TIMBERWOLVES RUMORS & GOSSIP
Tweet The Minnesota Timberwolves had a rough 2012-2013 NBA season, largely because of two broken hands that kept All-Star forward Kevin Love out of action for most of the year. Love’s future with the team was also shrouded in doubt as his relationship with former GM David Kahn was strained, to say the least. With [...]

The Minnesota Timberwolves need a lot of luck. They ended the season with their best player, Kevin Love, getting injured. Now they asked him to represent in the Draft Lottery, and Love brought a Rubio action figure for good luck (reasons unknown). Rubio’s jersey number is 9, and they get–the 9th overall pick.
MINNEAPOLIS Even after his season-ending surgery, the Minnesota Timberwolves continue to rely on Kevin Love to flip their fortune.
The ultra-talented but recently sidelined forward will represent the Timberwolves at next week's NBA Draft Lottery, the team announced Thursday. It'll be Love, who played in only 18 games last season due to a maligned knee, who receives an in...
Flip Saunders would like to add more shooters to the Minnesota Timberwolves’ roster.
"We need more shooters,'' Saunders said. "You can't play with one (Budinger) or two (Luke Ridnour). A healthy Kevin Love will help there, but if we put shooters on the floor, you're going to see a much better (Ricky) Rubio.''The Timberwolves were the worst three...
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. The Los Angeles D-Fenders have named Mark Madsen, a member of the 2001 and 2002 Lakers championship teams, as their new coach.
Madsen, a 6-foot-9 power forward, spent nine years in the NBA, three with the Lakers and six with the Minnesota Timberwolves. He retired in 2009 and has since served as an assistant with the D-Leagues Utah Flash (now relocated to Delaware...

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Timberwolves have waived guard Brandon Roy, likely bringing an end to an All-Star career that was shortened by knee problems.
The Timberwolves announced the move Friday. Roy retired before last season due to knee issues, then attempted a comeback with the Timberwolves this season after going through a procedure that gave him hope that the chronic...
The Timberwolves are reportedly finalizing the release of Brandon Roy after a failed comeback for the sixth-year shooting guard, playing just five games this season for Minnesota after signing a two-year/$10 million contract with the team over the summer. This could be the end of his career after saying he was at a crossroads in his career earlier this season, however the former...
The Minnesota Timberwolves are interested in O.J. Mayo
Newly appointed President of Basketball Operations, Flip Saunders is looking to pair Ricky Rubio up with true shooting guard to form a dynamic backcourt. Unlike former general manager, David Kahn, Saunders apparently doesn’t believe in stacking the roster with point guards. With Mayo at the 2-spot, he can open up the court...
As the NBA Playoffs continue to roar along, the off-season at some point will come, and just like in the NFL, we will have months of free agent rumors and speculation.
Let the first rumor, or potential landing spot for a player begin.
Darren Wolfson of ESPN 1500 is reporting via his sources that the Minnesota Timberwolves are interested in adding O.J. Mayo to the fold.
The Minnesota Timberwolves replaced David Kahn as chief decision-maker with Flip Saunders.
The belief is that Kevin Love's relationship with the organization will improve with a regime change, but sources say Ricky Rubio's camp is disappointed with Kahn's dismissal.
Kahn drafted Rubio fifth overall knowing that he likely would not come to the NBA immediately.
Glen Taylor has pulled the Minnesota Timberwolves off the market.
Taylor said Friday that he has stopped looking for a buyer for the team and will instead offer to buy out any limited partners who are looking to sell.
Taylor put the team on the market last summer in hopes of finding a person or a group that would be willing to buy a minority stake to start with and then take control...
On Thursday, the Minnesota Timberwolves fired David Kahn and announced that the team hired former coach Flip Saunders to replace him.
After four seasons at the helm, David Kahn is no longer the General Manager of the Minnesota Timberwolves. The last four seasons have seen some strange statements, stranger moves, and overall confusion out of the Minnesota front office. T-Wolves fans are rejoicing that the guy who compared Darko Milicic to Chris Webber and whiffed on pretty much every first round pick he had is...
