Towns and Tyus arrive, Bjelica coming next to Timberwolves

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Jacqueline Cruz-Towns sat on a bench in the Minnesota Timberwolves' sparkling new practice facility, proudly wearing a Wolves hat on her head and a big smile on her face as she recalled a pre-draft visit her son Karl-Anthony made to Minneapolis last week.

"He toured this beautiful facility and he told me, `Mom, this is the place for me,'" Cruz-Towns said Friday, a day after the Timberwolves made him the No. 1 overall draft pick.

Long considered the NBA's version of Siberia, a losing franchise playing in a frigid climate ignored by free agents, the Timberwolves found two players in the draft who couldn't be happier to be coming to Minnesota.
