Minnesota Timberwolves president Chris Wright says he looks forward to the energy from Minnesota's successful WNBA club to fill the Target Center as the Wolves preseason gets underway.
A very international Wolves team will face CSKA Moscow on Monday night, and if anyone on the Wolves roster knows a thing or two about this team, its Alexey Shved. Shved played for Moscow as a teenager up until joining the NBA last year.
Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio and Nikola Pekovic haven't had much playing time together due to injury and illness, but they'll likely start together tonight, along with new shooting guard Kevin Martin. Look for some backcourt action between Rubio and Martin -- their transactions should be something to watch all season.
