Minnesota Timberwolves: Best and Worst Off Season Moves
Best Move: Drafting Shabazz Muhammad
- Muhammad has his fair share of doubters, but there is no doubt that he is one of the purest scorers in the draft. He was a steal at 14 and fills a big need for the Timberwolves, perimeter scoring. They lacked a go-to player on the perimeter and although Muhammad may not be ready for that...
One of the bigger surprises of NBA free agency is perhaps the fact that Nikola Pekovic’s future with the Minnesota Timberwolves is still unresolved, and not really that close to being resolved.
Pekovic and his representatives will meet with Timberwolves president of basketball operations Flip Saunders, owner Glen Taylor, and head coach Rick Adelman on July 29, one league source...

It's June in the Twin Cities. You and your family kicked on the AC a few days ago. It's about time for the boat's annual tune-up. You can't go a few blocks downtown without passing an engagement photo shoot. More and more joggers and roller skaters can...

This time around, the Relativity Sports folks decided to focus on the finer things in life with NBA players DeMarcus Cousins, Ricky Rubio, Iman Shumpert, and Al Harrington:
At Relativity Sports the stereotype of the “dumb jock” is definitely a myth. They consider Ricky Rubio, DeMarcus Cousins, Iman Shumpert, Al Harrington & Aaron Jackson to be sophisticated Renaissance Men, and are grateful for the wisdom they share with Relativity employees. Relativity athletes are clearly #morethanmuscle.-TOAthletes Audition for R.I.P.D.Athletes Go Hollywood for Relativity
Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said Wednesday that president of basketball operations Flip Saunders will travel to New York early next week – as early as Monday – to talk with Nikola Pekovic’s agent Jeff Schwartz in hopes of finalizing a deal for the restricted free agent center.

The news of Kyrie Irving’s appearance as the coverboy for the impending release of EA Sports’ “NBA Live 14″ broke a few months ago complete with photoshopped, unofficial versions of the cover. Today, we have the release of the official cover which features a somewhat-digitized Irving providing a bit of a scowl.
EA Sports also released a 30-second trailer, complete with some...
