Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
Last year, the Minnesota Timberwolves had three players involved in four events. This season, the Wolves have two players involved in one event.
Last season, Kevin participated and won the Three-Point Contest and was a reserve for the Western Conference All-Star team. Ricky Rubio & Derrick Williams played in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge game. Williams was also a participant of the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest.
This season, Ricky Rubio & Alexey Shved travelled to Houston and will play (on the same team) in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge.
