NBA preseason starts in just about three weeks, and we cannot wait. But before preseason games are played, training camps are held. Many teams take the opportunity to travel, see someplace new, relocate and bond while on the road. As for the Timberwolves, here’s the¬†Minneapolis Star Tribune¬†reporting:

The Timberwolves today announced their training-camp schedule, which starts a week early this year both because the NBA season starts a week earlier this season and because they have that preseason trip to China, too.

The Wolves will hold training camp in San Diego at two local universities for seven days before they play the Lakers in a preseason game in Anaheim on Sept. 30.

They’ll have their traditional media at their Mayo Clinic Square training facility on Sept. 22 and then fly immediately after that to Califonia. Their first camp practice is the next morning, Saturday, Sept. 23.
