The Spurs elected to trade Rob Dillingham to the Timberwolves with the eighth pick

After selecting Stephon Castle with the fourth pick, the Spurs selected guard Rob Dillingham from the University of Kentucky with the eighth pick before immediately trading him to the Minnesota Timberwolves for the rights to swap a 2030 first-round pick and protect the No. 1 spot for a 2031 first-round pick. Choice, for the sun of Sharaniya. (In other words, they used the eighth pick to pick someone who’s currently in the eighth grade! No? I’ll go out myself, even though that was J.R. Wilco’s line.)

There has been speculation that the Spurs may trade this pick in the absence of roster space and several future picks, and deeper drafts to come. If there’s more to this trade that hasn’t been reported yet, we’ll let you know.

Barring another trade involving a pick in the first round of this draft, that’s it for the Spurs tonight, but be sure to check back tomorrow for the second round of the draft, starting at 3:00 PM Central. Spurs will pick 35th and 48th.
