That guy, Targuy Ngombo, that nobody knew about, for the right reason, turned out to be a fraud! Yup, Pete Philo’s alleged “baby” lied about both his age and even his name, to a lesser degree.
The Timberwolves took Ngombo with the 57th overall pick in last night’s draft.
Also, the trade with the Rockets was reported wrong. The Wolves never received two second-rounders for Jonny Flynn and the #20. That #38 pick that Houston used to take Chandler Parsons was their’s all along. They never had to buy it back from the Wolves, unfortunately. So they really only ended up with Brad Miller, a future first rounder and that 24th pick.
Can’t win everything, eh, Kahn?
