Minnesota Timberwolves Rumors
He is getting both assists and points on offense and he is getting to the free-throw line, too, 23 times in all over the past four games. “It’s hard to remember when I felt this confident,” he said. “I think this is the best two weeks of my NBA career. I’m more consistent, I would say. Maybe I’ve had better weeks before. But as a feeling? This is good.”
“I think he’s playing better,” Thibodeau said. “Him being hurt early on was a setback. But now he’s healthy, and he’s making teams play him honestly. He’s making some shots, getting to the free-throw line. But he has to show the consistency, day after day, game after game.”
Minneapolis city sources told 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS the Target Center renovation is growing by an additional $21 million. Sources said the bulk of the extra costs will be paid by the Minnesota Timberwolves. Sources also said the team’s $10-15 million additions will include a new skyway between Target Center and one of the downtown parking ramps and new, more comfortable seats in the 19,000-seat arena. Sources said the remaining $2-5 million will come from sale tax refunds and energy efficiency rebates the city is receiving from the state of Minnesota.
The total budget for Target Center’s makeover was set at $129 million just before the renovation started in the summer of 2016, with the city’s contribution $74 million of that total package. KSTP tried reaching Timberwolves ownership, for comment, but we were unable to reach them Monday night. The NBA team is expected to announce these added improvements to the project Tuesday morning.
