Minnesota Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor was re-elected chairman of the NBA Board of Governors today during the NBA’s league meetings in New York.

Taylor, who has owned the Timberwolves since 1995, was first elected chairman on Oct. 23, 2008. Before Taylor was elected chairman in 2008, he was a member of three Board of Governors committees: advisory/finance, planning and labor relations.

The Wolves have made eight playoff appearances, including a trip to the Western Conference finals in 2003-04, under Taylor’s ownership.
