The Minnesota Timberwolves appear to prefer to trade down rather than make the first overall pick.

Sources say the Wolves love Tyrese Haliburton and he could be their target if they move out of the top-3, or up from No. 17.

The working assumption amongst the league is that the Wolves will select LaMelo Ball if they keep the top pick. Haliburton would likely be a better fit than Ball with D'Angelo Russell given his ability to play off the ball.

The Wolves had a private workout with Ball this week.
