If high-level prospects like Sekou Doumboya, Gonzaga's Brandon Clarke, Washington Washington PJ, before Minnesota Timberwolves were picked, they could look back in the draft.

There are slated with Minnesota Timberwolves to the No option. 11 in the next week's NBA Draft 2019, which is one of the recent unpredictable drafts.

Unfortunately, the Wolves might come out on expectations that would fill the needs of staff and would be significant day contributors. There are three such prospects forward by French Sekou Doumbouya, Gonzaga's senior power forward Brandon Clarke and sophomore forward P.J. Washington from Kentucky.

Doumbouya is the youngest prospect in the 2019 NBA Draft and may be the best player in the class.

At 6-foot-9 and 230 pounds, he has a similarity with Giannis Antetokounmpo and Pascal Siakam at this stage of his career, but Sekou is more involved than either young star entering the draft. Athletics is opening eyes to the French, authoritative finishing ability, a fluid jumper that will respect it at the next level, and the potential to be a super versatile player on both sides.

While he does not have a 3-point shot, Clarke would be a great addition to the Wolves. He is a knife in the defense of the Swiss Army and would have required much needed defense flexibility with a team struggling on the defensive end of last season.

Clarke can defend each of the five jobs, he is a great barrister (3.1 block per game in season 2018-19), has incredible lateral fitness, is a strong refuge, and is more difficult t nor any other person on the court. Because of his work ethic, it is surprising that he would not develop effective 3-point shooting during his career

Washington projects have become an effective offensive player as a small ball 4 in the NBA. P.J showed improvements as a shooter and as a defender during his sophomore campaign for Kentucky John Calipari squad.

It scored 15.2 points per game and shot 42.3 percent from over the arcade last season for the Wildcats, which improved significantly from an average of 10.8 points per game and 23.8 percent on 3-3 attempts. point as a fresh man. It stands 6-foot-8 with a 7-2-2 wing wing, which should help to enter run lanes and interfere with shot attempts at the next level.

However, if the three expectations are from the board at No. 11, Gersson should consider Rosas and the front office to trade back, rather than finding a prospect to meet the needs of a single team.

Firstly, look at the five players that Minnesota should focus on if they decide to trade back.
