I never knew that he's from the area. Sounds cool to me. He can tell Love why MPLS is better than LA - More history!, lol From the article..(originally tweeted by Jerry Z..that dude IS ON IT!): Former Augsburg College All-American Devean George, a first-round pick of the Los Angeles Lakers in 1999, said he has been invited to the Minnesota Timberwolves training camp and is being considered for a player development role with the NBA club if he doesn't make the 15-man roster. George, a Minneapolis native, went through an individual workout today with Timberwolves trainers at the team's practice facility at Target Center. "I want to stay home and work with the young guys here," said George, an 11-year NBA veteran. "I don't want to go overseas or look for a spot with another team (NBA)." George, 34, said he has had talks with Timberwolves president of basketball operations David Kahn about working with the team during the 2011-12 season, which was reduced to 66 regular-season games because of the lockout. The Timberwolves are waiting for the league to announce the schedule for all 30 teams to determine plans for training camp. The league set Friday as a tentative date for teams to open training camp.
