Glen Taylor Rumors
The Minnesota Timberwolves and the NBA Development League today announced the final sale of majority ownership in the Iowa Energy to Glen Taylor. The Wolves are now one of 25 teams to own or operate an NBA Development League affiliate.
“I’m a little bit concerned because it’s not logical to me what happened, that we just went along and we were playing good and we fell back into maybe old habits or old style of play,” Taylor said. “I have no explanation for that. I think it’s my job to make sure that I sit down with the coaches, Scott, everybody and ask them what do they think went wrong there.”
Taylor said that Pekovic, who at one point was one of the more unique and bruising big men in the league, might have played his last game due to long-term injuries. “I don’t think so,” he said when asked if Pekovic would play again. “I mean, that’s for him and his doctors but just listening to what the doctors have told me and what he has said, I’m not expecting it in our plans going ahead. We won’t rely on him.”
The price tag on the Target Center renovations increased to at least $138 million with the addition of at least $9 million from the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx owner, the professional basketball teams announced in a news release Tuesday.
The latest infusion from Timberwolves-Lynx owner Glen Taylor will go toward fortifying the building’s Wi-Fi, new seats, a new railing in the lower bowl, more digital signs and a new skyway off the back of the arena. Taylor, who also owns the Star Tribune, will contribute another $9 million to $12 million.
