Sessions and Brewer take part in Timberwolves Caravan and more
Koufos had been traded from Utah to Minnesota. The Jazz spent a first-round pick on the one-and-done former Ohio State big man. Head Coach Jerry Sloan isn’t keen on playing rookies, and less so on 19-year-olds, and Koufos’ playing time was limited.
"I understand it’s a business, and I feel confident wherever I end up," Koufos said. "I feel like I’ll be very successful in this league as long as I stay focused and continue to work. This is a one-day-at-a-time league."
From KAAL TV:
The Timberwolves have made several changes to their roster since the end of the season, but a few familiar faces showed up at Owatonna high school Monday.
Minnesota guards Corey Brewer and Ramon Sessions and team mascot Crunch are a part of the Timberwolves summer caravan, which visits several towns outside the Twin Cities every year.
The Timberwolves report sales of about 400 new season tickets from their "pay the pick" promotion that priced seats based on their NBA lottery pick (No. 4). That means those season tickets sell for $172 apiece.
The Wolves say they have an overall season-ticket renewal rate of about 85 percent on a full-season equivalent of nearly 6,000 tickets.
