In May, Minnesota lured away director of global scouting Gianluca Pascucci. Both he and Prigioni have connections with new Timberwolves president Gersson Rosas.

Prigioni spent four seasons in the NBA as a player with the New York Knicks, Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers. He was also a two-time All-EuroLeague selection and was a member of the senior Argentine national team that won the bronze medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics.
