The 2020 NBA Draft is coming up on Nov. 18, and the time is winding down to see who will be the coveted No. 1 pick.

With the NBA eliminating the “tanking” system and putting in the new system that gives the bottom three teams in the league an equal chance for the No.1 pick, the Minnesota Timberwolves, Golden State Warriors, and Charolette Hornets get the first, second, and third picks respectively.

I believe that center James Wiseman is the most talented player in the draft, standing at 7-foot-1 and 235 pounds. But the Timberwolves do not need a center because they have all-star Karl-Anthony Towns.

Therefore, in my opinion, the Timberwolves will select Dayton power forward Obi Toppin with the first pick in the NBA Draft.

Toppin will fit in perfectly for the Timberwolves as their current starter is Juan Hernangomez. Toppin would immediately become an upgrade for the Timberwolves as he is younger and more skilled.
