2010 NBA Draft, 16th Pick: T'Wolves Draft Luke Babbitt, Will Trade Him To Blazers For Martell Webster

After getting his pink slip shortly before the NBA Draft set off, dead man walking-GM Kevin Pritchard has made his first move of the night: the Blazers will acquire Luke Babbitt (who Minnesota drafted 16th overall) as well as Ryan Gomes in return for Martell Webster, according to Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Babbitt is a sweet-shooting big (over 40% on threes) at 6-foot-9, who figures to play the three-spot in the pros. An underrated athlete -- he famously jumped 37 inches at the NBA Combine -- Babbitt has a mutlfaceted offensive game, and rebounded well in college, although that was against some lesser competition at Nevada.

As for the T'Wolves, Webster gives them a solid two-guard, teaming with Wes Johnson to remake their wings after a disastrous season from their twos and threes this past season.
