Minnesota is hiring Brooklyn’s player development coach Pablo Prigioni as an assistant coach, league sources tell ESPN. Prigioni has common Rockets history with Minnesota President Gersson Rosas. He’ll focus on offensive end under coach Ryan Saunders.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 7, 2019
Prigioni, 42, who served at Brooklyn's player development coach, will focus on the Timberwolves' offense, according to Wojnarowski.
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.
