No. 20 pick Josh Okogie scored 10 points but added seven rebound, four assists, two steal and three blocks in Friday’s 69-70 loss to the Nuggets.
The efficiency wasn’t there for Okogie tonight, shooting 2-for-10 from the field, 1-for-5 from 3 and 5-for-8 from the line, in addition to his five turnovers but he was a whirlwind all over the court including a nasty block at the rim despite being 6’4″. His shooting should pick up and he looks like he might be a late-round steal for the Wolves. Unfortunately for him, coach Thibs doesn’t play his rookies much; if either the under-performing Andrew Wiggins or the disgruntled Jimmy Butler are traded, Okogie would be a great add.
