Wolves Updates 4/1

Jawai re-assigned to D-League...Theus to interview at DePaul...Milicic says "good experience" with Wolves...Taste Of The Timberwolves review...

From the Timberwolves site:

The Minnesota Timberwolves announced the club has assigned second-year forward Nathan Jawai to the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA Development League. Jawai has appeared in 39 games for the Wolves this season, averaging 3.2 points and 2.7 rebounds in 10.6 minutes per game.

 

From the Associated Press:

Minnesota Timberwolves assistant coach Reggie Theus will interview for the opening at DePaul.

"That's my understanding," Timberwolves head coach Kurt Rambis said prior to Wednesday night's game against Sacramento.

Theus, who was drafted by the Chicago Bulls in 1978, said he hasn't had a direct conversation with officials from the Chicago school, but said that his agent is handling initial conversations.

"I'm getting calls, but I'm not picking up my phone until after the game," Theus said.

 

From Jerry Zgoda/Star Tribune:

Theus said he turned his phone off this afternoon so he could concentrate on delivering the scouting report for tonight's game and said he didn't know if his agent had set up an interview. A DePaul spokesman told the Chicago Tribune that Theus is interviewing for the job tomorrow.

"It's a great city," said Theus, who once played for the Bulls. "I was there for DePaul was good, so I know it's very capable of being a great program. I know the city of Chicago will support it if you put a good product on the floor. Other than that, I can't say much because I really don't know what's going on yet. I'm literally not answering my phone.

 

From Mike Max/WCCO:

But beyond the trying times, there's at least one player on the team that's worth keeping an eye on, newcomer Darko Milicic, who seems to have found a home in Minnesota.

His reputation as an underachiever high pick is now behind him. He can play without expectations because he's figured out he's a piece of the puzzle, not the focal point.

"It's a good experience, I tried to make the best of it, trying to work hard, get back in shape, and get back to playing basketball," Milicic said.

 

From Dave D'Alessandro/The Star-Ledger:

The way we’re playing, I think there’s a chance we can catch Minnesota," said Brook Lopez, who might have had the best week of his career in leading the Nets to a 3-1 record. "You’ve got to look to achieve something."

From Bob Sansevere/Pioneer Press:

New Jersey Nets have fewer wins than the Wolves, who are finishing one of the worst seasons in NBA history. The Wolves have been offering fans deep discounts on season tickets for next season. It was a nice gesture. An even nicer gesture would be to put together a team that can finish within 20 games of .500. That won't happen this season.

 

From Lindsey Young/Timberwolves site: 

From poker tables to champagne and fine dining, the Target Center was transformed into a miniature Las Vegas for the 2010 Taste of the Timberwolves on Sunday night.

The 14th annual celebration was presented by the Starkey Hearing Foundation and raised funds for the Fastbreak Foundation, which provides and supports hands-on programs that positively impact Minnesota youth.
