Timberwolves Select Richard
With the 41st selection in the draft, the Timberwolves addressed their height problems by taking power forward Chris Richard from the Florida Gators. Power doesn't even do this guy justice. This guy is a freakin tank, and his strength is probably the reason he was even drafted. I can't help but think that Richard is just another Craig Smith. He is slightly undersized, but hopefully since he is young he will continue to grow, and develop his offense. Plus, Richard will have a friend on the team in first round selection Corey Brewer. I wish they would have taken a center, but i remember seeing this guy play in the NCAA tourney, and i thought he looked like a great NBA prospect. I'm glad they didn't take a foreign guy, since we haven't had success with them in the past...for example Rasho Nesterovic and Igor Rakocevic. Richard has a good chance of making this team.
