The New Orleans Pelicans and Minnesota Timberwolves meet Friday in summer league NBA action at the Thomas & Mack Center. Here’s a New Orleans Pelicans vs Minnesota Timberwolves Prediction. This article will include a New Orleans Pelicans and Minnesota Timberwolves Pick.

Minnesota Timberwolves Betting Preview

The Timberwolves will kick off their summer league in Las Vegas. For Timberwolves fans, this will be the first chance to see Rob Dillingham and Terrence Shannon Jr, who were both first round picks. Both players are expected to play some sort of role with the Wolves this upcoming season. The Timberwolves traded up in the first round to be able to select former Kentucky Wildcat Dillingham. In 23.3 minutes per game last year for Kentucky, Dillingham averaged 15.2 points while shooting 47.5 percent from the field. Josh Minott and Leonard Reynolds were both on the Timberwolves last season and will be featured again on the Summer League. 

New Orleans Pelicans Betting Preview

The Pelicans selected Yvess Missi with the 21st overall pick out of Baylor, and this will be his first chance to impress the new team. Last season in Baylor, he played 23 minutes while averaging 10.7 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. He is a very unfinished product, and more of a project piece, probably. Joey Hauser was a standout with the Michigan State Spartans, and he should get plenty of time to prove that he belongs in the NBA. Izaiah Brockington made one appearance last season for New Orleans, playing three minutes and finishing with four points. The Pelicans might not have as deep of a game, and they are going to need a ton of production from the starters. 

New Orleans Pelicans vs Minnesota Timberwolves Prediction

The Timberwolves are the deep and more talented team, and they are going to find success here. Dillingham and Shannon Jr are both going to find a ton of success here, and that is going to be the difference here. The Timberwolves' offense is going to run up the score early, and the Pelicans aren’t going to have the offensive success to keep this game close. Back the Timberwolves against the spread.
