Do you have an aspiring basketball player in your family? A kid who dreams of one-day playing basketball in the big leagues? Then watching the NBA G League Iowa Wolves play at Wells Fargo Arena should be on their bucket list!
With more than 50% of current NBA players first making their appearance in the NBA G League, the Minnesota Timberwolves franchise is focused on developing next-level talent in Des Moines. Local media is starting to take notice as referenced in the Travis Hines Des Moines Register article from August 2022.
“One mostly undiscussed aspect for the franchise, though, is how the new president of basketball operations Tim Connelly, and the front office he leads will utilize the Iowa Wolves, its G League affiliate in Des Moines since 2017.
“We hope it provides an avenue and an environment for both players and staff to work on their craft and ultimately help the Timberwolves,” Connelly said. “It’s a great opportunity to give players bigger roles and allow them to continue to better their game”
