The Minnesota Timberwolves will have the No. 20 overall pick in June's NBA Draft as part of the trade that sent Al Jefferson to the Utah Jazz.
The slotting was determined when Memphis, which owed the pick to Utah, lost a tiebreaker to New Orleans. Both teams finished 46-36.
The slot of the Wolves' own first-round pick will be determined in the NBA Draft Lottery on May 17. A league-worst 17-65 record means they have a 25% chance of receiving the No. 1 overall selection.
The Wolves sent their second-round pick (No. 31 overall) to Miami in the Michael Beasley deal.
