On today’s show, Dane is joined by Britt Robson of MinnPost to discuss Tim Connelly being named president of basketball operations, Karl-Anthony Towns making All-NBA, Malik Beasley’s future with the Wolves and what Andrew Wiggins is doing in the playoffs.
With Connelly being named POBO on Monday, Dane and Britt reflect on the process that led to the hire. The Sachin Gupta and Chris Finch dynamics with Connelly. They also reflect on how the leadership core has shifted from Tom Thibodeau’s dismissal in 2018 to where it is today, just four years later.
KAT making All-NBA is a deserving and impressive accomplishment for the 2021-22 season. It also opens up the possibility of signing a 4-year, $211 million supermax contract extension. That is discussed at length, along with other moves that Connelly could potentially make in his first few months on the job.
Finally, Dane and Britt discuss Andrew Wiggins’s success in Golden State reaching a new peak in the conference finals. A discussion about why this has come together for Wiggins in Golden State and why it seemed unlikely he would ever hit this level had he stayed in Minnesota.
