MINNEAPOLIS -- After taking guard Zach LaVine with their top overall draft pick, the Timberwolves followed up in the NBA's draft second round on Thursday by selecting Michigan's Glenn Robinson III with the No. 40 pick.
Robinson, son of former NBA star Glenn Robinson Jr., shot 52.2 percent and averaged 12 points across his two seasons with the Wolverines. Projected by several draft prognosticators as a potential first round pick, Robinson played a key role in Michigan's run to the NCAA championship game in 2013 and the Big Ten regular season title in 2014.

"With Burke taking his playmaking ability to the NBA, Robinson's role shifted considerably as evidenced by the same cuts, fast breaks, and put backs that helped him earn a spot on the All-Big Ten Freshman Team accounting for just 36.7% of his possessions, as had to create more of his offense for himself from the perimeter.
... Defensively, Robinson's physical tools give him plenty of promise at the next level, but doesn't always make the most of them, as he appears to lack a degree of toughness."
