Jon Krawczynski

Mavs tried to get Barea from Wolves last year, but teams couldn't agree on compensation. So as @Marc Stein said, Mavs make sense

Jon Krawczynski

Still believe JJ Barea can be an effective player off the bench in this league. Just has to be in the right situation

Zach LaVine

Come meet me tonight @FanHQ in Ridgedale from 7-8pm! Info at FanHQStore.com

Jon Krawczynski

Zimmer says he held a team meeting today to address errors on special teams. Wants to clean those up

Ray Richardson

#Twolves' Flip Saunders on youth movement: "You can't back away from it. ... We think Glenn Robinson can be a pretty good player in league."

Darren Wolfson

ICYMI: The #MNTwins are conducting a 2nd interview with Lovullo today. It's not taking place here in town.

Ray Richardson

#Twolves' Flip Sanders on J.J. Barea buyout: "He did everything we asked. ... With him being third (point) guard, he wanted an opportunity."

Jon Krawczynski

Zimmer on Barr: loves the way he studies. But "it's only been 8 games so we'll hold off on the Canton votes for a while"

Jon Krawczynski

Chad Greenway on Everson Griffen: "He made some plays that guys simply can't make. ... There's plays he makes that are near impossible."

Part 2 of 3-part series on the new guys: Thad Young not too old to remember what it's like to be 19 and new to NBA m.startribune.com/sports/wolves/…

Darren Wolfson

He was never getting to the late 20s in the '07 draft, but FWIW the #MNTwins had Madison Bumgarner top-10 on their board.

Maurice Williams

Well I cracked my phone so I guess its about that time #smh

Nice to finally hear former Gopher Malik Smith's next landing spot: the D-League. Draft is next Saturday. He hopes to get taken. #gophers

Corey Brewer

You ready #twolves fans?! Tweet me a pic in your @Minnesota Timberwolves gear and i'll RT some.

Jerry Zgoda

Btw, JJ and GR3 both practiced with Wolves this afternoon at Target Center

Anthony Bennett

Out here supporting #Minnesota & @bigggmo with my dude @randyrozaay instagram.com/p/uoY7tBqVfm/

Jerry Zgoda

Shorthand on Wolves' decision: Flip wanted him for specific role, but JJ not willing to accept not playing nightly so they mutually agreed..

Ray Richardson

Anticipated #Twolves roster move is: MT @Marc Stein: Minnesota is today finalizing buyout with veteran guard JJ Barea, say ESPN sources.

Darren Wolfson

Exactly (from earlier) >>> RT @Marc Stein: Timberwolves are today finalizing a buyout with veteran guard JJ Barea, say ESPN sources

Maurice Williams

No doubt big bro, u did your thing #mwa #truth connection lolRT @DeionSanders: @Maurice Williams I know u (cont) tl.gd/nh2dkv

Darren Wolfson

Looks like Zimmer's letter buddy from Friday, Alex, was right that the #Vikings had used up all their bad luck.

Jon Krawczynski

Incredible play by Anthony Barr.

Jon Krawczynski

Why is the clock still runnin?

Ray Richardson

On pending move to go from 16 players to official roster of 15, #Twolves president Flip Saunders said, "We'll make a decision tomorrow."

Maurice Williams

Ms stand upRT @RaeSremmurd: Shoutout the legend @DeionSanders for having us at his #PrimePrep (cont) tl.gd/nh2cnm

Jon Krawczynski

Fixed: Worst D in the league and you kick on 4th and short twice. Not showing much confidence in the offense right now

Darren Wolfson

Back to the #NBA: another belief from league people is that Barea will land in Dallas -- roster is currently full, so they'd have to tweak.

Darren Wolfson

I see @nickcafardo has Toronto making Buehrle available via trade. $19M for '15 is too high. But #MNTwins have long admired. Worth watching.

Darren Wolfson

Beliefs from non-#Twolves NBA people: 1) Barea is the last roster move, 2) Rubio ultimately agrees to a 4-year, $52M extension by Friday.

Jerry Zgoda

I'll be joining @SteveThomsonMN on @wccoradio at 5:10 pm Central today previewing Wolves season and Wednesday's opener. Come on by!

Welp, no @MNUnitedFC playoffs for me then. MT @durkeee: @jmarthaler @StribPrepsDavid Due to incident, no more Straw-ber-ritas in press box.

MT @TacoJon1: Classic former UMD coach Jim Malosky line: "It's not your fault for screwing up. It's my fault for putting you in there."

Jerry Zgoda

That last tweet with video link, btw, should have said "win over Bulls" not "Bulls' win," i know who won, just sloppy wording

Jerry Zgoda

Sorry, this got lost in the ether but better late than... Locker-room video from St. Louis & Bulls' win strib.mn/1rB0nwj

Darren Wolfson

Hey, at least the #Gophers are still bowl-eligible :) ... My all 2:30 kickoffs in November dream might've just died. Damn.

Darren Wolfson

Not ready like others to predict a 5-game losing streak to finish the reg. season. But man, thought the #Gophers were done Gophering.

Ray Richardson

#Twolves have waived guard Brady Heslip, @Twolves_PR said. Roster now stands at 16 players before Monday's deadline to get to official 15.

Jerry Zgoda

Wolves waive Brady Heslip. Don't expect final roster spot decision until the Monday afternoon deadline

Darren Wolfson

100% fumble. Just catching up on the #Gophers after a Hell's Kitchen anniversary breakfast. That's slightly better than that 1st half.

Gorgui Dieng

Breakfas before I hit the gym! sqor.com/posts/108e3600… http://t.co/6ABgv9TKSm

Darren Wolfson

Nothing new on Rubio talks. Will repeat: 4/$48M won't get it done + can see that 48 go up when Taylor becomes more involved. No on 5-yr max.

Andy Greder

Enjoyed your call of Blaine-Centennial high school football playoff game, @mattbishop2. And more importantly your news of being cancer free.

Jerry Zgoda

Wolves Daily Saturday video is up from St Louis and a 113-112 comeback win over Bulls startribune.com/video/28039597…

Anybody who thinks this Wolves team is going back to a 20-win season or worse...I just don't see it

Gorgui Dieng

It was good to see you bro and good luck tomorrow sqor.com/posts/3dbab630… http://t.co/GNqCsvbd8K

Jerry Zgoda

So what's your final roster move, Wolves Nation?

Andy Greder

Heading on @wccoradio to give @SteveThomsonMN a report on the thrilling late-second win Blaine had over Centennial in high school football.

Jon Krawczynski

Another win for the Wolves tonight. Seeing some things to build on over the last four games

I have nothing to base this on but intuition & common sense, but I predict Wolves sign Ricky to a 4-yr deal worth $50-52M by Friday

Jerry Zgoda

Rubio scores on layup to end 1st half, has 12 points and 4 assists in 14 minutes and game is tied at 64 at intermission

Jerry Zgoda

Wolves will start Ricky, KMartin, Brewer, Thad and Pek

Flip confirms pre game: Wiggins and Shabazz won't play vs Bulls

Wolves need to submit their roster by 5 pm Monday. Flup said they'll probably take it right to wire, calls decision "very difficult"

Darren Wolfson

Lots of Maddon questions. Been tied up all day. Logic says his agent has or will reach out to #MNTwins. Logic also says he won't land here.

Jerry Zgoda

I always love this when playing Chicago... http://t.co/jrcXvJuNKa
