Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor has forged a sound working relationship with minority owners Marc Lore and Alex Rodriguez, proven by their successful recruitment of Denver’s Tim Connelly to head up their front office, The Athletic’s Jon Krawczynski notes. Taylor allowed the duo to design an offer that would be very difficult for the Nuggets to match. Taylor enjoys the ambition and energy of Lore and A-Rod and has gained confidence in their ability to complete a major transaction.
- The press conference involving Nuggets president/governor Josh Kroenke has been postponed after he recently tested positive for COVID-19. He’s one of several staff members to test positive this week, according to the team.
