MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves have kicked off their annual pre-draft summit, an event that hosts executives from across the NBA to watch workouts of draft prospects.
The two-day event started on Tuesday night with two workouts of players that are projected to be taken in the second round or have a chance to sign as undrafted free agents next month. Wisconsin forward Jared Berggren, a native of Princeton, Minn., was among the players to workout on Tuesday night. He says it would be a dream come true to be drafted by his home state Timberwolves.
Michigan State’s Derrick Nix, Florida’s Kenny Boynton and USC’s DeWayne Dedmon also worked out.
The summit will conclude on Wednesday with two more workouts. Minnesota’s Rodney Williams is scheduled to attend.
