With the NBA lockout ongoing, the main official NBA news revolves around overseas signings or NBA team front office changes.
The latest management moves comes out of Minnesota.
Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports:
Timberwolves assistant general manager Tony Ronzone has left the organization.
Known for his international-scouting connections, he was hired in spring 2010 just about the time Fred Hoiberg was headed for Iowa State’s head-coaching job and had a voice in personnel moves that included drafting Wes Johnson and Derrick Williams as well as trading away Al Jefferson, acquiring Michael Beasley and re-signing center Darko Milicic.
The Wolves, through a spokesman, said they and Ronzone mutually have agreed to part ways and wished him good luck.
Ronzone coordinated workouts and was the franchise’s public face in preparations for the June draft.
The Timberwolves had the worst record in the NBA last season, finishing with 17 wins and 65 losses.
