& Marc Lore, who, for five years was president of Walmart’s e-commerce division, have entered exclusive negotiations to buy the Minnesota Timberwolves from Glen Taylor.
glen taylor was having literally the worst time as wolves owner for YEARS and i find it hilarious that a billionaire bought a franchise for fun like a toy and it turned on him
All jokes aside for a second...
Glen Taylor turns 80 this April. His family wants nothing to do with owning the team(s).
I totally understand and respect the fear of relocation, but I personally think (for whatever it’s worth) that today is GOOD news for the state of Minnesota.

So Glen Taylor wouldn’t sell the at wolves to KG and partners but he is a bit to sell them to Arod steroid using ass and his partners he about to move they asses to Seattle
Wowwwww so Glen Taylor wouldn’t sell the T’Wolves to KG but sold it to fuckin A-Rod 😐😐
Yeah, and they're totally dissing their greatest player in franchise history by not giving him a chance at ownership, instead selling to a guy who has no ties to Minnesota or the NBA. Glen Taylor can suck it
So Glen Taylor is paying them $1.5 Billion to take the pathetic Timberwolves of his hands?
Sounds about right!
