Wolves Updates 4/25


Jefferson's court appearance rescheduled, Sessions in Myrtle Beach to talk at cousin's basketball camp, Kahn garners no votes for exec of the year and more

 

From David Wetzel/The Sun News: Myrtle Beach's Ramon Sessions and Akeem Hemingway still have passion for hoops

Growing up, Akeem Hemingway and Ramon Sessions did whatever it took to be able to play basketball.

The cousins would concoct milk crates or bicycle rims into baskets so they could play in Hemingway's backyard. And they would play all day.

It was all fun and games until the clothes got dirty.

"I had a clothesline in the backyard, and they would be back there playing basketball all day long, I mean all day long," said Hemingway's mother, Carolyn. "And you know how dry it is ... dusty. They would mess up my clothes on the line. And they would be out there all day long - just to play basketball."

 

From Ira Winderman/Pro Basketball Talk:  Hammond as Executive of the Year because less is more

Detroit's Joe Dumars, who added Villanueva (and Ben Gordon), did not receive a single vote. Neither did the Timberwolves' David Kahn, who added Sessions.

 

From Ray Richardson/Pioneer Press:

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Al Jefferson's court appearance for his Feb. 28 arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence was rescheduled to May 5.

Jefferson, the Timberwolves' leading scorer (17.4), was originally scheduled to appear Friday in Hennepin County District Court, but a county clerk said the change was made because of an "attorney conflict."

 

From Charley Walters/Pioneer Press:

Ex-Bloomington Jefferson basketball star Cole Aldrich's agent, Jeff Schwartz, also represents the Timberwolves' Kevin Love and Al Jefferson.

 

Also from Walters:

Gene Allen, a Twin Cities sports business attorney who has worked on a number of stadium, ballpark and arena deals, including the Gophers' TCF Bank Stadium, figures digital signage advertising on the North exterior wall of Target Center, which would be visible to Twins spectators at Target Field, could generate in excess of $15,000 per month for the Timberwolves.
