The NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves brought their first draft prospects to Target Center for a workout Thursday. Among the six players invited was former guard Austin Hollins, who recently graduated with 1,321 career points and as the school's leader in career games played (141).
Hollins said it meant a lot for him to work out for Minnesota's NBA team.
"It means a lot," Hollins said. "I've been here for four years--it's a long time. It doesn't seem like it, you know, it went fast, but it's a long time--four years. And being able to work out with the hometown team, it's an honor to be able to work out with them."
No matter what happens during the June NBA Draft, Hollins expressed that he'd like to play at a professional level, even in a European league.
"Of course I want to play in the NBA, that's my first goal," Hollins said. "But if that doesn't work out, I'm open to going overseas."
