Timberwolves Select Dunn Thursday In NBA Draft
The Minnesota Timberwolves selected Providence guard Kris Dunn with the fifth pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, held Thursday night in New Jersey. The Wolves did not have a second-round pick in the draft.
Dunn is a 6'4" guard and is the only player in Providence history to register 1,000 points, 500 assists, 400 rebounds and 200 steals in a career. He averaged 16.4 points per game last season with the Friars.
The Philadelphia 76ers drafted Ben Simmons with the #1 overall pick, and Duke's Brandon Ingram was selected second by the Los Angeles Lakers.
