Rashad McCants is one of the invited guests for Khalid El-Amin's Celebrity Basketball Invitational this weekend.

Mike Trudell/Timberwolves site with notes on the summer league team's Tuesday scrimmage against Milwaukee.

Fred Hoiberg on the team's potential offseason moves:
"We're talking to certain guys," Hoiberg said, preferring not to name names. "The thing for us right now is we're trying to figure out who the best person to add to our roster would be."

According to Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press, Bracey Wright, an unrestricted free agent currently playing for Denver's summer league team, is not expected to return next season.

Travis Heath/HoopsWorld on Randy Foye being "ready to take on more responsibility as a leader on the floor." Foye says not to count the team out because he feels they're "one of the best teams in our division."

Mike Kahn/Fox Sports on trading Garnett:
It may not happen this summer, but if he doesn't get coaxed into an extension, they'd be crazy not to work out some deal by the February trade deadline. He's 31 and his value won't go up after this year.

The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced they will be conducting auditions for the 2007-2008 Dunk Team on July 26th at Target Center.

Fred Hoiberg, Wolves summer league player Mateen Cleaves, and former Wolves summer league player Paul Shirley are expected to play in the Barry Stevens Hilton Magic Celebrity All-Star game in Ames, IA on July 21.
