There was a lot that Warriors guard D’Angelo Russell liked about the Timberwolves as he was going through the free agency process this summer. One of his best friends is center Karl-Anthony Towns. The coaching staff added an assistant he liked from his time with the Nets in Pablo Prigioni, and the front office had some familiar faces as well. It was trending that Russell might join the Wolves in a sign-and-trade, but he ultimately decided to go with the Warriors. Why? Well, at least in part, you can blame the Minnesota weather.
Hanson spent the last four season on the Pelicans staff and according to the Pelicans’ website, Hanson worked “extensively” with All-Star Anthony Davis when Davis was in New Orleans. Hanson’s potential hiring would come after the Wolves brought in David Vanterpool from Portland to be Saunders’ associate head coach, Pablo Prigioni from Brooklyn to be an assistant and Bryan Gates for his second stint as an assistant with the Wolves.
“Pablo Prigioni is a great addition to our staff,” said Timberwolves Head Coach Ryan Saunders. “He brings a wealth of experience, both in the NBA and international, and a unique understanding of the game. He will make a significant impact in the areas of our offense, in-game strategizing, opponent preparation and player development. We look forward to his positive contributions and welcome him and his family to our Timberwolves family.”
