Wolves announce official traning camp roster, with no real surpris.....WHERE IS KEVIN LOVE??— Tim Faklis (@timfaklis) September 26, 2014
Oh, he's a funny, funny guy that Tim Faklis.
Indeed, the Minnesota Timberwolves announced the training camp roster this morning. Kevin Love is not on the list.
The Wolves will send 18 players to Mankato on Monday, after the team completes its Media Day activities. Camp will open with the Dunks After Dark event taking place at Bresnan Arena inside (Glen) Taylor Center on campus. The first 4,000 fans in attendance will receive a black Dunks After Dark themed t-shirt. Admittance is free. Doors open to the public for Dunks After at 11:00 PM.
To those planning to drive from the Twin Cities to Mankato Mon night for #DunksAfterDark, recommend getting down there early Mon night.— Timberwolves PR (@Twolves_PR) September 26, 2014
Here's the roster.
It is what you expected it to be.
The Wolves must cut the roster from 18 to 15 prior to the season opener on Tuesday, October 29th. Kyrylo Fesenko and Brady Heslip, two names some may not recognize, played on the Wolves' Summer League team earlier this summer.
It would shock me and many others if either Heslip or Fesenko are not cut before the season. Of the remaining 16, JJ Barea and rookie Glenn Robinson III are two who have been marked as those fighting over the 15th-and-final roster spot.
There are few who believe Barea will remain with the Wolves much longer, according to a poll performed on this website last Thursday. Here are the results of said poll.
