Brown was an All-Star for Erie in the NBA D-League (now the G-League) last season. His contract with the Wolves means he likely will spend most of the season for their G-League team in Des Moines. Players on two-way deals are allowed to spend no more than 45 days with the NBA team.
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.
