Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
The Minnesota Timberwolves had reached agreements with Milt Newton and Bobby Jackson to join the organization earlier this month, but these past couple days, the Wolves made the announcements official.
Flip Saunders has brought in Milt Newton, formerly with the Washington Wizards, to become the new general manager. Newton will help with a lot the scouting and give plenty of opinion as the Wolves continue to (hopefully) build a contender. That being said, Flip will still have the final say on all decisions.
Bobby Jackson replaces Shawn Respert and David Adelman. Respert's contract expired in August and wasn't renewed, while D. Adelman was promoted to assistant coach (after Bill Bayno left to take a similar position in Toronto, with Dwane Casey). Jackson will be the lone player development coach. Bobby is already in town and has had workouts with Chase Budinger, Shabazz Muhammad and Chris Johnson. In fact, Rick Adelman had to tell him to quit doing two-a-days--to save the players' 'legs' for training camp! :)
Both sound like great fits with the organization and will hopefully aid in continuing to turn this franchise into a winner and a contender.
