T-wolves draft trade nets 7-1 Auburn center Walker Kessler

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Timberwolves added a potential rim protector to complement star Karl-Anthony Towns, acquiring 7-foot-1 Auburn center Walker Kessler in a draft pick swap that netted them an additional first-rounder that became Duke forward Wendell Moore Jr. on Thursday night.

In their first draft under new president of basketball operations Tim Connelly, the Timberwolves - coming off a 46-win season and just the second playoff appearance of the last 18 years - were active on the trade phones while taking advantage of some depth in the bottom third of the first round to pick up an extra prospect.

The Timberwolves sent the 19th pick plus a future second-rounder to the Grizzlies for the 22nd and 29th selections. Then they packaged No. 29 and two future second-rounders in a deal with Houston to move back up and get Moore at No. 26. The NBA finalized the trades early Friday.
