Wolves lose tiebreaker

From ESPN:
The league held random drawings Friday to break ties between lottery-bound teams that finished with idential regular-season records, and Portland was picked over Minnesota. The Trail Blazers and Timberwolves were both 32-50.

That means Minnesota will have the seventh-best chance among the 14 non-playoff teams of receiving the first overall choice...

The lottery will be held on May 22. If they're not one of the three teams picked, the Wolves will draft between seventh and 10th -- depending on how many, if any, teams behind them in the order are chosen.
