MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves’ pre-draft preparations have a new look this summer.
President David Kahn has divided the duties that were held by former assistant GM Tony Ronzone between director of basketball operations Rob Babcock and director of player personnel R.J. Adelman.
Ronzone and the Timberwolves parted ways last year after two seasons on the job. Kahn did not fill his position, and has instead leaned more on Babcock and Adelman, who is the son of head coach Rick Adelman.
Babcock put together this week’s prospect summit. Representatives from all 30 teams came to Minneapolis to watch two days of workouts featuring players likely to be drafted in the second round or signed as free agents.
Kahn credited the reorganized staff for pulling off the complex arrangements.
