Q&A: Auburn’s Isaac Okoro on desire to go No. 1 to Timberwolves
Auburn’s Isaac Okoro is one of the most popular NBA Draft prospects. He averaged 12.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and nearly a steal and a block each in his freshman year at Auburn. He’s considered one of the best defensive players in this draft class.

Okoro stands 6-foot-6 and feels comfortable guarding guards and forwards. Auburn was a constant top-20 team last season, so he was part of a winning culture.
