Kris Dunn, Point Guard, Providence

Dunn bypassed the draft to return for his redshirt junior season, a decision that surprised many. He is a pass-first point guard, assisting on half of his team’s baskets while he was on the floor last season.

He was also a capable scorer, averaging 15.6 ppg. Dunn attempted only two three-pointers per game last year, hitting on 35.1% of attempts. While he isn’t lights out from deep, he’s enough of a threat to keep defenses honest.

The Wolves already have a pass-first point guard on the roster in Rubio. There have been some trade rumors surrounding Rubio, but they seem to be mostly just speculation. I highly doubt that the Wolves will move on from Rubio before the draft next year, but if they do, Dunn could be an option for the Wolves.
