Rob Dillingham

Experience: Rookie

Position: Guard

Perhaps already the best player on the Timberwolves summer league squad, former Kentucky guard Rob Dillingham was a highly-touted prospect despite coming off the bench for most of his lone season in Lexington. The 19-year-old guard only started in one of 32 games but made an impact every time he touched the floor.

Dillingham is a smooth, effortless scorer. The eighth-overall pick is just as good on-ball as he is away from the ball. Dillingham connected on 47.5 percent of his field goals and 44.4 percent of his triples. He averaged 26.1 points on a per-40-minute basis.

If Dillingham were a few inches taller, he'd likely have gone first overall in last month's draft—he's that good. However, at 6-foot-1 and weighing 164 pounds, the Wildcat product will be one of the smallest players in the NBA.

Luckily for Wolves and Dillingham, he'll enter the league behind one of the best small guards in recent memory, Mike Conley. The 36-year-old floor general entered the league at 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds, a tad shorter yet 10 pounds heavier than Dillingham.

The rookie guard will begin his career coming off the bench to replace Conley. In the NBA, expect Dillingham to light up the scoreboard right away. Where he'll need to progress the most is his one-on-one defense and facilitating.
