The Minnesota Timberwolves made a massive move on Monday when they announced the hiring of Tim Connelly as their newest President of Basketball Operations. The move had been reported as in the works last week and came together, culminating with Connelly visiting with Glen Taylor. The move puts Connelly as the number one decision-maker in the Timberwolves' front office. Many wondered what would happen to Sachin Gupta if the Wolves ownership group brought in a new face. Well, according to the press release, Gupta is not going anywhere either. “Connelly will work closely with Timberwolves Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Sachin Gupta, as well as Head Coach Chris Finch...” Connelly previously worked for the Denver Nuggets as their President of Basketball Operations, a role that he assumed in 2017. He was with the Nuggets as their Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations for four years prior to that promotion. On today's episode of the Bleav in Timberwolves Podcast, Ryan Blackburn, Site Manager for our sister site Denver Stiffs, joins Brendan Hedtke and Doug West to give insight as to what the hiring means for the Timberwolves. Ryan graciously brings his wealth of knowledge and insight from his time covering the Nuggets. The trio breaks down the move from multiple angles, covering a variety of topic, including: Connelly's history in front offices His personality and demeanor How aggressive he will be His strengths and weakness as a decision maker His success in the draft What type of relationship he may have with Chris Finch How he and Gupta can lean on each other Denver fans' reactions to the news & more!
Introduction: The Timberwolves hired executive Tim Connelly away from Denver to be their President of Basketball Operations for a reported 5 years and $40 million plus an ownership stake in the team. It's a big-time move, but it's not without risk. While Connelly has a track record of building a team primarily through the draft, the Nuggets haven't even played for a championship let alone won a title in recent years. 8:00: The Star Tribune's Jeff Day joins host Michael Rand for an examination of his story on the inner workings of the Gophers volleyball program. 32:00: The Twins won again, and the vibe in the clubhouse is positively giddy.
With over 20 million people from 20 different countries across the most populated continent on the planet, you can make a pretty good case that the very concept of an “Asian-American” is incredibly oversimplified. There are some experiences however, that happen to unite Asian-Americans. For example, almost any Asian-American working in sports media can tell you about their shared experiences, from media personalities to NBA point guards…to the guy who ran the Minnesota Timberwolves until yesterday, Sachin Gupta. As part of Asian American, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander Heritage Month, SportsCenter anchor Kevin Negandhi tells us the story of the first Indian-American to ever be President of Basketball Operations for an NBA team, why the smartest people in the NBA respect him so much, and what his still-unfolding journey says about all of us.

Dan Barreiro opens the show and spends much of the first hour reacting to the breaking news that the Wolves big swing paid off and they have hired Tim Connelly from the Nuggets as their new President of Basketball Operations.
Matt Moore reacts to the news that Tim Connelly is leaving the Denver Nuggets to take the job as President of Basketball Operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves. The move doesn't hurt the Nuggets short-term. Tim Connelly made mistakes like everyone does. Connelly's move doesn't make the Wolves an instant contender. But the process of losing another excellent executive over money sends a message from ownership that's very clear, and that message is that they are only willing to do what it takes to win... to a point.

Of course, coaches in his life helped him envision becoming a successful coach. Wait until you hear the term: "Building Sweat Equity."
