Minnesota Timberwolves

  1. Timberwolves go on option spree, pick up Love, Beasley and more

    One thing we can agree on is that the Minnesota Timberwolves have amassed some talent. How good that talent really is, how it all fits together and how it is being used may be the more pertinent questions, but there is talent on the Minnesota roster. So it was only logical that the Timberwolves picked…

  2. Wolves have little hope of getting more compensation for Webster

    Oct 29, 2010, 1:28 PM EDT

    Caveat emptor. It’s the first rule of being a consumer, and the Minnesota Timberwolves ignored it. Now they stand little chance of getting any extra compensation from the Portland Trail Blazers in the Martell Webster trade. For those of you need to brush up on our Latin, caveat emptor means “let the buyer beware.” The…

  3. Kevin Love, Kurt Rambis hug it out, say everything is just fine

    Oct 29, 2010, 9:27 AM EDT

    Kevin Love had a lot of people rushing to his defense — including us here at PBT — after he sat out the final eight minutes of a one-point loss to Sacramento Wednesday. Rambis took some hits for playing Anthony Tolliver over Love down the stretch. But while the Internet was doing what the Internet…

  4. Rambis says defense reason Kevin Love got benched. But Beasley and Darko stayed in?

    Kevin Love played just under nine minutes in the second half of the Timberwolves season opener. He came out at the 8:38 mark of the fourth quarter never to return. Love, the one guy on the Timberwolves part of USA Basketball this summer, the guy considered the face of the franchise and the future by…

  5. Timberwolves’ Jonny Flynn targets mid-November

    Last season the Minnesota Timberwolves were Jonny Flynn’s team. Right now they are Luke Ridnour’s. Well, they should be Kevin Love’s but as Ridnour brings the ball up the court, it is he who decides who gets the rock. Ergo, his team. For now. Flynn has hip surgery this summer but was back on the…

  6. Martell Webster has back surgery

    Oct 25, 2010, 3:21 PM EDT

    Mwebster_wolves

    UPDATE 3:21 pm: He had it — Webster went under the knife Monday to remove part of a herniated disc in his back that had been giving him problems, according to the Star Tribune. No word on a recovery timetable, but four to six weeks sounds likely. Someone on the Timberwolves needs to pick up…

  7. Timberwolves, Grizzlies hope preseason success carries over to games that matter

    Oct 19, 2010, 10:24 AM EDT

    Love_Beasley

    Preseason games are not irrelevant. A team’s record in them can have some correlation to the regular season. Not so much with the elite teams — nobody thinks Boston is any better at 6-1 in the preseason, nobody is reading much into the Lakers being 2-3. Come deep in the playoffs those teams will still…

  8. NBA Season Preview: Minnesota Timberwolves

    Oct 8, 2010, 3:14 PM EDT

    Twolves_intro

    Last season: 15-67, second worst record in the NBA last season, although at the end of the campaign they were playing worse ball than the Nets. Head Coach: Kurt Rambis enters his second year with this question: How good a coach is he? I’m not sold we’ll get the answer. The Timberwolves brought him in…

  9. Timberwolves go tall with starting five

    Oct 4, 2010, 4:33 PM EDT

    Be careful about taking much away from preseason games. Backups get major run, coaches are experimenting, only the guys fighting for jobs are really motivated. But one thing we can take note of from the Minnesota Timberwolves first preseason game (against the Lakers in London), the starting lineup: Luke Ridnour, Wesley Johnson, Michael Beasley, Kevin…

  10. Terror alert up in Europe but will not slow NBA tour

    Oct 3, 2010, 1:00 PM EDT

    There is enough chatter out there in the intelligence community that the United States warned travelers about potential terrorist attacks in Europe today. Right as the Lakers, Knicks and Timberwolves are touring that continent of a preseason, game globalization trip. The Lakers and Timberwolves are in London, the Knicks in Milan. The Lakers will travel…

  11. Ricky Rubio’s parents turn down meeting with Timberwolves

    Oct 1, 2010, 9:55 AM EDT

    The Minnesota Timberwolves are in Europe, too. Think of them like the first opening act at a huge stadium concert, the band that comes on before the Knicks and then the Lakers take the stage. The band you kind of hear while you are still tailgating in the parking lot. But the Timberwolves have a…

  12. Timberwolves using Michael Beasley at small forward, they may want to ask Miami about that

    Sep 28, 2010, 3:29 PM EDT

    Reports out of Timberwolves camp say that Michael Beasley is playing the three spot, according to the Pioneer Press. Which makes some sense when you think Kevin Love needs to be the starting power forward for Minnesota. Except… Maybe the T-Wolves should call up the Heat and ask how Beasley worked out at the three…

  13. Deron Williams is Batman, Al Jefferson is Robin

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:41 AM EDT

    Al Jefferson has gone from the constant rebuilding project that is Minnesota to the most stable organization in the league in Utah. From the flatland to the Rockies. He went from Jonny Flynn at point to Deron Williams. Jefferson gets how lucky he is, and who D-Will is, as he told the Salt Lake Tribune.…

  14. Michael Beasley, soon to discover golf's winter rules

    Sep 27, 2010, 11:00 AM EDT

    Miami has seemingly countless clubs and ways for players to get into trouble. The other thing it has seemingly countless numbers of is golf courses. Ones you can play on pretty much 365. To Michael Beasley’s credit, when he got frustrated and down while disappointing the fans and staff in Miami, he sought solace on…

  15. Hey Carmelo, if not the Knicks or Nets, how about the Timberwolves?

    Sep 26, 2010, 5:57 PM EDT

    If the four-team blockbuster with the Nets falls through, if the Nuggets are not going to accept a deal from the Knicks, if the Bulls are not throwing Joakim Noah in the deal, what is Carmelo Anthony going to do? How about the Minnesota Timberwolves? We’re not kidding, there was this note in the Twin…

  16. Jonny Flynn not headed to Europe with Timberwolves

    Sep 24, 2010, 4:06 PM EDT

    Who wants to go to Europe when you can spend time in a training room in Minneapolis? Jonny Flynn. Well not that he wants to do that, but it’s what’s going to happen tweeted Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. Flynn had hip surgery this summer and will stay behind to do more rehab work.…

  17. David Kahn's letter to Wolves fans: rebuilding of the Timberwolves "nearly complete"

    Sep 14, 2010, 4:10 PM EDT

    At least the Timberwolves are being open with their fan base. That’s a positive. First there was the odd full-page letter to the fan base in the Star Tribune yesterday. Then there was the personal letter from the architect of the current Timberwolves, GM David Kahn, to Wolves fans. Here are some highlights, but check…

  18. Minnesota publishes odd, "honest" open letter to fans. Because nothing sells tickets like letters.

    Sep 14, 2010, 10:27 AM EDT

    You know how if you have to explain a joke you’ve already screwed up the execution of it… Meet the Minnesota Timberwolves. On Monday they took over the back page of the Star Tribune with a full-page letter to fans, (you can see the text of it here). The letter is clever in concept in…

  19. Do the Timberwolves have a Euro sleeper in Nemanja Bjelica?

    Sep 9, 2010, 1:05 PM EDT

    You ever heard of Nemanja Bjelica? Of course not, you have a life and a fantasy football team to obsess over. That’s why teams hire European scouts, to go find guys who might fit in the NBA some day so you don’t have to. Bjelica was a guy who caught interest because he’s 6’10” with…

  20. Ricky Rubio is good, but until his shot falls more the legend part is on hold

    Sep 9, 2010, 11:59 AM EDT

    Ricky Rubio has reached a legendary status. With reason — the guy was on the floor in the key moments of an Olympic gold medal game at age 19, or just check out his mix tapes. He has mad game. He’s 19 and will spend this season playing for Barcelona, then decide whether to come…

  21. Jonny Flynn is spending the rest of his summer by the pool — the workout pool

    Sep 1, 2010, 1:10 PM EDT

    Good news from Jonny Flynn, who tweeted last night he is off the crutches, walking and doing some pool workouts as he recovers from off-season hip surgery. That’s a good sign. He’s expected to still miss training camp and the start of the season, but the recovery seems to be coming along. The adjustment questions…

  22. Carmelo Anthony doesn't have to be careful what he wishes for

    Aug 28, 2010, 10:58 PM EDT

    As the rumor mill starts to churn more heavily about the eventual destination of Carmelo Anthony now that it’s accepted he wants out of Denver, there will be conflicting reports. Some will say that the Nuggets don’t care a lick about what Carmelo wants and will trade him to whomever they please. These reports will…

  23. Kevin Love has a thick head, he's fine

    Aug 23, 2010, 4:40 PM EDT

    Kevin Love got smacked on the head pretty good in the United States win over Lithuania Saturday then did not play on Sunday. But don’t read anything into that, he is good to go and likely will see the court against Greece Wednesday. The reason he didn’t play Sunday was it was just one day…

  24. Now ex-Timberwolf Nathan Jawai to play in Serbia

    Aug 18, 2010, 1:01 PM EDT

    Big news: Nathan Jawai, the 2008 second rounder who played for Minnesota last season and Toronto the season prior, will play professionally for BC Partizan in Serbia next season, according to Inside Hoops. It’s only big news because all things with Nathan Jawai are, well, big. The guy’s built like a Winnebago. Jawai is definitely…

  25. Well, at least Minnesota's uniforms will look good this season

    Aug 16, 2010, 3:56 PM EDT

    Minnesota is taking the Fernando Lamas philosophy into next season — it is better to look good than to feel good. We’ve got plenty of questions about how the Timberwolves will play, but they have updated their uniforms. As you can see in the photo to the right, they look fantastic on headless mannequins. (Thanks…
