Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor, who also is chairman of the NBA Board of Governors, has been watching his league’s playoffs closely.

“I don’t think there’s a clear champion, and that’s a good thing,” he said.

It also means Taylor expects his Wolves to be in the playoffs next season.

“We have the players to do it,” he said. “We were close this season.”

Taylor also said his team is “going to try” the free-agent market.
