BOULDER — McKinley Wright IV didn’t hear his name called on the night of the NBA Draft.
It’s nothing new to former Colorado Buffaloes guards.
Instead, Minnesota natives have agreed to a two-way contract with Timberwolves and are staying close to their homes.
There’s nothing new to me .. I’m grateful whether I’m blessed or not! I prove they are wrong at all levels, this is not new to me .. get it … double down 🎲🎲🙏🏾
