It's not unusual to see GMs wary of gambling too much with the first overall pick of the Draft, especially when there is that much uncertainty around most prospects as it's happening with the class of the 2020 NBA Draft.
But, among all the doubts, questions, red-flags, and the lack of exposure most prospects got, one of the few players who looks like a 'can't-miss' kind of guy is Anthony Edwards, who was a lock to be the 1st overall pick before the lottery.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are entitled to that selection and there have been some questions about their need for another guard after trading for D'Angelo Russell, while others believe that they should still take him and just try to make things work.
2020 NBA Draft: Anthony Edwards Wants To Be Drafted By The Minnesota Timberwolves
And if you were to ask the Georgia product, he'd tell you that he's ready to ball out for whoever drafts him, and that he's not afraid of Minnesota's cold weather or the fact that he'd have to share touches with D-Lo on an ever-struggling team.
Edwards told The Undefeated that he doesn't care about the weather because he's not going to play basketball out in the open, which makes sense. Even so, whether the Timberwolves are completely sold on him or not is yet to be seen.
Anthony Edwards has impressive athleticism and a head-turning shot-making ability. He's also shown some flashes in the defensive end and has unlimited upside as a potential franchise player.
Then again, the Timberwolves could try and use their pick to trade down and land a bona fide player, especially amid all the rumors pointing that Devin Booker wants out of the Phoenix Suns and would love to join his friends Karl-Anthony Towns and D'Angelo Russell in Minnesota.
