Lauri Markkanen a great fit for Minnesota

The 7-footer is an elite shooter who has a Dirk Nowitzki-type look to his game. He would fit well next to budding superstar Karl-Anthony Towns.

Knicks lose draft lottery tiebreaker to Wolves

If neither team lands in the top three of the NBA draft lottery, the Timberwolves will draft ahead of the Knicks as determined by tiebreaker.

Kevin Pelton ESPN Staff Writer 

The NBA will break ties for picks in the 2017 draft Tuesday at 3 p.m. Eastern with a random drawing televised on NBA TV. While the Minnesota Timberwolves and New York Knicks will split combinations in the May 16 draft lottery, the tiebreaker will determine where they pick if neither is drawn in the lottery's top three. Ties will also be broken between the Chicago Bulls and Portland Trail Blazers for 15th and 16th, the Indiana Pacers and Milwaukee Bucks for 17th and 18th, the Atlanta Hawks and Memphis Grizzlies (whose pick goes to Portland) for 19th and 20th and the Cleveland Cavaliers (to Portland), LA Clippers, Toronto Raptors and Utah Jazz for 23rd through 26th. The Raptors will get the better of the picks belonging to them and the Clippers, while the Orlando Magic get the weaker of the two.
