota Timberwolves will have quite a few things to look at before the 2012 NBA Draft happens next month. They'll go to the pre-draft combine in Chicago, they're hosting a big group workout this week and are sure to bring in plenty of other players for auditions before the big night.
According to the latest rumors reaching Charley Walters of the Pioneer Press, though, the Wolves might also be considering taking a European player with their first round pick.
Timberwolves President David Kahn, who oversees the draft and has the No. 18 overall pick next month, spent 11 days in Europe recently on a scouting mission. Don't be surprised if the Wolves' first-round pick on June 28 comes from overseas.
The updated NBA mock drafts seem to indicate that the Wolves have plenty of solid options on this side of the pond, but maybe Kahn was able to find something special abroad?
