MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Rick Adelman asked for more veterans to coach in Minnesota, and Timberwolves president of basketball operations David Kahn delivered them.
Adelman spoke to the media on Monday for the first time since the Wolves completed a significant overhaul this summer. Kahn added shooting guard Brandon Roy and forward Andrei Kirilenko as the main veteran pieces around a young core of Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio and Nikola Pekovic.
Kahn also shipped out Michael Beasley, Anthony Randolph and Darko Milicic. Adelman says he likes the more mature roster because he thinks the group will practice harder and take losing more personally.
The Timberwolves open Adelman's second training camp on Tuesday in Mankato.
