When it became apparent the Utah Jazz had no desire to keep Derrick Rose following the blockbuster trade with the Cleveland Cavaliers, the Minnesota Timberwolves quickly emerged as a potential suitor in rumors. However, per Sid Hartman of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, owner Glen Taylor said the T-Wolves currently have no plans to fill their available roster spot. “IF WE COULD FIND THE RIGHT PERSON TO FIT INTO OUR TEAM AND HAVE SOME ABILITY TO PLAY, GET OUT THERE ON THE FLOOR, WE ARE CERTAINLY GOING TO LOOK AT IT. WE KEPT ONE SLOT OPEN ALL YEAR LONG JUST IN CASE THAT POSSIBILITY OCCURRED. BUT AS OF TODAY WE DON’T HAVE ANYBODY IN MIND.” The connection between Rose and Minnesota is obvious, since Tom Thibodeau is the head coach of the Timberwolves.
