T-wolves land Texas Tech's Culver after draft-day trade

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Timberwolves, under new president of basketball operations Gersson Rosas, have embarked on a roster revamp to improve their defense and 3-point shooting in an attempt to thrive in the current pace-and-space era in the NBA.

With center Karl-Anthony Towns well established as their go-to guy, the race has begun to accumulate as many versatile perimeter players as possible. Rosas took an aggressive tack toward his first draft with the team, and the Timberwolves wound up with another wing: Jarrett Culver.

"What we were able to do tonight is pretty rare," Rosas said Thursday. "A lot of times those things don't come together."
