The Minnesota Timberwolves are experiencing a lot of transition this offseason, with a new/old coach (Flip Saunders) and the looming trade of All-Star forward Kevin Love.
With the 2014-15 NBA schedule now out, here are five games that stand out on Minnesota's 82-game slate.
The Timberwolves will show off a new-look roster for the home crowd at Target Center against a fairly talented Pistons' squad with a new head coach in Stan Van Gundy.
Minnesota will open the season on the road for the first time in 14 seasons. Their interest in Grizzlies' coach Dave Joerger before he decided to stay in Memphis adds a layer of intrigue here.
National television. Two coaches who were college teammates, and one fired the other when he was in the Timberwolves' front office. Defense optional for sure. First to 120 points wins?
Assuming Kevin Garnett decides to return for another season, this will be the last time Timberwolves' fans will get to see the best player in franchise history in action at Target Center.
Assuming the rumored trade goes through, this will be Kevin Love's first game back in Minnesota. Need I say more? Oh, there is that other guy that will be playing for the Cavaliers that may be a bit of a draw too.
