That wouldn't be good. They could use the Target Center renovations as a ploy to move the team to Seattle. /Conspiracy.

“@MarkRemme: Stern said been very involved in Glen Taylor's plan for an orderly succession of team ownership down the road.”


Very involved = Rigged Lottery?!?!

Michael Heisley evidently had a stroke within the last week. Haven't seen any news about how bad it was. Hopefully, he'll be ok, but if he was in Taylor's ownership transition plans, it could throw a big wrench in the plan.

I don't want a guy who has a history of moving franchises buying our team anyways.

With all due respect to Heisley and his current health status but as Lord Baldric said it well, I wouldn't want an owner like him anyway.

Flip Saunders representing investment group looking to buy the Timberwolves, would likely become head of basketball operations:

Well we'd be looking back to the only winning period in franchise history, so I guess that's something.
