Back on draft day, the Minnesota Timberwolves were praised by many for their ability to swap the No. 9 pick (Trey Burke) for a pair of promising talents in the middle of the first round: Shabazz Muhammad at No. 14 and Gorgui Dieng at No. 21. But with only a few weeks until the start of the regular season, Burke is Utah's starting point guard while Muhammad or Dieng are at risk of falling out of the T-Wolves' rotation. Will either make an impact as a rookie?
