MINNEAPOLIS — Minnesota assistant general manager Tony Ronzone says the Timberwolves are leaning toward keeping the second overall pick in this month's NBA draft.
Ronzone spoke Friday after working out several fringe free agents at Target Center. With Ricky Rubio signing a contract earlier this week to come to Minnesota next season, Ronzone was asked if the Wolves were going to hold onto the No. 2 pick.
Ronzone said "Right now we're keeping two."
He said the Wolves like their options at No. 2, even though the youngest team in the league needs veteran leadership on its roster. He also said "that's where we are today," leaving open the possibility that they could trade the pick if the right offer came along.
