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.

So, here we go...

Wolves forward and union player rep Anthony Tolliver said by text Tuesday night that he expects he and his teammates will gathered at Target Center next week for "at least a few days" of their own workouts before training camp opens Dec. 9.

The league has given team executives and agents to talk business first thing Wednesday morning after forbidding conversation since the lockout went into effect on July 1.

They are not permitted to enter into agreements -- written or otherwise -- until the free agency period begins the same day as training camps do.

Right...

Team practice facilities are set to be open to players on Thursday. They can be supervised by strength and conditioning coaches but aren't supposed to have contact with coaches and executives.

Like I said, yeah, right...
