  1. Timberwolves priority to re-sign now thinner Kevin Love

    Dec 1, 2011, 2:04 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Kevin Love Holds Press Conference In Times Square

    Say what you will about David Kahn — and trust me, we will — the man knows why he still is pulling a paycheck. And he said at his press conference Thursday that he wants to make sure Kevin Love gets an extension on his rookie deal. Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune had the…

  2. Ricky Rubio rolls ankle during EuroBasket tune-ups

    Aug 24, 2011, 10:51 AM EDT

    Spain's basketball player Ricky Rubio talks to the media after the presentation of the Spanish basketball team for the upcoming Eurobasket 2011 championships at Madrid's Arena

    For NBA owners — even during a lockout — this remains a frightening proposition: Their best players getting injured representing their country in international competitions. So far through this summer of Olympic qualifying there have been some injuries but fortunately nothing major. Now you can add the Timberwolves new No. 1 import Ricky Rubio to…

  3. Love says players want compromise but will not roll over

    Aug 17, 2011, 11:07 AM EDT

    Kevin Love 2

    The players are not winning the public relations battle with the lockout. Frankly, they can’t. The average sports fan knows the owners are ultra-rich, but they don’t relate to 20-somethings making millions. The players tend to get blamed for a lockout, no matter whose not budging. The NBA players realize they are going to come…

  4. Quote of the Day: Martell Webster talks sharks, orgies

    Aug 2, 2011, 10:30 PM EDT

    Webster_Martell

    “So, I just found out that sharks have orgies after eating whale blubber. Thats very disturbing. Well I’m having whale blubber tonite.” —Timberwolves shooting guard Martell Webster, who apparently has been watching a lot of Shark Week, via twitter. (Hat tip to I am a GM)

  5. Adelman doesn’t sound like a guy who wants to coach next season

    Aug 1, 2011, 4:29 PM EDT

    rick adelman

    Everytime a coaching vacancy has come up, Rick Adelman’s name has come up. Which makes sense, the guy has won pretty much everywhere he has been, and when given real talent he has knocked on the doorstep of a title. Who couldn’t use a proven winner of a coach? The question has always been, does…

  6. Breaking down the Wolves coaching search by dollars

    Jul 29, 2011, 10:24 AM EDT

    Timberwolves Kahn Basketball

    It’s all about the Benjamins. With the Minnesota Timberwolves interviewing a roughly everyone west of the Misissippi River for their open coaching position — Don Nelson, Larry Brown, Rick Adelman, Terry Porter, Bernie Bickerstaff, Mike Woodson — it is hard to get exactly what they are looking for. Sure, GM David Kahn said he wanted…

  7. Report: Bickerstaff to interview with Timberwolves Friday

    Jul 22, 2011, 10:13 AM EDT

    Bickerstaff

    No real shock here, this was expected, but we pass along the news anyway. Bernie Bickerstaff will be formally interviewing for the Minnesota Timberwolves vacant head coaching job on Friday, according to the Star Tribune. Bickerstaff, who is currently an assistant in Portland, has spent 13 seasons as head coach in the NBA with stops…

  8. Report: Two teams fined for speaking about players

    Jul 20, 2011, 8:15 PM EDT

    no talking

    It was bound to happen — David Stern is a stickler for his rules. One of his rules was team officials cannot even talk about players during the lockout. (Go look at NBA.com and try to find a picture of a current player.) Now two teams have gotten their wrist slapped for this, tweeted Yahoo’s…

  9. Timberwolves may still interview Bickerstaff

    Jul 20, 2011, 8:48 AM EDT

    Bickerstaff

    The Minnesota Timberwolves are off to a fast start with interviews — Terry Porter and Mike Woodson have sat down with Wolves management, Don Nelson has spoke to them on the phone and likely will get an interview. But don’t count out Bernie Bickerstaff, tweets beat writer Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. Expect Timberwolves…

  10. Timberwolves interview Mike Woodson for coaching gig

    Jul 19, 2011, 9:39 AM EDT

    IL: Atlanta Hawks v Chicago Bulls

    For the past few weeks, once the ownership change went through and John Kuester was let go, it was thought Mike Woodson was he frontrunner to be the new head coach of the Detroit Pistons. But Celtics assistant (and former Nets head coach) Lawrence Frank reportedly impressed owner Tom Gores in the interview. The Pistons…

  11. Tolliver says Wolves need to find defensive coach

    Jul 14, 2011, 9:12 AM EDT

    Tolliver_wolves

    We — fans, media — always seem to focus on the offense. So the story about how Kurt Rambis didn’t work as a coach always seems to focus on the triangle offense. Which the Wolves ran in a different form than Phil Jackson’s Lakers teams, due to personnel. But that was not the problem according…

  12. Report: Wolves may move Rambis to front office

    Jul 7, 2011, 8:50 AM EDT

    Kurt Rambis

    This whole situation is just pathetic. The Minnesota Timberwolves have yet to officially fire Kurt Rambis. Make no mistake, he’s done. He will not be coaching the Timberwolves next year. That much is clear. But Rambis continues to be hung out to dry by the wolves. Officially he is still the coach. Nobody has fired…

  13. Report: If Wolves draft Williams No. 2, Beasley moves to trade block

    Jun 6, 2011, 12:26 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    It is known around the league that Minnesota will trade you the No. 2 overall pick if you are willing to send them a veteran big man in return. Problem is, in this draft nobody really wants to give up a decent veteran big man for what they can get at No. 2. If things…

  14. Report: Rambis to return to Wolves but must retool staff

    Jun 4, 2011, 3:00 PM EDT

    Love_Rambis

    Kurt Rambis may have no idea what is going on with his job, but apparently other people do. He may be staying on board for another year. J. Michael Falgoust of the USA Today tweeted this Friday night. I’m told by a source that #Twolves will bring back #KurtRambis but force him to retool his…

  15. Ricky Rubio reaches deal to play for Minnesota. Finally.

    Jun 2, 2011, 3:37 AM EDT

    Spain v USA

    Ricky Rubio is going to be the Minnesota Timberwolves point guard next season. Well, providing there is a next season. Multiple sources are now reporting that Rubio, the 20-year-old Spanish phenom point guard drafted by the Timberwolves two years ago, has reached a deal to play in the NBA. That means he and Minnesota will…

  16. Wolves would like to trade No. 2 pick, still get Kanter

    May 26, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    enes Kanter

    The Minnesota Timberwolves don’t know what they are going to do with the No. 2 pick yet — keep it or trade it. But maybe we know what their dream scenario will be. In his latest mock draft, Sports Illustrated’s Sam Amick says this about Minnesota and the No. 2 pick: It should surprise no…

  17. Enes Kanter is becoming key to the NBA Draft

    May 24, 2011, 12:17 PM EDT

    Enes Kanter

    Suddenly, the NBA Draft is becoming the “what to do with Enes Kanter?” draft. Cleveland will take Kyrie Irving No. 1 overall. Then the drama starts. Minnesota is shopping around the No. 2 pick. Which had seemed like it will be Derrick Williams out of Arizona (a four who wants to play away from the…

  18. Report: Minnesota dangling No. 2 pick, Pacers interested

    May 19, 2011, 5:09 PM EDT

    Granger_celebrates

    It makes a lot of sense for the Timberwolves to be shopping the No. 2 pick in the draft, which makes the numerous reports it is happening easy to believe. That pick is either going to be Derrick Williams — a likely four who maybe can play the three — or now-rising Turkish power forward…

  19. Report: Timberwolves willing to trade No. 2 pick

    May 18, 2011, 2:29 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    Clearly, Minnesota GM David Kahn did not love getting the No. 2 pick in the draft. Can’t really blame him (question how he handled it, what he said, but not the natural reaction of being frustrated). Duke point guard Kyrie Irving made a lot of sense for the Wolves (despite all their other PGs, none…

  20. Winderman: Wolves GM Kahn crossed Stern’s line in sand

    May 18, 2011, 11:56 AM EDT

    davidkahn

    A few years back, amid one of those periods of inspection when it came to NBA officiating, the attempt was made during one of his NBA Finals media sessions to get David Stern to comment on greater access to referees. The question began something along the lines of, “Considering there will always be those who…

  21. Wolves GM David Kahn hints at lottery fix. Fine on way.

    May 18, 2011, 2:46 AM EDT

    Timberwolves Kahn Basketball

    What can get you in more trouble with David Stern than saying his referees are biased? Saying the NBA Draft Lottery is fixed. Which is pretty much what Minnesota Timberwolves GM David Kahn did after the lottery (where his team with the worst record fell to the No. 2 spot). Cleveland won the top spot.…

  22. NBA draft lottery: Who needs to win this most?

    May 16, 2011, 10:09 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    Your team isn’t in the NBA draft lottery unless it needs help (or you used to do trades with Isiah Thomas). Everybody in it needs to win it. Especially this year, where the drop off from All-Star to “maybe he can be a rotation guy in a couple years” to “we’re hoping he can develop”…

  23. Ricky Rubio not eager for NBA move, Spanish agent says

    May 7, 2011, 5:25 PM EDT

    Ricky Rubio Barcelona

    Welcome to the world of people competing for the ear of Ricky Rubio. Minnesota Timberwolves officials will be over in Spain next week trying the time share style hard sell on the 20-year-old point guard, telling him now is the time to come to America. Rubio’s American agent echoes those thoughts. His Spanish agent feels…

  24. Timberwolves executives on Ricky Rubio quest again

    May 5, 2011, 11:50 AM EDT

    Spain v USA

    General Manager David Kahn and the Minnesota Timberwolves are nothing if not persistent. Next week they will be in Spain again on their quest to get Ricky Rubio — the 2009 No. 5 overall pick — to sign up, leave Barcelona and come to the states. And according to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune,…

    David Kahn puts the audacity of hope to the test unlike any other general manager. After two seasons at the helm — where Minnesota has won a combined 32 games — Kahn had this to say at a press conference Wednesday (via Canis Hoopus‘ twitter feed): We’re ahead of where we thought we’d be with…
