Wolves bring back Hummel with one-year, guaranteed contract

MINNEAPOLIS -- On his own, Robbie Hummel isn't the answer. But he'll have an opportunity to become part of it.

Is this… excitement for the Timberwolves?

The Timberwolves are in a weird situation. The NBA is the most image conscious league in the country, and they stake a lot of their reputation on the individual fame of their players as well as establishing games as the place to see and be seen among the trendiest citizens of a particular community.

The Minnesota Timberwolves Today

So, here we are Wolves fans. The draft is done, the Summer League’s in action, and the roster has 14 players on it. The off-season’s largest of dominoes have fallen. LeBron’s dramatic home coming, Melo and Bosh’s less dramatic decisions to remain where they were, and Pau Gasol joining the Bulls, put Kevin Love at the center of the league wide talk.

Saunders says he'll be more demanding on players he drafted

Room for Improvement: Shabazz Muhammad

Taken with the 14th and final lottery pick of the 2013 Draft, Shabazz Muhammad rarely got off the bench during his rookie year. What could he do to change that? Shabazz Muhammad’s career is veering dangerously close to the kind of arc that a villain in a PG-rated sports movie would follow.
