Stiemsma's agent says Wolves have called him up from D-League...Team summons all their regional scouts...Wolves CEO wants to transform arena "into a model of sustainability "
From Ridiculous Upside;
Former Wisconsin Badger Greg Stiemsma has been called up the Minnesota Timberwolves according to agent Mike Naiditch. This move also likely locks him up for the NBA Summer League schedule as well as next season's preseason roster.
Steinsma's agent tells us tonight that the contract will be signed before the Wolves play their final game of the season Wednesday at home against Detroit.
He'll likely suit up for that game, and be with the Wolves for their summer league team.
The Wolves again hold the first pre-draft workouts for NBA teams at Target Center in late May.
The four-day workouts will feature prospects expected to be taken in the middle of the first round or later. Lottery prospects will work out with teams individually later.
The Wolves summoned all their regional scouts -- former assistant GM Jim Stack, former assistant coach Dean Cooper and former Gophers assistant Milt Barnes -- as well as current front-office executives Fred Hoiberg, Jerry Sichting and Rob Babcock to San Antonio for a Monday afternoon scouting meeting that was their first full gathering since early in the season.

From Shaun Powell/NBA.com: After early cold spell, Crawford warms to sixth man role
Kevin Love, Timberwolves: Like Ginobili, he started more games than most genuine sixth-men but, in a perfect world, that's his role for Minnesota. He's the Wolves' top rebounder and second-leading scorer, and if they ever get good, K-Love's value to the team will only increase. Very clever around the court, which offsets his lack of athleticism and strength.
From Jay Weiner/MinnPost:
But don't worry. The Timberwolves aren't asking for a new arena. In fact, Timberwolves CEO Rob Moor, who, among other things, oversees strategy and facility issues for team owner Glen Taylor, wants Target Center to be known as a building that can adapt, not be disposed of, that can be an example of healthy longevity, not sports facility obsolescence.
