MSFA hired SMG, a venue management group with experience in soccer, to help determine the "market-rate rent," Michele Kelm-Helgen said.

Andy Greder

Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority chairwoman Michele Kelm-Helgen said #Viking rent would be $20,000 per 17 home @MLS games.

Jerry Zgoda

I'll be doing a live chat Monday at noon on strib.mn/gbbD6X. Just a few things to talk about. You got questions? I'll have answers

Jon Krawczynski

The Timberwolves like Bledsoe, but certainly not enough to bail on the 3-team deal in place. Things go forward as planned

Ray Richardson

Last-second push to somehow entice #Twolves. MT @ESPNNBA: Sources: Suns make late Kevin Love-Eric Bledsoe offer. es.pn/1oZBsWy

Darren Wolfson

Brady Heslip, who impressed the #Twolves in Vegas, switched agents and is now w/ Bernie Lee. He's hoping to get an invite to someone's camp.

Jerry Zgoda

I'll be joining @bobsansevere and @thesuperstar68 on @105theticket at 3:15 pm Central time here talking stamp collecting & other stuff

Darren Wolfson

Spoke briefly to #MNTwins owner Jim Pohlad. He wants the context on Ryan's comments to Sid. So declined when asked for any sort of reaction.

Ricky Rubio

Increible veure el Palau Olimpic aixi de ple. Gracies Badalona!! http://t.co/hRY2pNr4YI

Darren Wolfson

End result on GR-III can very well be him landing in the D-League w/ #Twolves holding rights. Doubt he forces their hand signing the tender.

Darren Wolfson

Add the Hurt brothers (Rochester J-M) to Goanar Mar (DeLaSalle) on the unofficial to Iowa St. on Sept. 6th. #Gophers offered Michael H. Mon.

Jerry Zgoda

I'll be joining @SiriusXMNBA radio in a couple of minutes to talk, I presume, Kevin Love trade, etc. That's SIrius 207, XM 86

Darren Wolfson

To those asking about GR-III: Checking again today and #Twolves still hope to find a spot for him. He's in a holding pattern.

Andy Greder

On #Vikings and MSFA agreement: "It shows the @MLS that we are serious (about a potential franchise)," said Lester Bagley of #Vikings.

Andy Greder

In @MLS agreement: Vikings will pay MSFA $340,000 annual rent and cover game-day expenses for a potential new franchise in stadium.

Andy Greder

#Vikings and Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority reached a "business agreement" for use for a potential @MLS franchise in new stadium.

Jon Krawczynski

Yes. RT @t_demint: will Love to Cavs trade be made official tomorrow? Will it be announced?

Darren Wolfson

Much appreciation. RT @InfraRen: @Darren Wolfson props to you, I definitely remember you being the first to mention Sixers and Thad stuff.

Andy Greder

#Vikings add $46 million to new stadium contribution. Also hearing of parameters w/ Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority on possible @MLS.

Darren Wolfson

Nobody wants him at the moment. So lean no for now. RT @TheKevinJacobs: @ Jon Krawczynski @Darren Wolfson Think JJ gets dealt in separate deal?

Jerry Zgoda

I'll be on @SiriusXMNBA radio at 12:30 today Central time with Jason Goff and Malik Rose talking summer-canning tips & other stuff

Jon Krawczynski

Wolves fans are great. Turn Love, Shved, Moute into Wiggins, Bennett, Young and they ask: But what about JJ? They couldn't keep the pick?

Jerry Zgoda

Wolves bringing Zach LaVine in next week to be part of Wiggins/Bennett/Young intros, a move to include him in team's new young core

Andy Greder

Mmm-mmm-mmm. Digging the reference to Kurt Vonnegut's "Breakfast of Champions" in the movie "Boyhood." Hi ho.

Jerry Zgoda

Remembering one longtime NBA scout who swore in Vegas no way Cavs would trade Wiggins. Predicted he'll be a "stud."

Darren Wolfson

Playing catch-up after a fun Fantasy auction... Nice work by Flip getting Hinkie to budge. He did try for Bennett. #twolves

Ray Richardson

Current 76ers power forward Thaddeus Young in a #Twolves jersey next season looks more and more likely. Maybe as soon as Saturday.

Darren Wolfson

Taking part in the @rshaver11 20-team auction draft. But now distracted badly by the reaction to Sid's column -- quotes right? #mntwins

Jon Krawczynski

And make no mistake, Love to the Cavs make them a monster. Love-LeBron-Irving is going to be electric

Jon Krawczynski

Again, deal is still being finalized. A few final steps to work through. But expected to be completed

Jon Krawczynski

For Flip to get Wiggins, Bennett AND Thad for Love (who was leaving), Shved, Moute and Miami's No. 1, hard to how he could've done better

Ricky Rubio

WIN a signed jersey! RT Ricky Rubio has a new website!! rickyrubio9.com #rickyweb

Ricky Rubio

Today I launch my new website and I want to celebrate it with all of you giving away a signed jersey among all those who do a RT.

Jerry Zgoda

Mystified Philly fans remember the value of Mbah a Moute - Embiid's mentor - in the deal

Jon Krawczynski

And yes as of right now the plan is for a true three team deal

Andy Greder

On Kennys Vargas' homer and double leading a 4-1 win, #MNTwins Ron Gardenhire talked about his calm; Trevor Plouffe liked his pro at-bats.

Jon Krawczynski

There are still some final wrinkles to be ironed out, but that's how everything is shaping up. Optimism on all sides that it gets done

Jon Krawczynski

Educated guess for Saturday: CLE gets Love, MIN gets Wiggins, Bennett, Young, PHI gets Shved, Moute, CLE #1 (from MIA).

Jon Krawczynski

The one Miami gave them, most likely RT @DanBarreiroKFAN: The pick would be one of Cleve's several

Jon Krawczynski

Ditto RT @DanBarreiroKFAN: What I expect by end of day Sat: Love, Shved, LRMAM, No. 1, 4 Wiggins, Bennett, TYoung, cap except. 3-team deal.

Ray Richardson

Story: On Kevin Love trade, the #Twolves have done this before -- and failed. twincities.com/sports/ci_2637…

Andy Greder

#MNTwins Oswaldo Arcia with a run-scoring double to make it 4-1 in eighth.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins starter Phil Hughes' stat line: 7IP, 5H, 1ER, 8K, 0BB, 97 pitches, 71 strikes. In line for win with 3-1 lead entering eighth.

Andy Greder

During Ron Gardenhire's visit to the mound, I read starter Phil Hughes lips to say, "I'm alright. ... It's fine." Not sure what happened.

Jon Krawczynski

Matt Cassel: "I don’t know how much time we’re going to play, but I do anticipate playing a lot."

Darren Wolfson

Putzing around on Final Cut Pro, and here's the result: tinyurl.com/lwregl7 -- There a way to get him a #Twolves jersey?

Andy Greder

Trevor Plouffe doubles down left-field line to score two runs, and the #MNTwins take a 3-1 lead.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins designated hitter Kennys Vargas keeps up his hot-hitting day with a ground-rule double to deepest part of Target Field in sixth.

Andy Greder

Oswaldo Arcia bails out his #MNTwins outfield mate with an assist to end sixth inning. Jordan Schafer's error kept it alive a play before.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins strand runners on second and third base with one out in fifth. Danny Santana pops out; Brian Dozier strikes out.

Andy Greder

Yeah, probably, since he hasn't stolen a base or been caught stealing this year. MT @BennyTheJet38: Hope that was a hit and run with Suzuki.

Andy Greder

A #MNTwins threat here. Jordan Schafer double has two-one, one-out here in the fifth. A Chris Parmelee walk preceded it.

Chase Budinger

I’m not the only one who had a busy off-season, @Sprint just went for a double-double. #doubledouble sprint.co/1rmJjz6

Andy Greder

#Indians Zach Walters homers to right to tie it at 1-1 in the top of the fifth inning. He also went deep Wednesday. #MNTwins

Andy Greder

#MNTwins rookie Kennys Vargas with a solo home run to left field, and the scoreless-inning streak is over. It's his fourth homer of year.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins starter Phil Hughes has six strikeouts through four innings. He's had at least six Ks in his last three starts, with nine on Aug. 5

Andy Greder

A new low point for #MNTwins this season: They have gone 20 innings without a run, eclipsing the 19-inning spell they had Aug. 6-8.

Darren Wolfson

Arkell Bruce (@kamdad), who worked out AW this week: "Andrew's doing great. Excited, ready to play, & learn at the highest level." #twolves

Andy Greder

The #MNTwins have tied their season-worst 19 inning scoreless drought. They go down in order in the second inning.

Andy Greder

The #MNTwins scoreless inning streak is at 18 after Kennys Vargas and Oswaldo Arcia both strikeout to end the first inning.

Darren Wolfson

Also because the question has been asked a lot: league office can take a trade call on Saturday, if given a heads-up (they have). #twolves

Darren Wolfson

I will add that the league-wide belief is that Thad will be a Wolf. Just not with Shabazz involved. #twolves

Darren Wolfson

Told it's highly unlikely Shabazz will go to Philly. Hinkie will have to take Shved/Moute/Miami pick if he wants to move Thad. #twolves

The #MNTwins lineup for Thursday's matinee. They try to avoid an #Indians sweep and -- maybe -- score a run. http://t.co/UZd6qTiLMy

Jerry Zgoda

FSN will carry two preseason games - Oct. 10 home vs Philly, Oct. 22 at Bucks - as well

Jerry Zgoda

FSN announces new season's broadcast sked: will carry 75 of 82 games - 4 others on nat'l TV - and 9 of those are FSN Plus

Ray Richardson

It looks like only three #Twolves games won't be televised this season. FSN, and FSN Plus, will have 75, and four will be on national TV.

Ray Richardson

#Twolves and @fsnorth announced 75 regular-season games will be televised. Same duo -- @JimPeteHoops and @tweetdavebenz -- will call them.

Jon Krawczynski

Not sayin, just sayin RT @mattbishop2: You show up at a practice, she wins MVP. Coincidence?

Jon Krawczynski

The best WNBA writer there is _ AP's @DougFeinberg _ reporting Maya Moore is the MVP. Like I said before, it's her league.

Andy Greder

Video 2: #MNTwins starter Ricky Nolasco had a quality start, but took the loss to Cleveland. tout.com/m/mxrw0u?ref=t… tout.com/m/tb88az?ref=t…

Andy Greder

Video 1: #MNTwins starter Ricky Nolasco had a quality start, but took the loss to Cleveland. tout.com/m/mxrw0u?ref=t…

Andy Greder

Final. #Indians 5, #MNTwins 0. The hometown ballclub hasn't scored in 17 innings. Probably a good thing Thursday's matinee ain't on TV. ...

Andy Greder

Line for #MNTwins starter Ricky Nolasco: 6.2 IP, 8H, 4ER, 1BB, 6K, 105 pitches, 67 strikes. … (Was a bit premature on my last tweet.)

Andy Greder

That's it for #MNTwins starter Ricky Nolasco. He leaves after 104 pitches in the seventh, with Chris Dickerson on second base.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins haven't scored in 14 innings after stranding Kennys Vargas at third to end the sixth. They put up five runs in first Tuesday.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins Oswaldo Arcia hit that ball a mile high, but it was just out No. 1, not his fourth homer in as many games.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins starter Ricky Nolasco with his eighth quality start in his 20th start, but it's 3-0 #Indians mid-sixth.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins starter Ricky Nolasco throws a wild pitch and then Mike Aviles singles in Jason Kipnis. It's 3-0 Indians.

Darren Wolfson

Nolasco looked uncomfortable in pregame tosses. I'll just assume he's still not right. Hard to believe his stuff is this crappy. #mntwins

Andy Greder

#MNTwins starter Ricky Nolasco can't pitch around a leadoff double again. Jason Kipnis doubles off the wall to score Carlos Santana. 2-0.

Andy Greder

For the second straight inning, #MNTwins starter Ricky Nolasco gives up a leadoff double. Can he double his luck and pitch around it?

Andy Greder

#Indians Zach Walters hits a 420-foot home run on the first pitch to give Cleveland a 1-0 lead in the top of the second inning.

Andy Greder

#MNTwins 20-20 club: Brian Dozier joins Larry Hisle (1977), Kirby Puckett (86), Marty Cordova (95), Corey Koskie (01), Torii Hunter (02, 04)

Andy Greder

With that stolen base, #MNTwins Brian Dozier has a 20 home run-20 stolen base season. He is the sixth player to do it in franchise history.

Jerry Zgoda

Just passed the 20,000 follower mark...might be a drop in the proverbial Twitter bucket, but I appreciate every one of you who follows along

Darren Wolfson

Spent the afternoon w/ @BballNvrStops42. Clear that Pitino, Johnson, etc. did a great job on Monday at the unofficial visit. #gophers

Andy Greder

#MNTwins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia's eight homers since July 23 are third most in MLB since then. Chris Carter (11); Giancarlo Stanton (9).

Andy Greder

#MNTwins lineup for Wednesday's game vs. #Indians. Can Oswaldo Arcia keep up power surge? Can Ricky Nolasco rebound? http://t.co/vq20QRc28w

Darren Wolfson

Still a long-shot, but I wouldn't necessarily rule out a Dante Cunningham return. There's been dialogue in the last two days. #twolves

Jerry Zgoda

Just a reminder: if you keep reading Bennett is headed to Philly for Young in forthcoming trade...don't believe it.

Darren Wolfson

No surprise: Zimmer said Blanton will get a long look at K.C. My hunch: he'll start at FS vs. Rams. #vikings
