Wolves Updates 6/13 Part 2


Kahn on Sunday morning's draft workout,  DraftExpress: Cousins won't workout for Wolves, Flynn excited to return to Syracuse and more

 

From the Associated Press:

The Minnesota Timberwolves are hosting several draft prospects in a workout at Target Center on Sunday.

Cal forward Jamal Boykin, UConn forward Gavin Edwards, Texas center Dexter Pittman, Baylor forward Ekpe Udoh and Marshall center Hassan Whiteside are scheduled to attend.

 

From Jonah Ballow/Timberwolves site: Sunday AM Draft Workout

Question: Any players stand out?
Kahn: I thought Dexter Pittman really demonstrated a physicality about himself. We saw the things Hassan Whiteside does well, the timing on shot-blocking, and the potential is kind of oozing out of him. I thought the other three guys in their own way had their moments.

Question: How does Pittman compare to DaJuan Blair and Glen "Big Baby" Davis? Is there a place in this league for a big bruiser in this league?
Kahn: Absolutely, he (Pittman) is actually much taller than both the guys you mentioned (Blair and Davis). He's 6' 11", he's a center, and in this league there's a dearth of centers, especially those that have that kind of size and physicality about them. He's very intriguing...He has lost some dramatic amount of weight and it appears as if he's still losing because every time I see him he looks a little bit better. That's a positive sign that he really wants to be in this league.

 

From DraftExpress twitter account:

Hearing Cousins won't work out in Minnesota. Apparently they have their mind made up on Wes Johnson. Jives w/everything else we're hearing.

 

From Mike Waters/The Post-Standard:

Flynn hopes to get a similar reaction when he returns to the Carrier Dome as his Minnesota Timberwolves will face the Detroit Pistons in a preseason game on Friday, Oct. 15.

"I was at that game when Carmelo played at the Dome,’’ Flynn said. "I saw the ovation that Melo got. I remember how the fans showed their appreciation for him and for what he did at Syracuse; not just winning the national championship but in helping to build the Melo Center.

"It was so cool to watch,’’ he added. "Now, I can’t wait to go back and see the fans and show them how much I appreciate them.’’

 

From Jason Quick/The Oregonian: Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan looking to shake up his staff


It is also believed that Bickerstaff’s son, John-Blair, will be added to the Blazers staff. John-Blair has spent the past three seasons as an assistant with the Minnesota Timberwolves after serving two years as an assistant in Charlotte. John-Blair played two seasons of college basketball at Oregon State before transferring to the University of Minnesota.
