The Timberwolves chose Donyell Marshall with the fourth pick in the 1994 NBA Draft.  As usual, the Wolves were one pick away from superstardom.  The first three picks in that season's draft were perennial All-Star Glenn Robinson and future Hall of Famers Jason Kidd and Grant Hill.  Marshall was the best of the rest after a superb college career at UConn.  Marshall's Wolves career lasted just 40 games, but can hardly be considered a failure -- at midseason he was traded straight-up to Golden State for Tom Gugliotta.  Googs would become the first All-Star in Wolves history and would team with Kevin Garnett and Stephon Marbury to give them their first winning season and playoff appearance.
