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.

LaVine, Muhammad, Dieng, Shved highlight summer-league roster

Posted by: Jerry Zgoda under Wolves players, Wolves news Updated: July 6, 2014 - 12:16 PM

The Wolves' summer-league team reports for four days of workouts starting tomorrow at Target Center before it flies to Las Vegas.

Games there in the Vegas Summer League begin on Saturday.

Here's the roster, highlighting from this summer's draft picks Zach LaVine and Glenn Robinson III and last summer's picks Shabazz Muhammad and Gorgui Dieng.

Third-year guard Alexey Shved also will play, as will former Utah center Kyrylo Fesenko.

Sounds like Wolves assistants Sidney Lowe, Sam Mitchell, Ryan Saunders and David Adelman all might take turns coaching the team, in some combination or other.
