Despite an item in yesterday's Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Villanova assistant coach Ed Pinckney has not agreed to become an assistant with the Minnesota Timberwolves, a source close to the situatino said.
Pinckney, a star big man at Villanova who played 12 NBA seasons, has been approached by several teams over the last 2 years. He was unavailable for comment.
From Brian McKitish/ESPN:
I'm not buying all this Sebastian Telfair talk in Minnesota, and I fully expect Foye to be the starting point guard from Day One. With the youth movement in full effect, expect Foye to take advantage in his second season.
Mavericks owner Mark Cuban reportedly admitted that he thought the team was close to getting Garnett on draft day. So, what might the Timberwolves have gotten? A source says the package featured PG Devin Harris and SF Josh Howard.
