MINNEAPOLIS -- The Timberwolves have sold their second 2nd-round pick (No. 44 overall) to the Brooklyn Nets.
With that pick, Minnesota selected Oklahoma State shooting guard Markel Brown for the Nets.
The Wolves selected UCLA PG Zach LaVine at No. 13 in the first round. They selected Michigan's Glenn Robinson III with pick No. 40, their first pick in the second round.
President of Basketball Operations Flip Saunders said Thursday the Wolves likely would move a pick, because they could be up against the roster maximum.
Wolves have sold that pick to Brooklyn, yes. They want roster flexibility going forward so weren't going to use 3 2nd rounders.— Jon Krawczynski (@APkrawczynski) June 27, 2014
