It will be renamed Mayo Clinic Square. The Timberwolves and Lynx have used a cramped space in the basement of Target Center, where a fitness club is also located, for their practice court and strength and conditioning work. The new privately financed $20 million facility will open prior to the 2014-15 NBA season. he new space will be on the third level of the building. It will have two basketball courts, with the Timberwolves and Lynx each having a primary court, and include additional offices for coaches, scouts and staff, as well as expanded workout areas.

May 3 13
David Kahn is out as Minnesota Timberwolves' president of basketball operations and Flip Saunders is in. The Timberwolves decided not to pick up Kahn's contract option for the 2013-14 season, thus ending an unsuccessful run in which the club went 89-223 and failed to make the playoffs in his four-year tenure as executive decision-maker. Though the Timberwolves have yet to officially announce the hiring of Saunders, the 58-year-old confirmed on ESPN that he has signed a long-term deal to replace Kahn and will hold a minority ownership stake in the team, as well.
