Wasn't that long ago Pablo was a 30yr old rookie with the Knicks (or was it the Rockets?). Interesting he got into coaching so fast.

Love it! Some young and new blood coming to the organization with Vanderpool and Prigioni. Rosas is killing it so far.

When I saw the name Pablo Prigioni I was thinking I know that name but from where? Sure enough he was the Argentinian PG in the 2008 Olympics on that Bronze medal team. He was a tough tenacious player.

He had a limited stint in the NBA too with the Knicks, Rockets and Clippers.

Gersson Rosas, Sachin Gupta, Gianluca Pascucci, David Vanterpool, Pablo Prigioni.

It’s a global game and the Wolves are assembling a global staff.

What a breath of fresh air! I'm loving how this is coming together.

Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly reported that the Wolves were interested in Real Madrid head coach Pablo Laso for a spot on their bench. The candidate the Wolves had targeted was Pablo Prigioni.

Neither Saunders or Vanterpool have Houston connections

He's also not just taking people from Houston's current front office, but rather people he's worked with in the past that he knows, trusts and believes are a good fit for the vision he has for the organization.

This is such an exciting change from the last few seasons.

Keen to see what Rosas, Saunders and co can build here with some fresh, modern thinking eyes.

Fully agreed my friend.

I was a full on Kahn kool aid drinker. That should tell anyone reading the following to take it with a grain of salt.

Been a fan since '89 and I'm never again going to blindly rubber stamp everything this hamstringed franchise does. Anyone who still does after all this time, God love 'em. Reminds me of politics where one's selected favorite can do no wrong, no matter the evidence.

There are major red flags on multiple fronts already, not the least of which in the opening press conference when the owner (who i am grateful for for his keeping the franchise in MN) stated he will field recommendations from the new POBO.

Anyone who fully believes Saunders really wanted to obtain Lowe/Wittman, once again, God love 'em. That said I could be wrong.

I understand the glass half full mentality and subscribe to it, but when it comes to the Wolves franchise, a large dose of reality needs to be entertained as alluded to in your wise post.

As a fan since '89 I'm finally too jaded to trust anything other than wins over losses.

I've been a mega fan since '89 too and I see something different and special going on this time.

I wasn't a Thibs fan but got talked into it. This time it's different. I'm loving the collaborative process.

Klomp quoted Johnny K’s recent Athletic article a couple pages back denying that they attempted to bring Lowe in. I’d bet the same goes for Wittman.

Pablo Prigioni spent last season being a players development coach for the Nets. D’angelo Russell had a nice farewell post for him, so he must’ve been liked there. I don’t know about his impact, but the Nets played really good basketball last year. He’s going to take care of the offense.
There’s no point in grabbing top talent if you don’t have the correct coaching to develop them, right?
