Wolves Updates 5/2

Charley Walters/Pioneer Press on owner Glen Taylor:
Taylor isn't going outside the organization, but he wants more input from others in the front office.

He also said Tuesday that the Wolves would seek to improve by building around Kevin Garnett with Randy Foye, Rashad McCants and Craig Smith. Other players could be traded.

"But it's a little hard right now (during the playoffs) to talk to other teams," Taylor said. "We're looking at scenarios and options."

Mike James on an academic study of the NBA which said that "during the 13 seasons from 1991 through 2004, white referees called fouls at a greater rate against black players than against white players."

“If that’s going on, then it’s something that needs to be dealt with,” James said. “But I’ve never seen it.”

From Mike Max/WCCO:
Timberwolves head coach Randy Wittman has already started to re-organize his assistant coaches.

From Mike Waldner/The Daily Breeze:
Garnett is No. 1 on the wish list of those who are positive they know how to get the Lakers rolling once again. Then comes Kidd followed by J. O'Neal.
