Timberwolves Owner Not Worried About Contraction

The head boss in Minny did the smart thing by assuring his fanbase that his team won’t be wiped off the NBA map. From the Star Tribune: “Before Wednesday’s season opener, Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor said his team’s fans need not worry about something that probably is negotiating posture and concept for now. ‘I can say that Minnesota is not one of the teams that would be contracted, nor do we expect that in the future,’ Taylor said, sounding somewhat surprised at the question. Taylor said there’s ‘a serious problem in that we have to make the league more profitable’ and said contraction was offered as a possible solution at last week’s NBA Board of Governors meetings. He also said that few teams would be interested in the idea.”
