Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Chris Finch is staying busy this summer. On Monday, he held a youth basketball camp at Maple Grove Middle School.

"This is so much fun for me," Finch told KSTP. "I remember going to camps like this when I was younger and I love to see the energy and the enthusiasm the kids bring to the court."

More than 50 kids showed up to participate in the basketball clinic. The kids received instruction and tips from Finch and his staff. Campers ranged from 7 to 14 years of age.

The Timberwolves and Lynx Basketball Academy have skill drills for all ages and will be running these camps from now through the month of August.

Former Wolves player Christian Laettner will be attending Tuesday's camp session.

Finch circled back around when asked about what he liked about the 2020-21 Wolves team the most.

"I don't think our team is that far away from being successful. We just need to find out what defensive system will work the best for us and I believe we'll make great strides heading into the next season."
