Timberwolves Start Laying Off Employees

44

"While the Minnesota Timberwolves continued the process of hiring arguably their most important employee, they told some on the business side of their operations that their services won’t be needed during the NBA lockout. The Timberwolves laid off at least 11 business side employees on Tuesday, many of them in the sales department, as the effects of the NBA lockout start to sink in across the league. A person with knowledge of the situation told The Associated Press of the moves. The person requested anonymity because the Timberwolves are not discussing personnel matters. So far, the basketball side of the operations have been spared, with president of basketball operations David Kahn bringing in Mike Woodson on Tuesday to interview for the head coaching opening. The Wolves are at least the third team in the league to start laying off employees. The Charlotte Bobcats laid off at least seven last week, including radio play-by-play announcer Scott Lauer. The Detroit Pistons fired 15 employees earlier this month." - By JON KRAWCZYNSKI, AP Sports Writer
