The Timberwolves introduced 6’7 guard/forward Chase Budinger at a press conference Wednesday afternoon.  Budinger was traded for by the Wolves Tuesday when they sent the 18th overall pick in this year’s draft to Houston for him and little known prospect 6’9 forward Lior Eliyahu.  Budinger averaged 9.6 points a game in 2011-2012 with Houston.  He played his first 2 seasons for then head coach Rick Adelman.  Adelman is now the head coach for the Wolves.

Timberwolves Vice President David Kahn said at the press conference that the Wolves may be interested in trading back into the first round of the draft.  The Wolves currently only hold a 2nd round pick (58th overall) in tonight’s draft.  New Orleans as the first pick.  The draft begins at 6:30pm (CT) tonight.
