2022 NBA Draft: Timberwolves pick Walker Kessler No. 22 (via Grizzlies)

The Minnesota Timberwolves have selected Walker Kessler with the No. 22 overall pick via a trade with the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2022 NBA Draft, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

ANALYSIS: After transferring from North Carolina, Kessler was arguably the best shot-blocker in the country, continues to develop as a short roll passer, and showed shooting flashes during this season. He's still not a reliable floor-stretcher but is incredibly efficient around the rim on offense with a soft touch on the block. Kessler's length, mobility, and rim protection give him a unique skill set, allowing him to provide great impact on an NBA floor.
