T’Wolves Ready to Pay Luxury Tax to Keep Team Together

The Minnesota Timberwolves are expected to have one of the most expensive teams in the NBA next season. Despite their impressive performance, reaching the NBA Finals, they fell short to the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Finals.

Currently, the Wolves have around $191 million committed to nine players, surpassing the projected second apron of $189.5 million even before finalizing their roster. This level of spending is unprecedented for the franchise.

However, amidst the ownership transition, both Glen Taylor and the new owners, Marc Lore and Alex Rodriguez, seem determined to maintain the team’s core despite the financial challenges according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Nevertheless, the constraints imposed by the second apron might necessitate some roster adjustments to manage the high payroll.
