The news of the removal of Gerson Rosas caught even members of your own organization. However, the last 24 hours have revealed the case as an accumulation of open conflicts that filled the glass of patience with which Alex Rodríguez and Marc Lore reach the presidency of the Timberwolves. The dismissal is carried out by the still owner Glen Taylor, but the future tenants of the position make the decision. The resolution seems rushed a few days before the training camp begins, but the board already has some names on the table, including Elton Brand and Sachin Gupta.
According to the latest information collected by Dane Moore, a journalist dedicated to Minnesota Timberwolves, the idea of the franchise is to acquire what they would consider one of the five best general managers in the world. Although availability and lack of time play against these ambitions. Their intention to run a full search process has also been leaked, where they again operate against the clock.
For now, only its two main alternatives can be analyzed. Elton Brand is the current assistant general manager of the Philadelphia Sixers, although he has lost relevance since the arrival of Daryl Morey. His role there has always been in doubt given his inability to build a team that consistently qualifies for the ring.
For his part, Sachin Gupta is already serving as an interim, waiting for a firm decision to be made. He already sounded like a possible Kings management candidate last year, but he eventually ended up coming to the Timberwolves in a minor role. Its main endorsement lies in being the main author of the transfer tool ESPN, in addition to having a good reputation in franchises such as Sixers or Rockets.
