MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves have added a potential rim protector to complement star Karl-Anthony Towns with the acquisition of 7-foot-1 Auburn center Walker Kessler. The Timberwolves sent the No. 19 pick to Memphis for a pair of first-rounders. The first one became Kessler. He won two national defensive player of the year awards for the Tigers last season. The second pick was packaged to Houston for the rights to Duke’s Wendell Moore Jr. Moore was the second-leading scorer for the Blue Devils on their way to the Final Four.
