Word broke a week or so ago that the Timberwolves are likely getting new uniforms. Whether it's before the 2016-17 season is unknown, but to get ready for the future unveiling ESPN Uni Watch is doing a redesign competition for fans to take part in.
The best redesigns will be used in the next ESPN Uni Watch article.
Rubio hosting a charity basketball tournament
Here's the word from ESPN's Marc Stein.
"Wolves guard Ricky Rubio is hosting a charity hoops game on Sept. 24 at the Target Center in Minneapolis called "Rubio's Hoop For Hope" in honor of his mother, Tona Vives, who died after a long battle with cancer in May. All proceeds to benefit "A Breath for Hope Lung Foundation." Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins, Kenneth Faried and Ronny Turiaf amongst the committed participants while more commitments from NBA players and other celebrities are expected."
