The Minnesota Timberwolves season came to an end on that 15-game losing streak and an NBA-worst 65 losses. With that, comes another lottery-bound offseason and another quick start to the summer workouts for our Timberwolves.
Let’s take a quick look at some of our Wolves players offseason plans and workouts. The following is a list of workout plans according to Yahoo Sports! for our Wolves.
-Darko Milicic & Darko Milicic have made plans to meet back home in Europe this summer. Darko has said he intends to improve his overall conditioning and endurance by playing some 5-on-5, rather than what he’s mostly done in the past: running and weight lifting. GM David Kahn said in his end of the year press conference that he wouldn’t be sure what Darko’s role with the team would be next year, all depending on the work he puts in this summer. Assistant coach Bill Laimbeer has made plans to travel to Serbia this summer to oversee some of those workouts with Pek and Darko.
-Michael Beasley has made plans to do some of his offseason workouts in Los Angeles this summer. The plan is to meet up with teammate Wesley Johnson and possibly Kobe Bryant. Wes & Kobe worked out a few times last summer and Wes hopes to do that again, only more “extensively”. Johnson and Bryant both share the same agent: Rob Pelinka.
-All-Star Kevin Love has made plans to also workout in Los Angeles for the majority of the offseason. As with the past few summers he’ll be meeting up with friends and fellow Team USA teammates Russell Westbrook & Derrick Rose. Love, of course, also attended UCLA before making the jump to the NBA.
That’s all I’ve got for you for now. Throughout the summer, we’ll bring you more updates on these offseason workout updates as well as updates on: the CBA, Coaching Updates, free agent targets, transactions/acquisitions and all other news-Timberwolves, all summer long. For now, thanks for reading and GO WOLVES!
