Wendell Moore crossed a guy out of the gym in Twin Cities Pro-Am

A trio of Minnesota Timberwolves pulled up to the Twin Cities Pro-Am on Tuesday and put on a show for those in attendance at the Minnehaha Academy.

Timberwolves forward Nathan Knight was joined by draftees Wendell Moore Jr. (26th pick) and Josh Minott (45th pick) on the same team for the festivities. Each filled the highlight reel against the competition and were easily the best players on the court.

But Moore easily had the highlight of the night.

The 20-year-old was captured on video with the ball near the 3-point line with a defender matched up closely on him. He gave him a few dribble moves and then sent him flying across the court, which earned loud cheers from the crowd.

The appearance by Moore and Minott came after a solid run by them in the Las Vegas Summer League. Moore averaged 12.2 points, 4.4 rebounds and two assists in five games while Minott posted 12.2 points and 8.6 rebounds.

The trio were the latest rookie players to participate in a Pro-Am this summer, joining Paolo Banchero, Tari Eason and David Roddy. However, that crossover by Moore will go down as one of the best moves of the offseason.
