Rob Dillingham was one of the most widely discussed players entering the NBA Draft. Why? Because of his terrific skillset offensively but the sometimes defensive liability and potential 'fit' with certain teams atop the draft.

All of that went by the wayside when he ended up with the Minnesota Timberwolves after he was selected 8th overall.

"Yeah, playing with Anthony Edwards and the whole Timberwolves. They were in the Western Conference Finals. So it's really just a blessing because I get to learn from a lot of players and veterans and players that are real good," Dillingham said during draft night. "Them helping me is just a plus for me."

The Timberwolves lost in five games to the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Finals last season after a 56-26 record in the regular season. So, they needed to bolster their roster in order to take the next step.

"Who won the draft in my opinion is the Minnesota Timberwolves," Draymond Green said this week. "And the reason the Timberwolves won the draft is because they drafted their point guard of the future in Rob Dillingham -- who I think is a very special player. Some of those teams at the top of the draft were afraid of because he got swag and he got game and they don't know if his game is going to fit into their systems."

So, how excatly does Dillingham fit with the Timberwolves? Let's take a look.
