There is still some question whether the Minnesota Timberwolves will make the pick, or whether another team will trade up to take Ball.

The Minnesota Timberwolves hold the No.1 overall pick in next week's NBA Draft and they are exploring all their options.

It was the second private workout Ball granted.

A new report states that the Boston Celtics have offered two first-round picks in exchange for the Cleveland Cavaliers' fifth overall selection in Wednesday's National Basketball Association draft.

The Chicago Bulls, Detroit Pistons, and Oklahoma City Thunder have been named by National Basketball Association executives as teams that might be willing to trade up to No. 1 to select Ball. Both workouts took place in Southern California.

For their part, the Warriors, the Hornets and the Pistons have the second, third and seventh pick in the Draft, respectively. With the draft less than a week away, the Celtics have already completed eight of those workouts, with Vanderbilt sharpshooter Aaron Nesmith scheduled for one more. Along with Ball, Memphis center James Wiseman and Georgia guard Anthony Edwards also are vying to be selected in the top three.

The Timberwolves previously met with and worked out Edwards but have not been able to get much traction with Wiseman. A source told ESPN that Wiseman views situations with the Warriors and Hornets as more favorable to his long-term growth, and he has conducted workouts with only those two organizations.

The NBA relaxed restrictions on in-player evaluations and interviews in mid-October, according to a memo obtained by ESPN, opening the way for teams to meet with prospects in advance of next Wednesday's draft.
