Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

Have you always longed to spend your winters in Sioux Falls?

Well, here's your chance.

The Wolves' Sioux Falls, S.D. affiliate in the NBA D League is holding player tryouts in five U.S. cities, from Philadelphia to Orlando and Miami and yes this weekend in MInneapolis.

After going 25-75, the Skyforce is looking all over for help, including from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Timberwolves' Target Center practice facility.

There's a $150 nonrefundable registration fee intended to keep anyone and everyone from walking in off the street. Such local college prodcuts as North Dakota's Travis Bledsoe and Minnesota State-Mankato's Marcus Hill are among those who have already signed up.

Go to for a registration form.
