The Phoenix Suns drafted former Texas Tech guard Jarrett Culver No. 6 overall in this year’s NBA Draft.

Shortly after, the Suns traded Culver to the Minnesota Timberwolves. That trade became official Saturday afternoon.

Culver averaged 18.5 points per game last season with Tech, along with 6.4 rebounds and nearly four assists on average.

Culver may make his NBA debut on Sunday during the summer league games in Las Vegas.
