The Minnesota Timberwolves selected Michigan point guard Trey Burke with the ninth overall pick in the first round of the NBA draft on Thursday night, then shipped him to the Utah Jazz for pick Nos. 14 and 21, according to a person with knowledge of the deal.
To no one’s surprise, the Minnesota Timberwolves were unlucky in the NBA lottery once again. The Wolves finished with the No. 9 pick in the league’s annual draft lottery on Tuesday night.
