NBA draft: Rawle Alkins works out for Minnesota Timberwolves

NBA draft: Rawle Alkins works out for Minnesota Timberwolves

Arizona guard Rawle Alkins (1) tries to slip between USC guard Derryck Thornton (5) left, and forward Bennie Boatwright (25) while bringing the ball up court in the first half of their Pac-12 game at McKale Center, Saturday, February 10, 2018, Tucson, Ariz.

On Monday, the Minnesota Timberwolves worked out former Arizona Wildcats guard Rawle Alkins, which is now the fourth team the Brooklyn native has met with leading up to the NBA draft.

Alkins was joined by Jeffrey Carroll (Oklahoma State), D.J. Hogg (Texas A&M) and Josh Okogie (Georgia Tech). Alkins said on his Instagram story that it was a "great workout."  

Alkins has now worked out for the Timberwolves, Suns, Hawks and Kings. Allonzo Trier worked out for Minnesota on Friday. 

The Timberwolves have a first-round and a second-round pick in the draft: No. 20 and No. 48 overall. Alkins has been projected anywhere from an early to mid second-round pick. One mock draft has Alkins going to the Oklahoma City Thunder at No. 57 overall with Trier going undrafted.
