Glen Taylor’s Three-Point Play

How Glen Taylor turned the Timberwolves from a league laughingstock into a salable commodity in just three seasons. Just a little more than three years ago, the fortunes of the Minnesota ...

Lynx Owner Glen Taylor Looking for His Successor

According to the AP, Glen Taylor, owner of the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx, is looking for a minority partner who would eventually be his successor. This transition would be along the lines of the Wizards/Mystics/Capitals ownership transition from Abe Pollin to Ted Leonsis which took place from 1999 to 2010. Obviously, the biggest asset in this ownership transition would be the Timberwolves NBA team, and like many other articles of this type, the Lynx isn't even mentioned, but I'd say that it's safe to assume that they're on sale with the Wolves. What would do you think or would like to see with the ownership situation of the Lynx basketball team?

Glen Taylor Is One Happy Pappy

The owner of the Minnesota Lynx, Glen Taylor, can bask in the glow in the participation in a WNBA Finals after many years of the opposite of success. Taylor is a self-made millionaire that bought the Timberwolves way back when and then the idea of a women's NBA came up and he was all over it much to the dismay, at times, to colleagues. "We understood right from the beginning it would cost us some money but um, I just think it's the right thing to do." Taylor said. He gets high marks in my book, and Candice Wiggins'. Worth a read.

NORTH MANKATO — Glen Taylor has replaced daughter Jean Taylor as the top official for North Mankato-based Taylor Corporation. A recent announcement to some Taylor Corporation employees said Jean Taylor was resigning her post as CEO and president of the privately held company and that Glen Taylor would replace her. Officials with Taylor Corporation did not return messages seeking comment. According to a biography on the Taylor Corporation website — which was removed from the site by Monday afternoon — Jean Taylor began serving as CEO in 2007. She had previously held president and vice-president duties since 1994.

Just a day after I believed the Wolves had narrowed their search to former Indiana GM David Kahn, Glen Taylor and Rob Moor apparently continue it anew with a candidate who was either interviewed today or soon will be. I heard it was a candidate from within the Northwest division. The first guy I thought of was Rex Chapman in Denver, who was with the organization for a while about three years ago. But I don’t think it’s him. Might not be from within the division either. Sorry, but I don’t think it’s Bill Simmons, either. About the only thing that seems certain is that this will go on through the weekend. ... I heard this evening Taylor and Moor are cooling on one candidate the more they learn about him. Sure sounds to me like that could be Kahn, who without a doubt those the owner and team CEO were (are?) very serious about. Randy Pfund has remained quiet since he called me back Saturday and I haven’t heard that he’s out so I’d say he’s still a possibility.
