The 2009-10 Minnesota Timberwolves season was the 21st season of the franchise in the National Basketball Association.[1]

Key dates

Summary

NBA Draft 2009

The Timberwolves, thanks to various trades, had six picks in the 2009 draft. They had four first-round picks at the #5, #6, #18, and #28 slots, as well as the #45 and #47 picks in the second.

Their first pick was Spanish teenage point guard sensation Ricky Rubio, followed immediately by another point guard, Syracuse sophomore Jonny Flynn. At #18, they picked yet another point guard, North Carolina's Ty Lawson. Their final first-rounder was Lawson's backcourt mate, shooting guard Wayne Ellington.

In the second round, the Timberwolves selected a fourth point guard, Nick Calathes of Florida. The team's final selection was Henk Norel, a Dutch power forward who was Rubio's teammate at Spanish club power Joventut Badalona.

The glut of point guards was partially resolved when the Timberwolves traded the rights to Lawson to the Denver Nuggets and Calathes to the Dallas Mavericks. In any event, Calathes was not expected to join the NBA in the near future, as he has signed a multimillion-dollar contract with Panathinaikos, one of the strongest clubs in his ancestral home of Greece.
