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.

Springtime in Paris

David Kahn and agent Dan Fegan are in Paris today, watching Wolves draft pick Ricky Rubio play right now in the opening game of the Euroleague's Final Four.

ESPN.com's ESPN3 is carrying Regal Barcelona's game against CSKA Moscow live now.

Or you can catch it on NBA TV at 2 p.m. today.

That opening game will be followed by the Partizan Belgrade-Olympiacos game.

That game features two former NBA players -- Linas Kleiza and Josh Childress -- who will be restricted free agents. Kleiza is the kind of player -- young (25), can play both forward spots -- whose rights a team with cap money like the Wolves could try to lure away from the salary-cap stressed Denver Nuggets.
