The Minnesota Timberwolves have their first-round pick in the fold.
On Friday, the Wolves signed 6-foot-5 guard Wendell Moore Jr., who was taken with the No. 26 overall pick. Minnesota dealt its other first rounder, center Walker Kessler, to Utah as part of the package for Rudy Gobert.
Moore played three years at Duke, increasing his scoring, rebounding, assists and steals averages each year.
As a junior in 2021-22 he averaged 13.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.4 assists and 1.4 steals over 33.9 minutes while playing 39 games, all starts.
Moore was named the Julius Erving Award winner, given to the nation’s top small forward, to the ACC All-Defensive team and second-team All-ACC.
Moore makes his pro debut Friday night at the Las Vegas Summer League.
