T-wolves pick Clemson forward Trevor Booker with #23

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Minnesota Timberwolves have taken Clemson forward Trevor Booker with the 23rd overall pick in the draft.

Booker is the first senior to be drafted in the 2010 class. The 6-foot-7, 236-pound Booker is a physical presence. He averaged 15.2 points and 8.4 rebounds for the Tigers last year.

If the Timberwolves decide to keep him, their 2010 class will be on the older side. The Wolves drafted Syracuse forward Wesley Johnson with the fourth overall pick. Johnson will turn 23 in July.

The Wolves also took Nevada shooter Luke Babbitt at No. 16 and dealt him to Portland for Martell Webster, according to a person familiar with the deal.

Minnesota also has two second-round picks.
