MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Timberwolves have announced a number of additions to their front office and coaching staffs, including assistant general manager Noah Croom and director of player personnel Brian Pauga.
The Wolves made the announcement on Sunday night, two days before they open their first training camp under new president and coach Tom Thibodeau and new GM Scott Layden.
Also announced were Thibodeau's assistants. Ryan Saunders, son of the late Flip Saunders, and Vince Legarza were retained from the previous staff. Longtime Thibodeau confidante Andy Greer was hired away from Toronto. Rick Brunson, who worked for Thibodeau in Chicago, also joined the staff along with shooting coach Peter Patton, who worked under San Antonio Spurs shooting guru Chip Engelland.
