After completing the long-rumored trade that sent Love to the Cavaliers and brought Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young to Minnesota, the Timberwolves have sold more than 300 full season-ticket packages in the last week. That beats the previous record in 2011 that was set when Ricky Rubio announced that he was coming over from Spain to play for the team. "The organization, from president-level on down has just been re-energized," Timberwolves senior vice president and chief revenue officer Ryan Tanke said.

Rubio is now the new face of franchise. A face of franchise requests a contract as face of franchise. In your opinion which is Rubio's value at this time? Can Saunders consider the idea to let him free at the end of the season and wait for offers to match? Darren Wolfson: Wiggins will be the face of the franchise, in my opinion. Answered some of this above. But his value at the time is what only the Wolves are willing to pay him: 4-years, $43 million. His value next summer will be what the league will pay him and then the Wolves will decide if they want to match the offer. And yes, I think at the moment the Wolves are plenty fine with letting another team set the market next summer. Sportando
