Rookies-to-be Karl-Anthony Towns and Tyus Jones will be joined by some familiar faces to past Wolves Summer League squads.

Roster Review: Othyus Jeffers (is a real human being)

We’re kicking off our offseason coverage here at A Wolf Among Wolves with a comprehensive roster review of the team from this past season, looking at how each player’s 2013-14 went and what we see for them going forward. One player a day for the next couple weeks, starting with the bench and rolling up […]

We'll Miss You, Chris Johnson

It’s old news by now that over the weekend the Wolves waived Othyus Jeffers and Lorenzo Brown, instead retaining Robbie Hummel and A.J. Price.

Wolves add Lorenzo Brown, A.J. Price, Othyus Jeffers, Robbie Hummel as training camp hopefuls

The team has added players to the roster for training camp purposes and three of the four names are pretty familiar to fans. The Minnesota Timberwolves announced yesterday that they signed three players. Those three players were […]

Las Vegas Summer League: Timberwolves 81, D-League Select 83

Here’s what an NBA Summer League game can give you a clear picture of: nothing. Put together a couple of Wolves rookies (Shabazz Muhammad, Gorgui Dieng), a guy who played overseas last year (Robbie Hummel), the brother of a hot-shooting Golden State Warrior (Mychel Thompson—who didn’t even see the floor), an assistant coach’s son (Luke […]
