Flip Saunders is representing a group of investors that is interested in buying the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Wolves owner Glen Taylor confirmed on Monday that he has recently had discussions with Saunders on behalf of a group of owners who are looking to purchase the team. The identities of the investors were not immediately known. But if they are successful in purchasing the team, Saunders would be expected to take over as the leader of basketball operations.
Sports talk radio station KFXN-FM first reported the talks.
Taylor has been casually looking for a new owner for the team since last summer. But he is not close to completing any kind of deal.
Saunders coached the Timberwolves for 9 1/2 seasons and has also coached the Pistons and Wizards.

In a season where their promising point guard Ricky Rubio missed a significant chunk of the season while rehabilitating a knee injury, their all-star power forward Kevin Love had two separate stints on the inactive list, the gamble on Brandon Roy’s ability to stay healthy failed to pay off and the draft lottery looming, Minnesota Timberwolves’ owner Glen Taylor may be reaching...
MINNEAPOLIS As expected, neither Nikola Pekovic nor Andrei Kirilenko will play on Monday against Miami. Pekovic suffered an abdominal strain in the first quarter of Thursday's game in Los Angeles, Kirilenko a calf strain two nights before in Phoenix.
Pekovic underwent an MRI, which coach Rick Adelman said did not reveal anything further. Both he and Kirilenko will be monitored...
MINNEAPOLIS When you're the Timberwolves, and the Heat are in town, and you have as many wins as they had the day after Christmas, there's a certain brand of inferiority complex that's bound to creep up.
It's manifested itself before, most unfortunately in a man dressed up as a Knicks fan who stood on the court and caterwauled in a grating New York accent on Feb...
Things got a little testy last night between the Miami Heat and the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Heat ended up extending their winning streak to 15, while the the Wolves‘ guard JJ Barea got ejected for shoving Ray Allen. As if that wasn’t enough, the Heat’s Harlem Shake video has gone viral, and the Timberwolves … Continue reading »
The viral sensation that is the Harlem Shake appears to still be going strong, despite the fact that many people like us have grown tired of it. Apparently the Minnesota Timberwolves have also had enough.
On Tuesday, the T-Wolves posted their own version of the Harlem Shake on their official YouTube account. As you can see, it featured a person in a LeBron James jersey wearing a...
Tape holds up the two snapshots, much like those that dot the locker of a high school sophomore.
Except this locker has no front, and it's full of basketball gear that hasn't been touched in months. This is Brandon Roy's cubby, at the far end of the Timberwolves' locker room, and those are picture of his two children, Brandon Jr., 5, and Mariah, 4. They're the...
David Kahn's tenure as general manager of the Timberwolves could be nearing an end
Know I’m late to this, but it’s my favorite sports video of the week. The set-up. This whole Harlem Shake epidemic is the latest mindless thing to blow up the Interwebs. You can’t escape it. It’s like Call Me Maybe all over again. Ganam-style to its most gag-tastic. My sincere hope is that it’s running its course. Unfortunately, it didn’t escape the Miami Heat, who released...
The Minnesota Timberwolves made a mockery of the Heat’s popular rendition of the “Harlem Shake” that’s already received 31+ million views in the 5 days since it was released. “Some things get old fast” flashes across the screen in Heat styled text as the TWolves mascot, Crunch, is seen beating a dancer dressed in a LeBron James jersey with a bat:
The Harlem Shake videos are all the rage at the moment, with the Toronto Raptors, Denver Nuggets, and the Miami Heat, posting videos of the “dance” and now the Minnesota Timberwolves post a their own depiction of the craze. With one big exception. They have an individual dressed in LeBron James’ jersey doing the Harlem [...]The post Minnesota Timberwolves Video Depicts...
The Minnesota Timberwolves created a hysterical video making fun of the Miami Heat’s Harlem Shake video, but unfortunately for them, a Heat fan came back and went at them hard. After the Timberwolves said that the Harlem Shake videos were getting old, the Heat fan took it to another level and said that being in the draft lottery was getting old fast. Nothing like going right...
We're glad to report that the Minnesota Timberwolves are as sick of this whole thing as you are.
