The Wolves took Georgia Tech wing Josh Okogie with pick No. 20, and Big Ten Player of the Year and Ohio State forward Keita Bates-Diop with pick No. 48.

Thibodeau admitted that he was surprised that Bates-Diop fell to them, and said that they thought they couldn't move back from 20 and still get Okogie. Both players worked out for the Wolves at Mayo Clinic Square earlier this month.

The Wolves will introduce the two rookies at a Tuesday news conference.
