2013 NBA Draft – #26:Andre Roberson
With the 26th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft the Minnesota Timberwolves selected Colorado small forward Andre Roberson.
As of this writing, the predominant rumor is that the Timberwolves chose Roberson with the intention of trading him to the Golden State Warriors. The Warriors reportedly have a deal in place sending Roberson to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for the 29th pick and cash.
Roberson is a player known for his defensive ability and his rebounding, while his offensive game is still very much on the raw side. That makes him a great fit for OKC, where the Thunder get plenty of points from Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, but love to add defensive-minded athletes around them.
Andre Roberson is just such a player.
