"I can't wait to get started," Culver said. "We have a talented bunch of guys and I'll do whatever I need to do to fit into my role."

"I was glued to the draft with my family on NBA draft night and to hear my name called was definately a dream come true. My goal is to come in and put the most effort I can to learn from the veteran players," says Nowell.

At the beginning of the press conference, the Wolves announced the signing of free agent Naz Reid, who had a strong showing in the summer league for the Wolves.

"I have a lot to prove and I'm just grateful I get the opportunity to show everyone what I can do. I can't wait for camp to start," Reid said.
