We are proud to announce David Blatt as the next coach of your Minnesota Timberwolves. We are excited to have David join the organization. It was not the most comfortable choice, but we are confident it is the best move to bring Minnesota back into contention and build for the future. David is one of the most successful and decorated coaches in Europe. We are confident that his success in many situations, including championships in nine different leagues, will make for an smooth transition into the NBA. Notable recent success includes coaching the Russian National Team to a bronze medal in London, and the fresh Euroleague championship, coaching Maccabi Tel Aviv to victory over Real Madrid.
"I am honored to have a chance to coach at the highest level, and prove that I belong with the best coaches in the world. I am eager to work with the skilled roster we have on the Wolves, and excited to play a part in bringing this team to the next level." David said in his press conference. He added, "I truly believe our team can be a contender, not in four years, but this season."
We are glad excited to have David and want to welcome him to the Timberwolves organization.
