Brewer finished 9th in MIP voting...DraftExpress on drafting and stashing players like Pekovic...Ballow on Wolves chances in lottery
In what amounts to the highlight of the awards season for the Timberwolves, Corey Brewer finished ninth in balloting for the NBA's Most Improved Player Award, the league announced on Thursday.
Brewer, who turned himself into an effective three-point shooter in his third season, finished in a tie with Brook Lopez of New Jersey with 19 points (though Lopez received one of the 126 first-place votes). The award went to Houston point guard Aaron Brooks in a surprisingly lopsided vote.

With an extremely deep class highlighting the 2010 NBA Draft, the Wolves are one of the teams that will certainly make some noise on June 24. Here is the list of picks for Minnesota in 2010:
