Wolves Updates 6/15

Kent Youngblood/Star Tribune on the trade with Houston:
McHale also suggested that it is only the first in what could be a series of moves designed to reshape a Wolves roster that has underachieved the past few seasons.

"We have more stuff we're planning on doing," McHale said. "So I'm sure I'll be talking to you guys again very soon."

From Sid Hartman:
However, even with the present roster, you can't convince McHale that the Wolves are far behind the teams that made it to the playoffs this year.

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press:
The Timberwolves are bringing in four forwards considered potential lottery picks for predraft workouts Friday at Target Center: Florida's Corey Brewer, Kansas' Julian Wright, Georgia Tech's Thaddeus Young and Florida State's Al Thornton.

From Charley Walters/Pioneer Press:
Florida's 6-foot-9 Corey Brewer, who is scheduled to work out this morning for the Timberwolves at Target Center, seems the favorite to be the Wolves' first-round pick (No. 7 overall) in the June 28 draft. The Wolves are also high on Kansas' 6-8 Julian Wright, who also works out for them today.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski/Yahoo Sports, the Wolves are one of the teams "believed to hold interest in" Sebastian Telfair.

From Judd Zulgad/Star Tribune:
The Pohlads, by the way, weren't the first owners of a local sports franchise to look at buying B-96 from Washington, D.C.- based Radio One. Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor also explored the subject several months back.
