Darren Wolfson: Solid group of guys in town that includes Wiggins, Teague, RoCo (in addition to those pictured). No doubt in my mind that Saunders will get these guys together for workouts way more often this off-season than ones in the past. #Twolves #AllEyesNorth

Two​ weeks​ ago,​ following​ the Timberwolves’ loss to the Pistons,​ Taj Gibson​ wanted​ rookie teammate​ Josh​ Okogie​​ to meet an old chum. After postgame duties concluded and the troubles of that night’s efforts became an afterthought, the two moseyed back to the loading dock at Little Caesars Arena toward the team bus. And as Gibson has grown accustomed to throughout his playing career in the Midwest, a familiar smile was waiting. From there, the 33-year-old Gibson, a 10-year vet, knew the order of operations: a hug, nearly a minute of small talk to catch up and then a parting gift of his choice. The 20-year-old Okogie, in contrast, mingled with the cautiousness and confusion that the situation deserved.
“It’s crazy because sometimes, when we get a rookie or somebody, it’s like, ‘She’s just a random lady?’ Nah, nah,” Gibson said. “I introduced her to Josh, and he was like, ‘She’s just a lady that makes cookies?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, man. She’s a really nice lady. Her cookies are really good.’ “By the end of the bus ride, we were on the bus for like 20 minutes, and he finished his whole box of cookies in those quick minutes. He was like, ‘Her cookies are bomb! Her cookies are fire!’ I was like, ‘Yeah, she does that every time.’”
