Class action lawsuit against Timberwolves over ticket system nears settlement

A class-action lawsuit filed against the Timberwolves in 2016 over their implementation of their Flash Seats paperless ticketing system is nearing a settlement, according to an e-mail sent Monday from Brian Gudmundson, the attorney representing the plaintiffs, to at least one of the plaintiffs, Chris Hennen, which was obtained by the Star Tribune. The suit alleged that the implementation of Flash Seats “fundamentally, and unlawfully, alters the way Timberwolves ticket holders may use and transfer tickets” and was put in place to “control the use, resale, and transfer of tickets by...

Trade Wiggins for Irving? It says more about Andrew than Kyrie

We’ve had a few days to digest the news that 1) Kyrie Irving wants out of Cleveland and 2) the Timberwolves are one of four teams to which he would like to be traded. The others? The Knicks (huge market), Heat (amazing weather, recent championship history) and Spurs (model NBA franchise). The Timberwolves can offer none of those things (at least in the winter), having missed the playoffs 13 years in a row and never having even appeared in the NBA Finals. What they do have now are two bona fide stars — Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns — and another athletic scorer in Andrew Wiggins to...

NBA Trade Rumors: Minnesota Timberwolves Stars Want Kyrie Irving To Join Their Team Through Cavs Trade

NBA trade rumors have the stars of the Minnesota Timberwolves trying to lure Kyrie Irving to town. A possible NBA trade between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Cleveland Cavaliers is certainly possible, but would Irving want to go play in that particular city? A report by Hoops Hype was just released, with sources stating that Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns are trying to recruit the All-Star point guard. This could be huge news because a rebuilding Minnesota Timberwolves franchise could be very formidable with a core of Kyrie Irving, Jimmy Butler, and Karl-Anthony Towns. If the...

Five available NBA free agents who could make sense with Wolves

The Timberwolves officially introduced Jamal Crawford to the media on Wednesday, giving them 11 players on a 15-man roster. That means their offseason shopping isn’t done yet. But who is left at this point aside from a bunch of Summer League hopefuls? Well, actually quite a few useful players. As Jerry Zgoda notes, the NBA free agent market was impacted this year by a combination of last year’s frenzy (leaving some teams strapped) and a lower-than-expected salary cap number this year. So while the Wolves have already made a bevy of moves this offseason — adding Jimmy Butler via trade...

Timberwolves trumped Cavaliers twice, and LeBron isn't happy

Per USA Today, LeBron James is unhappy about the way the Cavaliers’ offseason has unfolded. And if there’s one team specifically that has spoiled what LeBron hoped would be an offseason spent retooling Cleveland’s roster to better compete with Golden State, it is none other than your Timberwolves. Twice. Per the story: James soon found his anticipation and optimism diminished after Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert dismantled the front office, declining days before the draft and free agency to bring back general manager David Griffin and vice president of basketball operations Trent Redden....

Wolves' Summer League scouting: Any of these guys have a chance?

At the intersection of my job and my sickness, I present to you: Tuesday, July 11, 2017. On that date, let it be known that I not only spent two hours at Xcel Energy Center watching a Wild prospect camp scrimmage, but also went home and set my DVR to record a Timberwolves Summer League game vs. Golden State. Both of those pursuits were part of my job, sure, but I was also happy to do both. Yes, I couldn’t even stay away in mid-July from two sports that really have no business doing anything in mid-July. I’ll have a couple of things on the Wild later this week. The Wolves Summer League...
