Jahlil Okafor Says Anti-Timberwolves Rumor Is B.S.

Jahlil Okafor NEVER said he doesn't want to play for the Minnesota Timberwolves if they select him with the #1 pick in the NBA Draft ... and says the rumors are a bunch of crap ... this according to a rep J.O. Reports surfaced recently saying the former Duke superstar has his heart set on being a Laker -- and may ask the Timberwolves not to draft him. But TMZ spoke with a rep for the 19-year-old who says, "He has never expressed anything about not wanting to play for the Timberwolves and is willing to go wherever he is drafted."
