The Minnesota Timberwolves announced that the team has hired Ed Pinckney as an assistant coach on Randy Wittman's staff on Friday.
Coach Wittman on the hiring:
"We are very lucky to have the opportunity to add a coach who I think will have a great rapport with our big men as they develop in this league," Wittman said. "Ed brings with him great experience working with younger players from his years at Villanova which will benefit the younger talent on our current roster."

Dime Magazine on Reebok’s Family Reunion recent NBA vs. Media softball game, featuring Allen Iverson, Baron Davis, Gerald Green, Shaun Livingston and Marvin William:

But with the exception of Gerald Green, it was the exact opposite for most of the NBA guys. Gerald and I were kind of feeling the same way about the event. Before the game started, he and I were chopping it up and he said he had no clue what he’s doing on the diamond and would just have to rely on his athleticism. And while he’s warming up, G-Money’s athleticism helped him blast one about 300 feet.
