Best Value: Kevin Garnett, No. 5, 1995. Drafting players straight from high school wasn't common in 1995, when the Timberwolves took the skinny Garnett out of Chicago's Farragut Academy. All he did was become the best player in franchise history and one of the best power forwards in league history.
Worst Value: Jonny Flynn, No. 6, 2009. Flynn was chosen right after the Wolves took another point guard, Ricky Rubio, as part of then-president David Kahn's ill-fated scheme to have the two play in thebackcourt together like Isiah Thomas and Joe Dumars did in Detroit. Then Kahn hired a coach, Kurt Rambis, who employed a system that did not suit Flynn's ball-dominant style of play, and the league quickly overwhelmed him. Oh, and the Wolves passed on Stephen Curry to take him. (Photo: Todd Warshaw /Allsport)
