Press Conference to be rescheduled, "possibly next week"

According to Jerry Zgoda/Star Tribune, owner Glen Taylor canceled today's press conference introducing the players from the Garnett trade because he "wanted to be "as respectful as possible" to people injured or killed in the collapse."

Taylor's granddaughter was on the freeway when the I-35W bridge collapsed.

"She was going over the bridge, but she called," Taylor said, his voice breaking off.

On the press conference:
Newly acquired Al Jefferson, Ryan Gomes and Sebastian Telfair were at Target Center, but are expected to leave town today. Taylor said the players' introductions will be rescheduled, possibly next week.
