In a totally unexpected move, Minnesota has chosen to dispense with the services of Gersson Rosas, who was president of the team’s basketball operations since May 2019. The news, which has taken by surprise given that training camp begins in a week , has been unveiled by the Minneapolis organization itself through a brief statement.
Today, the Minnesota Timberwolves part ways with the president of basketball operations, Gersson Rosas. As an organization, we remain committed to building a winning team that our fans and the city can be proud of, ”said the Wolves through owner Glen Taylor.
As we said, it is a completely unpredictable decision. On the one hand we have the chosen moment. Without being a playoff team last year, months have passed without competing in which the organization could have opted for a change of course of such significance; however, they have rushed until they have exhausted the draft and free agency; In other words, whoever arrives will be quite limited in the coming months beyond being able to close transfers. In addition, there was no rumor that pointed to a disagreement between the parties; What’s more, a week ago Rosas was present at the presentation of the team’s new additions without any glimpse of any problem.
